Sub-project: Helpline

India and Indonesia

Helpline is a joint partnership between the State of Orissa Women and Child Development and Grassroots Asia. It provides an emergency hotline for women and children in distress offering emergency response to those on the street 24/7. Many of the women and children who work at Helpline were once in the same situation. Helpline receives an average of 500 calls per week. All women and children who require medical services, shelter, food or counseling are given access to this free of charge.
