One Stop Safe Haven for the Women of Jaipur

One Stop Safe Haven for the Women of Jaipur

The One Stop Crisis Management Center for Women in Jaipur, also known as Aparajita, caters for all women who are in unsafe situations.

The Center provides a large range of services to the women who come seeking refuge. These services can include anything from shelter and counselling to legal advice and police intervention.

Such facilities are extremely important to have in a patriarchal society, like Jaipur, and gives women a way out of seemingly inescapable situations.
