Outreach collective.

The Outreach Collective has been actively involved in reaching out to the South Asian community in order to raise awareness about Manavi and the services we offer. The Collective has also helped raise consciousness about the issues of violence against women and has conducted cultural sensitivity trainings for mainstream providers so they can better assist South Asian Women who are victims of violence.

Manavi always welcomes community members who come forward and express an interest in volunteering their time and services. Our volunteer program requires people to attend a Volunteer Orientation before they can become actively involved. We had two Volunteer Orientations in 2006-one in April and another in November, and many new and enthusiastic volunteers joined the Manavi family. If you or anyone you know is interested in volunteering, please contact the Manavi office for more details.
