Summary

In the western Indian state of Rajasthan, in the middle of India's tourist triangle, just 100 kilometres away from the pink city of Jaipur a community has beaten all of modernity's quests to preserve an abysmal practice: to force all its girls into sex work. Girls as young as 10 years old, dressed in bright clothes and amateur make up, stand outside single-room shacks lining the road. iPartner India is supporting these girls by providing them an opportunity to study and pursue their dreams.

Challenge

iPartner India does a lot of work in the anti-trafficking domain with collaboration from multiple partners across India. In 2017, we got reports from our partner organisation in Mumbai, India that during rescue operations a high percentage of young girls who were being rescued from brothels in Mumbai belonged to a district of Rajasthan, India. On further investigation, we gathered that most of these girls came from a particular community who pimped their daughters in the name of tradition.

Solution

iPartner India through a prevention model "Rakshan" (means 'Safety' in English), is working with the entire ecosystem to save the current and next generations of vulnerable girls from trafficking while providing major focus on education of girls (Prime beneficiary) to bring about change and promoting the holistic development of the community. iPartner India with family's consent is admitting girls in the boarding schools to help them continue their education and save them from pimps.

Long-Term Impact

It is assumed that given the right opportunities, the selected girls from the Nat community will be able to not only excel in their respective classes but will also strengthen their fight against sex trafficking and the existing injustice prevalent in their communities. They will become role models and inspire other girls to follow their dreams. The reputed educational institution selected for the studies of these girls, will equip them with skills leading to their holistic development.
