Problems we address

Mental illnessWomen with mental health disorders in India are invisible - vulnerable to malnutrition, disease and rape. Others are institutionalised against their will, living in insanitary conditions and exposed to sexual abuse.
Leprosy60% of global new cases detected every year continue to be in India despite a declaration in 2005 that leprosy was eradicated (1 cases per 10,000 population).
Crimes against women848 Indian women are harassed, raped and killed every day. Of course, those are just the reported numbers.
