The reach of Helpline

The acknowledgement of there being a helpline is huge, I understand. But, is it truly reachable from small villages?

The first thought.... so glad there is a Helpline! The second women know?
- Is there awareness? Probably not...
- Is there accessibility? I thought I would try it - I entered names of villages to find nearest NGO - Palampur, Kanarag (Himachal) - no results display and provide no further information.
- Then looked for active campaigns to market the helpline number - but no success. 

The Pro:
You can submit a helpline so if Women Cell wants to register, they can do that and provide location on Map.

Good point, Isha. While we know that the safety of girls and women is an issue outside of cities, keep in mind that for this challenge, we're focusing on low-incoe urban areas. Looking forward to your onward inspiration + insights... and we're loving the ones you've shared so far.
