Karen commented on Stopping Violence Begins at Home

The sharing of experiences among the groups is really good. I agree that a core group needs to provide the feedback and updates to all groups and keep the work on everybody's to do list, mostly when you ask respected persons who are giving of their time to be involved. It is good that Action India is taking the lead to make sure the idea moves forward.

I like the testimonials. They show how women helping other women leads to positive change that expands from one woman to many women. When I first looked at the Action India brochure and poster files on violence against women they seemed overly busy and bright with the highlighting of terms, but when I read Santosh's testimonial that she was able to piece together the information in the Action India brochure with only a 5th grade level education which led her to seek help then I understood that these postings work to help women with limited education to know they have rights.

  I like that this idea examines the existing Action India and other NGOs Mahila Panchayats and collaborates on best practices to seek mentorship and improvement among them. What I also like about Action India's concept is that each group you have identified (1) NGO and other grassroots organizations, (2) legal and other service providers, and (3) the oversight group are all separate and important components in the success of the implementation of the PWDVA 2005 and other recent laws protecting women, girls, and children against various forms of violence. Can you provide more information on how you and the NGO organizations will work with the other groups to create a unified effort on the implementation of the PWDVA 2005?
