The new campus of Prajwala is finally ready and became fully functional in the month of August. This new campus has an Emergency Shelter, Economic Rehabilitation Unit and also is the base camp for all Prajwala interventions.
Finally after 2 decades of existence, the organization is physically secure!!!. With two main gates it is difficult for anybody to barge into the campus and attack the team. The team for the first team is not constantly looking behind their backs to see if they are being assaulted.
Although the location is slightly out of the city and the staff have to take the extra efforts to travel and reach the office, once inside the campus it is a safe haven.
The Emergency Shelter which became functional late August has already supported 44 victims of sex trafficking. The city police and the courts are grateful for a 24x7 facility accessible to them anytime day or night.
Ofcourse the challenges related to the campus continues as we have to still pay the final amounts to all our contractors. Over 100,000$ is due.From the civil contractor, electrical contractor,bio-gas plant, sewage treatment plant to the solar panels...the final amounts to be paid after the completion of work is pending.
But if we have already endured so much...this too shall pass.
Today for the first time,we are able to invite our friends and supporters from all the world to come and visit us as security concerns are more manageable and we have a safe place to meet and greet!!!
