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.
