The Kiran Project was set up in 1990 to meet the needs of women from the Indian sub-continent experiencing domestic violence.
Since its inception the Project has expanded its services to meet the needs of the wider Asian community and now provides a holistic range of services to it’s diverse client group.
The Kiran Project believes that all women and children have the right to live free from violence and the right to leave a home or relationship where the risk of such violence exits.Women experiencing domestic violence can be abused physically, emotionally, mentally, sexually or exploited financially. These abuses can arise in personal relationships as well as within extended families.
The services provided by the Kiran Project are provided in a non-judgemental, non-directive form, in a culturally sensitive way, thus empowering women to make their own choices and decisions and to regain control of their lives.
The Kiran Project provides safe, temporary accommodation to Asian women and their children and is the only agency of its kind in the London Borough of Waltham Forest. This is a service provided by Asian women for Asian women and children.
