Project Report | Mar 29, 2021
Facing each Day with Focus and Calm

By Shana Greene | Executive Director, Village Volunteers

We want to thank all of you who have so generously donated to assist New Light in Kolkata, West Bengal. An act of kindness is more than a simple act of feeding a child or providing shelter. Supporting new Light is a way to promote gender equality thorough education and life skill training thereby reducing harm caused by violence and abuse to women and children in the streets of the redlight district.

Those of us who love New Light and have seen the results of almost 20 years of work in the area of human slavery and trafficking, know that this program is much deeper because it addresses the whole child and breaks the cycle of intergenerational prostitution and human slavery.

We have recently partnered with the talented I, Rabindranath and She who have rallied their community through their gorgeous dance and music to highlight and support the work of New Light. I, Rabindranath and She is an artistic endeavor to raise funds for sex-workers and their children for New Light. They have pledged to create 8 music videos featuring Indian classical dance and the timeless melodies of Rabindranath Tagore, whose pen always stood strong against social injustice.

Check out their GlobalGiving Fundraising link below. The link below will also provide you with their videos created to engage and thank donors and stating an existing social problem that New Light is tackling.

Thank you
