SOUTH ASIAN WOMENS EMPOWERMENT AND RESOURCE ALLIANCE
Beginning January 1, 2015, DVRC will offer culturally-specific services to immigrant communities specifically from South Asia (India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, Maldives, Bhutan, Fiji islands, and Afghanistan).
SAWERA, which stands for South Asian Women's Empowerment and Resource Alliance, will provide advocacy services taking into account this community's domestic violence situations under special circumstances such as immigration and visa issues, and cultural and language barriers.
We encourage the South Asian Community in Washington County to actively engage with DVRC by volunteering, donating and supporting this program.
Stay tuned for more information. If you have any specific questions about volunteering or donating, contact Aditi Vyas at 503-640-5352 OR email her at email@example.com
