Shaheen Women’s Resource and Welfare Association (also known as Shaheen), established and registered in 2002, is a women-led, grassroot level organisation based in the heart of Old City, Hyderabad.

Marginalised women from the Muslim, Dalit and other backward communities, facing different forms of violence, walk into the organisation every day in the hope of support and intervention.

“Yeh Jo Bazm Hai Qhawateen ki

Chhuye Aasman aur Zameen Bhi

Iski Godh mein hai Mohabbatein

Aur le Udaan Shaheen ki!”

The Women Collective we have here
