Representatives of Sakhi One-stop Centre, Saharanpur, visited Disha headquarters on 19 October 2022 and interacted with the organisation’s workers, para-legal volunteers, and health volunteers.
The centre manager, Savita Saini, said that One-stop Centre was such a place where any violence affected woman got all the facilities at one place, and she did not need to approach different departments. Such centres have been set up in all the districts of Uttar Pradesh to provide counselling to the victims so their issues could be resolved. “If the resolution is not coming, help of the police and district legal authority can be taken,” she said.
Ravita Maithani, representative of the centre, gave information related on laws on domestic violence and government schemes like Sumangala Yojana and Rani Laxmibai Yojana. Kanika Gupta, another representative, gave information on the treatment available for physically and mentally injured women. She distributed awareness material for women among the participants. She gave information on women helpline numbers like 112, 1076, 181, 108, 112, 1090, and 1098.
Senior Disha workers shared information on the organisation’s work with Sakhi One-stop Centre representatives. They thanked them for their visit and interaction.
