In 2011, I travelled to India and undertook a period of voluntary work in an agency in Delhi, called RAHI, which works with survivors of childhood sexual abuse and incest. RAHI is the Hindi word meaning “journey”. It was a privilege to be involved with this amazing agency, who are a constant source of inspiration. www.rahifoundation.org
