 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. 

I thank you all for the support extended without which this transformation would not have been possible.
