MEDIA ROOM

Women In Need has been able to achieve what the state or any non governmental organisation in Sri Lanka have failed to achieve over the past three decades. WIN has filled a gap left by the state through providing essential services concerning violence against women through its focus on strategic and inclusive service provision . WIN is the only organisation with a complete programme aimed at addressing the issue of SGBV in Sri Lanka using various methods such as networking, lobbying and advocating against violence against women. Women In Need has received wide media coverage through television, radio, newspapers and social media for the elaborate work it does. WIN has also conducted many events and fundraisers in order to reach out to the public and raise awareness on the issue.
