EFWJSW’s Task Force & Rescue Team
for Women and Girl Child Victims of Sexual Violence
EFWJSW is a forum for women and adolescent girls who face sexual violence at home and work place, difficulties in their daily life in accessing resources which can help them in their path of success and healing. We provide victims of domestic and sexual violence the opportunity to confide their thoughts and fears to our caring healers. By being able to figure out and resolve their socio–economic and emotional challenges and past regrets, victims gain perspective and self-respect. Professional counselors, therapists and psychologists work with the victims on rebuilding their self-confidence and strength so that they can feel better. We help them in becoming fully capable to participate in society and life and manifest a positive future for themselves. EFWJSW wants victims of Sexual Violence at Home and Work Place to be able to find solidarity and support with others in similar situations, thereby gaining confidence and security in the process of healing. The measures that EFWJSW takes-
Group Therapy Sessions- By working with each other in group therapy sessions and peer work exercises, participants who otherwise might be unable to let go and open up (for fear of being judged or placed on the outside) have an opportunity to understand that they are not alone in their journey towards rebuilding self-respect, and that working with others can be essential to self-healing. Participants are given activities that build teamwork as well as self-confidence. They are also given a non-judgmental support group that listens to their concerns and respects their willingness to improve their lives.
Counselling- Professional counselors, group therapists and psychologists work with participants in creating a positive image and life-dynamic that encourages participants to reach out and interact with others in confidence.
Sympathetic Support Group- We help the victims of domestic and sexual violence by getting them in touch with other stakeholders like police, counsellors, lawyers, social workers, medical social workers, doctors, journalists, etc.
