Muslim Family Law leaves interpretation up to local clerics, and it is only in the instance that the case goes to court that legal processes are considered. Indian courts have repeatedly knocked down the right to instantaneous triple talaaq, but this has no bearing on practices across the country because the legal process has yet to be codified.
Founder Elca Grobler writes about gender based violence and what inspired her to pursue the idea of training local women to be #peacemakers and #changeagents.
We must say “no” to violence against women and girls on Human Rights Day…and every day. The global community must recommit to a pathway of action, a pathway that involves policies, programs and resources to achieve progress as a society.
While violence against women and girls is endemic in India, it touches us all, is in our backyard – irrespective of where we live, our socioeconomic background, our educational achievements.
In December 2015, we responded to the need for localised support by launching the Secunderabad Counselling Centre! This centre is proving to be as pivotal as we anticipated, and is operating with its own dedicated team of PeaceMakers and two Counsellors.
Now, it’s time to expand.
Your donations make it possible for us to give women and girls the choice to live a life free from violence and exploitation.
