Challenge

Current anti-trafficking and other NGOs for marginalized girls shuffle girls quickly from street/brothel to a shelter, where they are put through quick, unsustainable skill training programs and eventually sent back to family life - unskilled. Without the option to pursue education or become financially independent, 80% of girls end up back on the street or in the sex industry. Kranti turns marginalized girls into social change agents, and this transformation requires a safe, long-term home.

Solution

Kranti's house will be India's first long-term healing home for socially marginalized girls who do not wish to be repatriated/married but want to become financially independent social change agents within their communities -even if it takes 10 years.

Long-Term Impact

By having a permanent home which girls will leave only when they are able to sustain themselves and their families, the Revolutionaries will be able to pursue any career they choose - proving to India that women are not economic burdens, but ASSETS.
