Raksha — meaning “protection” in several South Asian languages — is a Georgia-based nonprofit organization for the South Asian community. Raksha’s mission is to promote a stronger and healthier South Asian community through confidential support services, education, and advocacy. Raksha works towards healing, empowerment, and justice for survivors of violence. Guided by values of community collaboration, diversity in leadership, and the dignity and worth of every individual, Raksha strives to empower and serve the South Asian community.
Though we primarily serve the South Asian community, we provide services to all those who face similar barriers to justice, regardless of ability, country of origin, race, religion, caste, socioeconomic status, gender identity, age, immigration status, or sexual orientation.
