In Sanskrit, ‘Dhira’ means ‘brave, self-possessed.’
Our aim is to reduce violence against women and strengthen the position of women in India. We support local partner organisations in the implementation of selected projects for women’s empowerment. Currently, we are supporting the women-led NGO Prajna Counselling Centre in the implementation of a radio project about women’s rights and guidance for women.
We also support Prajna’s short-stay house where women who ran away from home can find shelter, receive psychological and medical treatment and where they are helped to reintegrate into society. We have an emergency fund which we use to support women – especially those from remote areas – in the short-stay house.
