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 the majority of women and girls are trafficked for sexual exploitation; they are lured away by promises of better lives, jobs, education, even love, while traffickers also prey on those in vulnerable situations and coerce them into prostitution.
Trafficked girls are subjected to physical, mental and sexual abuse in order for them to submit and are forced to entertain 20-30 customers a day. While conducting rescue operations, we’ve also found girls crammed into hidden rooms with little to no ventilation and limited food/water.
Since 2000 we've been conducting rescue operations across the country and have rescued thousands of girls. We currently operate 4 fully equipped shelter homes
We are also entrusted with caring for girls rescued by the police and other anti-trafficking organisations.
Rescued girls need immediate healthcare and counselling, we have in house counsellors and doctors on call, while we also work with government/private hospitals and partner with mental health organizations so that our girls get the best support. Each girl has an individual care plan created which is developed keeping her best interests in mind. We employ various trainers who train the girls in various forms of vocations like computers, tailoring, bag making, jewellery making, beauty therapist, spoken English, basic literacy and even support them with formal education through NIOS, government schools and colleges.
Survivors are also part of Child committee’s in each home where child leaders are groomed to represent their groups’ and actively participate in the management of the home.
Our legal teams will also be working with them to help claim compensation and assist the state in prosecuting perpetrators.
Our goal is to help women and girls who have been forced into prostitution, to rescue them, to provide them with all the support they need to recover and move forward with their lives.

In November, our girls and volunteers held a wall painting activity so that they can leave an imprint of themselves in our halls. They spent the entire day painting the walls and coming up with beautiful ideas at the end of which they were all very happy to see the results
Festivals are an important part of the lives of our girls. We try to ensure celebrations of festivals in our homes and since COVID norms were slightly relaxed, we were able to celebrate Christmas & New Years as well
On 26th January we celebrated the 73rd Republic Day of our country, there was a flag hoisting ceremony and the chief guests were our local polic officers. The girls held several performances and even our chief guests took the initiative to share a few stories and gave advice to our girls.
