PRAJWALA

Prajwala is an anti-trafficking organization working for the welfare of women and children who are victims of commercial sexual exploitation. As prostitution is a form of sexual slavery, Prajwala believes in preventing women and children from entering this trade. Prajwala works with the conviction that, to break the walls of learnt helplessness that a victim of sexual exploitation develops, a multi pronged approach is necessary.

Rebuild their home, Rebuild their lives: A New Home for victims of sex-trafficking in India

Six hundred survivors of sex trafficking are being forced to relocate because of the construction of a new mall in Hyderabad. They have three months to buy land to build a new shelter.

This August, 600 survivors of sex trafficking will be forced to relocate because of the construction of a new mall in Hyderabad. Funding is urgently needed to secure land to build a new shelter for the women.

As the organization struggles to find a solution, securing land in a suitable location is difficult. The current shelter is located in the heart of the city giving women easy access to education and jobs. A remote location will inhibit the organization’s efforts to reintegrate women into the workforce.

The organization has successfully found 4 acres of land close to the city of Hyderabad, enabling these women to keep their jobs. A new shelter will be built there and will serve as a safe haven for the survivors who seldom find acceptance in society.

These women have been rescued and rehabilitated by Prajwala, an anti-trafficking organization for 11 years. Prajwala has provided shelter and services for such women. The organization has given education, vocational training, and employment that have helped these survivors find the acceptance and confidence they need to lead independent lives.

Awareness Rally By Transition Center

Prajwala Anti-Human Trafficking Organization

Awareness Rally By Transition Center Held On 18th Oct 2007

Second generation Intervention Transition schools are bridge schools that support a child in difficult circumstances to develop coping skills necessary to reintegrate in the mainstream society. The transition schools provide holistic healing in terms of psycho- social and scholastic needs of the child. The schools aim to mainstream a child, back to the society with effective coping and survival skills.

Community Social Response On 18th Oct 2007 as part of community awareness programme children of six transition centers organized a social awareness rally for the surrounding communities of the schools.

Each transition center took a silent march to spread public awareness on the following issues. The objective was to educate and empower the community / slums at large on how to prevent its occurrence and respond effectively to the problem when it comes to their attention. Public announcement material such as banners, pamphlets, slogans on placards was developed by children and teachers on the following issues.

1.Girl Child 2.Prevent Chikungunya & Dengue [caused due to mosquitoes] 3.Pollution & Make your city clean and Green 4.Eradicate Child labour 5.Clean the water before drinking

The rally started from the school compound and the children walked along the roads covering the community surrounding the schools. Community people responded by reading the message and interacted with teachers and children. The positive response from the community people encouraged the children to take up an issue every month to create awareness in the community.
