The National Network is led by Crisis Center Zabota, founded in 1999 to provide psychological and social services to families experiencing violence and to run educational programs. Zabota operates two hotlines and a counseling center; the group’s shelter closed after five years due to government intervention and lack of funding. In addition to supporting families, counseling and support services have been extended to women prisoners who murdered their abusers. To address prevention, Zabota holds seminars on domestic violence for rural women, students, and government workers, runs violence prevention campaigns, and conducts opinion surveys on violence and trafficking. The group collaborates with other women’s anti-violence groups in Almaty and is a member of the Union of Crisis Centers Kazakhstan.
