How Indu empowers, gives power, and shows courage
Intimate partner violence accounts for 15% of all violent crime in the United States, and while domestic violence is a danger to all of us, the most vulnerable members of our society are often the most victimized. A study published in the Journal of American Medical Women’s Association by Raj A. Silverman J. in 2002 found that in that year 42% of South Asian women had experienced physical or sexual within that year while 36.9% reported having been victimized in the year previous.

We also collaborate to:
