AKS FOUNDATION is working towards establishing two 24/7 crisis helplines initially at Pune and subsequently pan India,to reach out to victims of abuse and sexual assault. The helplines will go live from June 2013. Women’s organizations across India do have helplines but most of these are not manned 24/7. AKS FOUNDATION plans to ensure that these helplines are open 24/7 and manned by properly trained personnel who will render advice ,support, and assistance, physical ,moral and legal as far as possible.
The help lines aim at being available to victims at all times of day and night so that with proper support and assistance victims of assault and trauma can overcome their trauma and turn into courageous survivors !
