Since 2011, Rescue Foundation has rescued over 700 women and children from Traffickers in the North India region. Our New Shelter home aims to support rescued women and children with holistic services to help them recover and renter society. We have the capacity to provide Care, Protection & Support to over 100 girls.
There are millions of women and children who are victims of trafficking in India, in 2018, NCRB data shows over 2 lakh women and children went missing. It is regarded that women and girls are trafficked for sexual exploitation and minor boys are often forced into labour jobs and exploited physically. They are lured away by promises of better lives, jobs and education while traffickers also prey on those in vulnerable situations and coerce them into forced labour and prostitution.
Since 2000 we've been conducting rescue operations across the country and have rescued thousands of women and children. We have four shelter homes across Delhi and Maharashtra. We are entrusted by the government and police to assist them in rescue operations and provide necessary care and protection to rescued women and children. At our homes, an integrated comprehensive plan is developed for each individual so that they can tap on their potential and return to society as empowered beings.
Our goal is to help women and children who have been forced into labour and prostitution, to rescue them, to provide them with all the support they need to recover and move forward with their lives. Each year we rescue an average of 150 girls, while we provide care and protection to 400 - 500 women and girls with a wide range of programs and help them get home.
