One Stop Centre Scheme – Sakhi Scheme

In India, gender-based violence has multiple manifestations. From facing domestic and sexual violence to being the sufferer of toxic practices like honour killings, dowry, acid attacks, witch hunting, trafficking, enforcing sex-selective abortion, women and girls are robbed of their dignity and existence. Moreover, the unreasonable injustices violate their fundamental rights and disrupt their health and mental being, thereby averting their growth.
