NGO Activities : 1. Anweshi started in the year 1993 has grown over the years to become one of the major NGOs with activities like counselling, community work, legal aid cell, adolescent work, short stay home, library and documentation centre as well as administrative support section. On an average we deal with 350 cases every year comprising of issues like family problems, property rights, rape, sex racket cases, adolescent problems etc. 2.

Anweshi was able to start the Short Stay Home service for deserted women and children in the year 2003. 263 women and children have been provided with shelter till now. 4. Because of our steady progress Anweshi was chosen as one of the service providers under the Protection of Women against Domestic Violence, 2005 (PWDV) Act in the year 2007. 5.

In 2002 Organized the International Film Festival on Women, Kerala. 10. The role played by Anweshi in exposing the involvement of highly influential politicians in the Kozhikode Sex Racket case, otherwise known as Ice Cream Parlour case has been largely responsible for the popular image throughout the state for the organization. The uncompromising and persevering fight carried on by Anweshi to include Mr.P.K.Kunhalikutty, the all powerful ex minister of Kerala in the accused list has become a legend now. This leader was defeated in the latest assembly elections, which was never expected. 11. This year anweshi has launched a theatre camp which staged an issue based play and performed at the local town hall and was very well received by the audience. 12. With more than 15 years of experience Anweshi is also a body of substantial knowledge base.

Other activities like website, newsletters and documentary have also been undertaken by anweshi.
