The campaigns against gender based violence are largely focused on making women more aware to prevent violent situations or what to do when such instances arise unexpectedly. The campaign “ Nari,  e juddhe tumi eka nou” lists down emergency response centers and their contacts categorized according to districts. In addition to that, another campaign focuses on the needs of women friendly service centers. The main objective of such centers entail to stop gender based violence and providing social and psychological protection along with legal advice. Further to provide entertainment, social status and networking opportunities for girls, women and children. Gaining Social assistance and improving on required work skills are also expected from such centers.

Such centers are also equally applicable for disaster stricken areas. During such instances, survivors facing violence should be dealt with severe sensitivity.
