Women and girls will have increased capacity to extricate themselves from violence if they are provided holistic services. AWSAD believes that the provision of holistic services through a core set services is a key factor to empower women and girls to exercise their power within. This enables them to overcome the trauma of violence and begin the process of rebuilding their lives. It is the impact of a combination of different services that work together to increase their confidence and capacity to overcome the trauma of violence.
