Kranti empowers trafficked girls and daughters of sex workers to become catalysts of social change and lead the women's revolution in India!
Kranti (Revolution) addresses the problem of trafficking of underaged women into Mumbai by providing these girls (Revolutionaries) with education, leadership training, career guidance, and the resources they need to achieve their life goals. Kranti's model will have a spiraling effect as the Revolutionaries become empowered enough to: sponsor and mentor younger trafficked women, be the voices of oppressed women across India, and prove that every woman is an intellectual asset, not a liability.
If we provide formal education, leadership training and mentorship/career guidance, the Revolutionaries will build sustainable, independent futures-ensuring they are not vulnerable to being trafficked and can be agents of change in their communities.
By 2025, Kranti will: Create a new framework for sex worker empowerment focused on choice; develop a sustainable, accountable model for anti-trafficking NGOs; and establish recognition in India that every woman is capable of changing the world.
With my 6 years of experience in brothels and NGOs, I know that *I* can change society's attitudes and make them understand the value of women - I just need the tools to lead this revolution! - Maahi, Former sex worker/trafficked girl; Kranti's leader
