Challenge

Andhra Pradesh & Telangana is the second largest supplier of women and children for sex trafficking. Every year 20,000 women and children are trafficked, over 45% of them being children. At one end is the need to prevent the problem but at another is to rescue the ones already trafficked and restore dignity.This effort is done in an unsafe environment of social hostility and threats from organized criminal syndicates.

Solution

The new campus with Emergency Shelter & Economic Rehabilitation Unit that is constructed as a part of the therapeutic community is the safe haven for such victims who will be provided holistic support which includes psychological care, medical support, legal aid, life-skills and livelihood options.

Long-Term Impact

Holistic rehabilitation not only prevents re-trafficking but it also promotes effective prosecution. 600 child and adult victims will be supported at any given point of time.
