Domestic Violence is but one of the many injustices women face. While children and men also experience this, the statistics are staggering on how many women encounter this.

That first slap, that private rebuke slowly becoming public, that control, that unpredictability – so many different signs that steadily lead to more and more abuse. For some it is physical. For others it could be emotional. Sexual abuse as well as economic abuse are also rampant. None of these are acceptable as every human has a right to a dignified respectful life and no other human has the right to treat any other being in a manner that harms, belittles or stifles.

Whitefield Rising is partnering with Vimochana to bring together a resource group to help victims of domestic violence across all socio-economic strata. Listening, Believing, Supporting, Filing police case if necessary , Counselor help, legal help, medical help can all be immensely useful to one already undergoing so much trauma. But doing this right is our aspiration as the victims are at their most vulnerable. Guiding them to their optimum future with themselves charting their own course with the support of resource groups like ours would be our goal.

Read below for information we have recently gathered.
