Daily leadership classes on women and child rights are held at the Hariharananda Vocational Training Center. Awareness camps are also organized in rural villages. The WISH (Women's Independent Self-Help) Network is growing into a large web of support and resources for thousands of women throughout Odisha. A team of more than 30 lawyers offer free services for women who are victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse. Grassroots India offers housing, food, emergency medical services, mental health counselling, and transportation free of charge. Publications are also produced for distribution.
