What we do

Crime is a crisis for the victims and the organization provides psychological, social and legal help to enable victims to live a just and dignified life.

DISHA helps the stakeholders in the criminal justice system to ensure that everyone who comes under the criminal justice system, whether they are a victim or a common man, gets fair & respectful treatment while receiving justice

Due to ignorance, lack of information and neglect, many people continue to suffer to violence. With the right information and help, crime can be prevented and even if it happens, immediate help can be sought from the system
