What began as a small, volunteer-run group in 1996 has now grown into a well-respected local and regional organization. Saheli is the only South Asian domestic violence prevention agency in Massachusetts and has helped thousands of women rebuild their lives and break the cycle of abuse for themselves, their children and future generations. Run mostly by volunteers and a very small staff, dedicated advocates with cultural knowledge and speaking multiple South Asian languages have provided caring and compassionate help to many women in crisis.
The Purple Purse Challenge allows us to sustain and expand upon on our Economic Empowerment Program – which has given hundreds of women the tools and resources to live safe, self-sufficient and empowered lives. Our goal of raising $10,000 will support:
1. The Sujana Chalasani Fund for women in crises
2. The Nirbhaya Fund - enable women to get education, skills training, ESOL, and mentorship to lead successful lives
Each dollar counts! Donate now and enable us to win prizes throughout the Purple Purse Challenge to increase our impact and reach in ending financial abuse in domestic violence!
