The total lockdown in India beginning In March created unprecedented problems. in the city of Hyderabad ASSET partner Prajwala faced the monumental task of feeding  nearly 3,000 hungry families. These consisted of daily wage earners and refugees whose children were vulnerable and had to be protected from traffickers.

We raised sufficient funds and made arrangements for providing groceries for each family to last a month. To observe social distancing, each family was provided a voucher that a family member exchanged for a box of groceries at a pre-selected store.

Teams of survivors of sex trafficking sewed thousands of face masks for first responders and Healthcare workers.

In a series of meetings with Khatija Rahman, Executive Director of the A.R.Rahman Foundation, arrangements are being made to have their Sunshine Orchestra perform at the Child Friendly Villages. Sunshine Orchestra’s members are all marginalized children from the slums of Chennai.

Child Friendly Villages are run by Bachpan Bhachao Andolan, started by Nobel Laureate Kailash Satyarthi. In these villages, children are protected from traffickers and are taught life skills in addition to normal schooling. There are more than 200 such villages in operation. With the introduction of Sunshine Orchestra performances, vocal and instrumental music will be introduce to the children.

In rural India, it is estimated that nearly 40% of girls drop out of school due to lack of availability of sanitary pads. Girls use dirty rags, newspaper and other material, get sick and miss school for a week once a month. This causes them to fall behind and school teachers and officials are not helpful in remedying the problem.

Once the girls drop out of school, they become primary targets and easy prey for sex traffickers who are eager to entice them with job offers in big cities and subsequently sell them to brothels.

In the northern part of the state of Karnataka, there is a community of more than 3,500 former sex workers who have rebuit their lives starting income generating businesses. In order to help their daughters and grand daughters stay in School, ASSET India Foundation has approached Saral Designs in Mumbai to supply a Sanitary pad making machine. Community members will be trained in the operation of the machine and pads will be distributed door to door.

Saral Designs was founded by Suhani Mohan, a female engineer who quit a high paying investment banking job to help you g women women deal with menstrual hygiene.
