Sathya Sai Maa Shakti Dayini is part of a larger integrated project to support women in Varanasi experiencing violence. A partnership between Sai Maa Vishnu Shakti Trust and SARC, a respected local social work organization, it has been made possible through the support of Sai Maa and the Sai Maa community, and the dedication of SARC.
To complete this project we will also be offering a women’s shelter, where women with no safe place to go will be offered short-term accommodation. At this time we are still actively searching for a property, as suitable large free-standing properties available for rent are scarce in Varanasi. Until this part of the project is created we will continue to offer emergency shelter in the center itself to ensure that the women reaching out to Sathya Sai Maa Shakti Dayini are safe.
