Sakhi is committed to serving survivors through a combination of efforts including—but not limited to—direct services, advocacy and organizing, technical assistance, and community outreach.
Sakhi’s work to end gender-based violence starts with our creative and dedicated staff members who contribute to a unique work environment that is collaborative, fun, and committed to social justice. Sakhi is an equal opportunity employer. Candidates of diverse backgrounds, identities, and abilities are encouraged to apply.
