Anweshi celebrating 20th anniversary

Dear friends and well-wishers,

It gives us immense pleasure and joy to invite you all to be a part of celebrations marking Anweshi’s 20 years of existence. The journey has been marked by 20 years of dedication and commitment towards the goal of upholding the dignity of woman and fighting for her justice. We have been the voice and strength of innumerable women who have suffered silently in the hands of men trying to exercise their power. Today incidents of violence against women have taken unimaginable forms affecting the very existence of a woman. Anweshi has always strived to fight against these forces ensuring an environment full of security, safety and stability in both public and domestic spheres. Our comprehensive interventions include counseling, legal aid, short stay home, community level outreach activities as well as adolescent project and an independently functioning library. Our sensitization work among health care professionals mainly focuses on their role in stemming violence against women.

Anweshi has not only established itself at local level but our work has also been appreciated nationally and boasts of being a part of larger institutional network working tirelessly to achieve the higher goal of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of well-being, growth and empowerment.

In celebration of our 20th anniversary, we would like to invite you to join us in a special occasion on December 23rd 2013, Monday at Kozhikode Town Hall, 4 p.m. onwards. The function will be inaugurated by the celebrated NBA activist Medha Patkar in which the chief guest will be the celebrated writer, Sri. M.T. Vasudevan Nair. The function will be enriched by the felicitations of Ms. K.R. Meera, Sri. C.R. Neelakandan, Sri.N.P. Rajendran, Prof. M.N. Karassery, Sr. Neetha ( Principal, Providence Women’s College), Dr. Khadeeja Mumtaz, Dr. Shirly Vasu, Dr. P.A. Lalitha, Ms. K.P.
