The project helps girls who have run away from home – perhaps to become a Bollywood star- or been forced to leave home due to abuse. When they arrive at railway stations in Mumbai they have at most 15 mins before being seized by brothel agents and disappear without trace. These girls are at high risk from prostitution and domestic slavery. The project provides care, counselling, repatriation and education for 200 runaway girls; including access to education, vocational training, healthcare, counselling, recreation, a daycare centre and night shelter. Indirectly a further 390 individuals benefit through families of girls repatriated. Awareness-raising on gender issues with the girls, station communities and the wider public reaches a further 3500 people.
