Story

National Family Health Survey (NFHS-4) suggests that 30 percent women in India in the age group of 15-49 have experienced physical violence since the age of 15. The report further reveals that 6 percent women in the same age group have experienced sexual violence at least once in their lifetime. About 31 percent of married women have experienced physical, sexual or emotional violence by their spouses. The widespread socio-economic dependency of women underlines this unbalanced equation with their husbands and other family members. The fear of social exclusion and banishment, and the lack of effective response to violence sees the Indian woman face continuing violence and intimidation.
Inchara Home for Children is an initiative by Inchara Foundation, which is committed to the cause of children in need of care & protection, especially the victims of sexual abuse and violence. Our work centers around providing a homely environment, nutritious food, quality education, safe shelter, regular therapeutic counseling, vocational training, and legal support to ensure proper rehabilitation and restoration of our beneficiaries. We have catered to more than 110 girls until now. Currently, we are housing 20 girls, working towards their holistic development and engaging them in skill development activities to promote independence and empowerment.

Every contribution, however big or small, will help give them the life they deserve. 

Thank you in advance for your contribution!
