“I won’t forget that day when I was abducted and deceived by my next room neighbour, Mr Tarun Sardar at the age of 14. Now I can easily realize that he took advantages of my family’s poor economic situation, our six-membered family had no land and a little earning to sustain ourselves. Tarun was able to convince me to leave with him and later handed over me to another trafficker named Shukla Singh in Delhi and finally sold me to the brothel. I was abused physically and mentally every day & had to suffer to the worst possible.i was rescued from Delhi and I finally returned, to get back to my family with Jabala’s support but was stigmatised by the community members and returned to the shelter home of Jabala.

I was counselled frequently and then exposed to cultural activities by Jabala. I felt vulnerable and knew the necessity of security, I wanted to do something productive in this field . Thus Jabala facilitated to cultivate my interest and I received various functional skill development trainings which assisted me in being placed in a renowned Hotel as House Keeping Attendent with dignity and an earning of Rs 6000 per month and regain my self-esteem and dignity. Later, I got an opportunity to change my job and got promoted to senior House Keeping Attendant within a few months.

I am much more confident now and can earn my own living.

There is always a choice and I have made mine, to be self-dependent! I thank you all for helping me out in this journey."

Khushi Sardar (a girl from Hathhuba, Habra, North 24 Parganas)

Support is always crucial and 'You' deserve all the credits—there are many more miles to be covered and Jabala knows she is not alone

I am Nasreen( name changed) a 19 year old just joined as a House Keeper in a reputed hotel at Kolkata, West Bengal, India. My life has taken a full circle in last 4 years. At the age of 15 I was raped by my own uncle and became pregnant and delivered a child. Then to save my family prestige I was married off to a man double of my age and sent to Mumbai. There after few months my husband sold me to a brothel in Pune. After living in Hell for 13 months was rescued by police and sent to Jabala's Shelter home. I became abusive by then , had addictions. I used hate everyone and attempted to flee the shelter home. After long counselling sessions and persuasions by the sisters at Shelter home I slowly started to see reason and joined training classes. Did a certificate course in House Keeping, undergone functional literacy classes. Got an opportunity with the hotel and joined as House keeper with Rs10000.00per month salary and accommodation.

Life has a different meaning for me now, I am lot more confident and can take decisions for myself.
