Chayn is Pakistan's first global volunteer-led crowdsourced website that informs and supports women facing domestic violence. Eighty percent of women in Pakistan face domestic violence in their lives (We Can Report, 2011). Yet cultural attitudes and the legal and economic status of women prevent them from taking action to protect themselves. Many even believe that acts of domestic violence are acceptable, or their own fault. 

Chayn aims to combat domestic violence in Pakistan, one informed woman at a time. Within three months, the project has grown into a global movement with over 30 volunteers contributing to the online and offline initiatives. The website empowers women to live more independent social lives both on and offline.
