Shelter Home for women in distress
Pehchan, connoting “identity”, is the shelter for distressed women victims and survivors of gender violence (often accompanied by their children), provided by Shakti Shalini.
It has an independent ground floor unit, 4 rooms and 2 bath cumtoilets, a kitchen, a sitting room and a comfortable, green courtyard. It can accommodate a large number of victims together if the need arises. However, ideally it can cater to a maximum of 10 women along with their children in cases where they accompany the mother. As a policy, no woman who seeks shelter post sunset is ever denied shelter. The women there live in a secure and clean environment. Sanitary and dietary amenities as well as medical aid are regularly provided at ‘Pehchan from case to case basis.’ However, recognizing our own present limitations of resources, expertise, infrastructure and workforce, we do not accept individual who suffer with very extreme mental conditions and clinical psychiatric concerns.
