Since December 1, 2008, SAPNA is partnering with the local police in Alwar, Rajasthan to run a guidance and protection centre for women under the aegis of the Mahila Thana known as the Mahila Salah Evam Suraksha Kendra. The MSSK is a holistic redressal centre for women providing support to women facing violence by way of:

  • Assisting them to negotiate their way through the Criminal Justice System;
  • Settling disputes through alternative dispute resolution mechanisms;
  • Providing rehabilitation to women survivors of violence;
  • Providing medical aid, legal aid, psycho-social support, shelter, economic rehabilitation and any other relief required.

The concept underlying the centre is that of providing a comprehensive strategy of redressal for women who come to the centre for support. The single window assistance can range from mediation to legal aid, to intervention within the police system and the judiciary, to economic rehabilitation, to trauma counselling, to shelter and care.

Representatives of womens organisations and other civil society representatives assist the centre regularly on a voluntary basis. The centre is in the process of setting up referral services with other organisations in order to provide effective relief to the women seeking assistance from it.
