Welcome to Kiran

Kiran, which means ‘ ray of light’ in Hindi, is a not-for-profit organization that serves and empowers South Asian victims of domestic violence across North Carolina by helping them rebuild their lives and ending their cycle of violence. Our mission is to serve victims of domestic abuse by providing information, crisis counseling, legal advocacy, referrals, skills development, and other culturally-sensitive support services needed to meet the unique challenges they face.

Kiran serves people whose origin or background is from the following countries: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Myanmar (Burma), Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. Though there are differences in language, customs and religions across these countries, these regions share many basic cultural and historical similarities.
