This is great organization, who makes great difference in these women's lives, who does not have any body to help them with resources. Saheli's goal is to have abuse free life for all south Asians in New England area.

Saheli serves South Asian women experiencing abuse and violence in the Massachusetts area.They also do work overseas helping women who have been abandoned. Its a small organization, just three part-time staff, but it does a lot - English, computer classes, free, domestic abuse assistance, educational seminars on health and immigration. It does an annual walk in Burlington against violence. They are a very dynamic group who do a lot with very little. They welcome volunteers and are always looking for people to help them in many capacities. I enjoyed the friendly and energetic women at this organization.

Review from Guidestar

Saheli is run by volunteers and three part-time staff. The South Asian women meet once a month in Burlington public library for several hours. They welcome all community members to attend meetings. The women are all very professional and inclusive. I attended their meeting in June. I found that it was a waste of time. It was chaotic, the agenda was not followed, people interrupted a lot, and no one was in charge. This organization does very good work for women surviving domestic violence but they cannot run meetings. They did not assign any tasks to me although I did ask how I could help. I did not get the meeting notes, they had my email address. I would like to go back again, but no one invited me to return.

The Great!

I wish they could assign a task to me I really want to help South Asian women.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Have a designated person be in charge of monthly meetings.
