POWA is based in Berea in the Johannesburg inner city area. We have branches in Katlehong,
Vosloorus(East Rand), Evaton,Tembisa, Soweto.
We serve the entire Gauteng region and have clients drawn mainly from the magisterial districts of
Johannesburg and Pretoria.
We currently run two shelters for abused women in East Rand and West Rand respectively that
accommodate 10 women and their children at any given time.
Although abuse against women happens across all sectors of the community, our primary target is
women who come from disadvantaged communities with limited or no resources at all or those that
cannot afford alternative resources in their areas.
