The Asian Circle 5th Anniversary Fund Raiser
The Asian Circle, are working with the poorest indigenous tribal villages in Chhattisgarh, India in partnership with Oxfam India to overcome poverty and end violence against women and girls.
The funds that we raise, for this award-winning programme, are being used to build support centres for women, provide sustenance, counselling, education and livelihood programmes. In addition we are working with the men, youth and elders to engage and create awareness about domestic violence.
Here is what your money will provide:
£100 provides vital legal aid to 5 women
£300 provides a monthly counselling session for 20 women facing violence
£500 provides capacity building for women survivors, for example by establishing a survivors’ support network
£1000 could help cover the cost of awareness raising session for 100 men on violence against women, challenging entrenched attitudes and beliefs about women
£2000 could pay for 250 police officials to be educated about issues surrounding gender-based violence
£3900 would train 650 village women to form vigilance groups to support women facing violence.
Please donate generously and create a society where all women are valued, safe, empowered and free from violence.
