Anweshi Womens Counselling Centre addresses the issue of gender based violence. Their objective is womens empowerment (psychologically, socially, and legally) and development, thereby enabling them to tackle violence, and raising awareness about gender discrimination in the community.

Their activities include:

  • Nirbhaya Shelter Home: The Nirbhaya Shelter Home Project managed by Anweshi provides shelter to victims of trafficking. The beneficiaries are provided with all basic amenities like food, clothing, etc and treated with love and care. It is financially supported by the Kerala Social Justice Department and monitored by the Kerala Mahila Samakhya. The Home has completed one year of operation and extension for running it for another year has been granted by the government authorities. It is managed independently, and functions on the basis of specified government guidelines.
  • Sound Alert Project: Supported by the National Mission Empowerment of Women (NMEW), the project aims to recognize the importance of women’s efforts and contribution in the process of development by creating women’s resource groups at each Panchayat in the Kozhikode district. This helps in addressing women’s concerns in a collective manner. A 5-day capacity building programme was organized in FY15 for selected Panchayat representatives.
  • Sanghaditha Magazine: Anweshi launched its own magazine Sanghaditha to etch out a distinct space in print for portraying expressions of women on all walks of life. The aim is to bring together new initiatives, and new talents and trends in the women’s movement. Basic subscription charges are charged to subscribers.
  • Short Stay Home: Anweshi created a short stay home facility for women and children who are in desperate need of temporary shelter. These women are rescued from situations of abandonment or attempted suicide. They are given hope through counselling. A tailoring unit has been established for training inmates. 40 women and 12 children benefitted during FY15.
  • Seminars and Awareness Programmes: Their goal is to institutionalize the concept of gender equality among various stakeholders to foster progressive changes in social, environmental, legal, and health frameworks for the appropriate allocation of power and resources in society. Experienced lawyers help them conduct legal literacy classes on legal rights and provisions concerning women’s welfare.
