Challenge

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. Prajwala has located new land close to the city of Hyderabad that it can purchase so that the women in our shelter can commute to their jobs and continue their journey to financial independence. But the land for the new women’s shelter costs $75,000 and we need your help urgently.

Solution

- Email a link to this page to your friends and family about this emergency. - Tell people in your church/template/synagogue about building this new shelter. - Organize a fundraiser in your community to help build a new home for the victims.

Long-Term Impact

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.
