UNICEF estimates that 1.2 children are trapped in child prostitution. Throughout India, there are communities that traditionally engage in inter-generational prostitution. Where girls are married starting anywhere from age 13 and then prostituted by force by their husbands. When a child under, 18 years of age is forced to perform a commercial sex act this is human trafficking.


This project through Apne Aap will provide non formal education, sewing training and income generation to give these women and girls and alternative sustainable livelihood so that they can break the cycle of prostitution

Long-Term Impact

We want to organize four sequences of three month training classes a year for a total of 40 girls (aged 15-21). The sewing classes will enable the girls to produce clothes that can be marketed internationally providing a steady income alternative to prostitution.
