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.
