Welcome to Sakhi Trust’s State Devadasi Help Desk, a dedicated platform committed to addressing the complex challenges faced by Devadasi families and advocating for their rights and well-being. The Devadasi system, with its historical significance, has left a profound impact on the lives of these women and their children.
Our work revolves around several crucial areas of intervention:
1. Government Scheme Implementation: We actively work towards the effective implementation of government schemes designed to support Devadasi families. Our goal is to ensure that these families receive the assistance and benefits they are entitled to.
2. Advocacy for Devadasi Rehabilitation Bill: Sakhi Trust is a staunch advocate for the comprehensive Devadasi rehabilitation bill. We actively engage with government authorities at various levels to push for the adoption and implementation of this bill, which is vital for the well-being of Devadasi families.
3. Crisis Support: We provide critical crisis support for Devadasi mothers and children, offering a lifeline during times of need. Our focus is on alleviating immediate challenges and ensuring their safety and security.
4. Abolition of the Devadasi System: Our unwavering commitment extends to advocating for the complete abolition of the Devadasi system. We believe that every woman and child should have the opportunity to break free from this deeply rooted practice and build a better future.
5. State & District-Level Meetings and Conventions: We convene meetings and conventions at both the state and district levels to facilitate discussions, share insights, and drive collective action for the welfare of Devadasi families.
6. Comprehensive Rehabilitation: Devadasi families deserve comprehensive rehabilitation. We tirelessly work towards the creation of a comprehensive rehabilitation act to address their multifaceted needs.
7. Advocacy with Government Officials: Our advocacy efforts extend to direct engagement with government officials at the taluk, district, and state levels. We aim to hold constructive discussions and push for the necessary reforms and support.
8. Land Ownership Advocacy: In specific districts, such as Belgaum and Vijayanagara, we advocate for access to land ownership schemes. Our goal is to help Devadasi families secure land rights for the property they already possess.
