By connecting theses women, they can provided needed support for one another while demonstrating that these women are not alone: they are in this together. Saath.
Saath's mission is to provide a central place on the web for the women of India to have accessible, anonymous and secure support when dealing with the after-effects of sexual assault and domestic violence.

Why a Mobile Web Messaging Forum?
Women in India may have difficulty visiting, calling, or finding a support center that can help after an instance of domestic violence or sexual assault. This Mobile-Web Messenger app aims to provide access to information on the centres nearest them, what sexual assault and domestic violence are, while also providing them with an anonymous outlet to communicate with others who've gone through similar experiences. This is working to be part of Facebook's Innovation.org apps that are free to people in India. Women are one click away from connecting to someone similar to them to talk to or finding a local women's crisis center, all while providing them with the safety of doing it quietly on their phone.
