Shamsaha uses highly effective, affordable, and well-known methods to assist women and communities who have experienced abuse or violence. In order to enhance the lives of women and girls around the world, we build our humanitarian policies and practices using both our international competence and our cultural familiarity. We keep our objective of EMPOWERING WOMEN TO THRIVE at the forefront of all we do.

crisis support round-the-clock


Promoting equality, harmony, and respect, empowers families and entire communities to thrive. Shamsaha plants a seed of hope and empowerment every time it supports a woman on its 24/7, multi-lingual crisis helpline – the first and only of its kind in the region.


Following international standards of care for both victims and volunteers alike, Shamsaha works to promote both a real and a perceived sense of safety for women in the community. When women feel safe, they have the space to grow, thrive and build dynamic healthy communities.

Gender-based violence and numerous other forms of discrimination have an impact on women and girls all around the world. Shamsaha seeks to promote healthy and motivating activities for women and girls alike because systemic disparities must be tackled with generational change in mind.
