“Sanghamitra, as the name suggests, is a trusted friend and guide for safer communities,” said Sajjanar. The main objective of the initiative is to help women who are in need of support from the available ecosystem, he said. “We will train men and women to be Sanghamitras, who in turn will help women in distress. The training will commence from August 22,” he added.
