Sahaitha

A community center for women to meet, build relationships and find peer support for education and life skills

The story of Sahaitha

In a culture in which women are bound by the many expectations of others, treated as mere work force, taught to deny their feelings, and subjected to the crushing of what dreams they hold, we at Sahaitha invite them to experience love, care and deep friendships with each other.
 

​We have worked in the same locality for well over a decade-and-a-half and have followed the community through many different seasons.  A large proportion of the women coming to us are migrants who find it difficult to navigate life in the city.  We seek to empower them through providing education and skills training, making sure they are registered and have necessary papers, and helping those who are sick to get medical care.
 

We also engage with migrant children in need through non-formal educational support.

Our Approach

Under our literacy programs, we help women to attain basic literacy and train them inEnglish and computers. We also help women to pursue higher-level classes or college degrees. We help women with their online applications and admissions, sorting out necessary documentation, and teach them their basic rights.

We offer informal education to children from migrant communities and tuition support to school-going girls.

 

Our​ skill-building classes include tailoring, cooking, and baking.

Our support groups are instrumental to help women find perspective and tools to overcome difficulties, especially in the areas of relationships, violence and family life
