Ab Aur Nahi “Hinsa” (AAN)
AAN is an initiative of Sahyogi which addresses the issue of Gender based Violence with a strong focus on
Domestic Violence in villages and slums in Bihar. The programme is aimed at contributing towards reduced
prevalence of violence against women/girls. Under the AAN initiative Sahyogi educates women, adolescent
and youth to identify GBV/DV and respond; creates a cadre base in community on GBV/DV, provide counseling
and legal aid support to the survivor and link them with existing govt. services for justice.
Sahyogi is working with students and teachers in schools and colleges on EVAW (End Violence against
Women). The main objective is to transform adolescent and youth as agents of change, who will respond to
violence against women and girls within their family and society. The focus of the programme is to capacitate
adolescents and youth in recognizing VAW, responding to them and to link them with service delivery points
like Mahila Thana, Police Station, Women Helpline, Sahyogi and other agencies working on the issue. This
programme also helps in providing a platform for dialogue with development workers and women rights
activists in changing the stereotypes.
