Apne Aap Women Worldwide works with 1692 survivors of prostitution and their daughters and also the women and children from oppressed castes living in the red light area of Forbesganj in Bihar for last fifteen years. We work with these girls and women, to prevent their trafficking by facilitating their access to legal, social, economic and political rights. The massive flood of 14th August, 2017 not only washed away the homes and possession of these women and their families but also destroyed our school, community center and field office.
We have put up a plea to the global community to help us rebuild homes of 200 women from the red light area and adjacent areas which becomes the target area for the traffickers during flood and earthquake, the two major forms of natural disaster which is prevalent in this region in foothills of Nepal. Thanks to the donors, we have been able to help 17 survivors of prostitution and their daughters rebuilding their lives. We have uploaded the reports and photographs of the houses in the previous reports.
However, there are still at least twenty women from the oppressed communities who continue living in despicable condition. One more rainy season would wash away the tattered bamboo frame which currently are their homes.
We renew our call for helping us rebuild houses of at least twenty more women living in the red light area to prevent their exploitation by the traffickers.
Each house costs about $1174
