Bembala is a Bangalore-based organisation – an initiative of the citizens group, Whitefield Rising– and a free and confidential volunteer-run support center for women and children who face abuse or violence. The alarming rise of violence against women and children is of critical concern for Bangalore today. Bembala is a community-led and volunteer-based initiative that provides emotional support, while enabling protection and empowerment through a network of partners.
