Manavi has accumulated a record of offering flexible, culturally appropriate, and linguistically accessible services to victims of violence. The services offered by Manavi have emerged organically, as the organization has endeavored to meet the needs of the women who sought assistance during their crises. Manavi believes that services that centralize women’s needs would break the isolation that the majority of victims of intimate abuse experience and empower them to move toward living violence-free and productive lives. In the many years of its existence and service provision, Manavi has gathered a diverse set of experiences of working with women across class, sexuality, caste, educational level, abilities, and various other social markers.
Manavi advocates continue to be discerning of the needs of South Asian women, and thus, periodically design new services in response to women’s requirements. Manavi’s current services include:
- Crisis intervention and Advocacy (Project Raahat)
- Culture specific counseling (Project Sabala)
- Court and medical accompaniment
- Women’s support group
- Legal clinic and referrals (Project Insaaf)
- Immigration relief and gender asylum (Project Zamin)
- Interpreter services
- Economic Empowerment (Project Samarth)
- Safe home (Project Ashiana)
- Transportation as needed
- Outreach and education (Project Rokeya)
- Training and technical assistance
Manavi is committed to raising awareness about violence against women in the community. To this end, Manavi volunteers and advocates participate in various events to distribute informational brochures among community members, join panel discussions, and provide assistance where needed.
