ASFI becomes ASWWF by expanding nature, scope and activities. Acid Survivors Foundation India (ASFI) had been relentlessly working in eradicating Acid Violence from the society since 2010. During this journey, victims of different others forms of women violence approaching the foundation for a way out. The sincere approach and faith on us has made the Foundation decide to stand beside them. Accordingly, it was also decided to modify the name of the Foundation to Acid Survivors & Women Welfare Foundation (ASWWF) in 2017 to better reflect the enhanced scope of activities and reach out to others who are suffering from different forms of violence.
Acid Survivors & Women Welfare Foundation (ASWWF) purports to be the leading NGO in India for prevention of acid burn violence as well as for providing support services to survivors through a network of chapters and partners, by sharing knowledge, expertise and best practices.
ASFI acts as a forum for advocacy of acid related causes, endeavours to promote a social environment conducive to elimination of all forms of gender violence and espouses a firm legal basis for prosecution of offenders and prescription of national guidelines for treatment, aftercare and rehabilitation of acid survivors. Acid Survivors Trust India (AST-IND) was established in perpetuity at Kolkata as a registered nonprofit organization, thanks to a generous endowment by SREI Foundation, in February 2010:

For public and charitable purposes;

For setting up countrywide Centre for the care, treatment and                 rehabilitation of acid victims; and

For prevention and elimination of this menace by generating awareness               through campaigns, public education, regulatory and other appropriate               measures.

The name was later changed to Acid Survivors Foundation India (ASFI) when it became an In-Country Partner of Acid Survivors Trust International (ASTI), a London based charity and centre of excellence in this field.
