Take Action

Sakhi was created to fill a critical need to serve survivors and mobilize community members to condemn abuse. Be a part of the movement to create more resilient, violence-free communities.

Since 1989, Sakhi has broken the silence surrounding gender-based violence, clarified its root causes through an intersectional lens, and recognized it as both a pressing and systemic issue.

In building justice and equity for survivors, Sakhi actively invests in providing direct services, educating our community and building awareness that advocates for systems-change work. Active engagement from community members is necessary to our process, as we continue to take a survivor-centric approach that illuminates the complex realities and needs of our community.
