Mahila Suraksha Evam Salah Kendra (MSSK), ALWAR

MAHILA SURAKSHA EVAM SALAH KENDRA, ALWAR “De-normalising domestic and other forms of violence against women.” Where do women as mothers, wives, daughters-in- law, and daughters go when they face violence at home? More often than not, the violence remains unreported in the unabashedly patriarchal setup.

From December 2008, SAPNA has been partnering with the police and the Department of Women and Child Development of the Rajasthan government for running the Mahila Suraksha Evam Salah Kendra at Alwar to safeguard the interests of women and girl children. The Kendra provides a social safety net ranging from mediation to legal aid, police support, medical help, and trauma counselling, Of the 309 cases received this year, 293 were resolved. Apart from handling casework, our team also tries to reach the community through many outreach activities.

Seeing violence against women as a gross violation of their human rights, SAPNA works to allay the fear of the survivors and helps them rebuild their lives. It partners with other like-minded organizations and civil-society activists to sensitize communities against social norms that condone male authority and violence. It also tries to ensure that the re-victimization of the survivor does not occur.
