She makes the world bright, but still struggles to see light.

 

Rescue foundation was established to accelerate the progress on meeting needs of survivors. While rehabilitation we stand behind survivors equal participation in all aspects of their lives, focusing on five priority areas: enhance knowledge by providing formal and informal education, help them to upgrade their healthy, increase strength to face the world with legal aid program, self-realization and actualization by counseling and build a new confidence and economically sustainability by vocational training and providing jobs.

Our three protective homes is an actual home for them where they grow, achieve energy and strength to cope and face with the world. We not only help them to learn how to face and fight under critical circumstances but also we they learn how to nurture own self and live in harmony hence after.

Besides Challenge of identification of our investigators in the brothel or Attacks of perpetrators on us, we are still optimistic toward any risk to save innocent lives from the clutches of evil. It also strengthen us to develop more and more effective strategies to attain our goal of rendering humanitarian lives to more and more girls and help them regain their human rights.

She could go home with a smile on her face as she was leaving with more money, thanks to all the kind people who supported for the same.

 

  • 10 grade with flying numbers: One of our girl Swati (name changed) got 71 % in her 10th grade, for any teen this exam is a big hurdle and kids are under tremendous pressure. Swati (Name Changed) is an orphan and has HIV, she was recently shifted from another shelter home to our Kandivali home. When asked does she want to study further, she said ‘YES’ and since then our staff worked tirelessly to ensure she gets admission in the college. We salute her for her strength & Commitment. She indeed is an inspiration to all of us. Seeing her performance 7 other girls who are appearing for 10th grade are super encouraged and charged.

 

  • Group Counselling: A course of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy was conducted for a small group and 6 of these girls completed the course and received their certificates from our NGO Partner who conducted it.  This is a 6 months course conducted for all girls to cope with their trauma.  It has a syllabus of 9 stages wherein we gather information about the girls to understand them better.  The course has techniques to help them to deal with their feelings of anger, stress, fears, and anxiety suicidal thoughts and helps them to relax.  It is conducted in small groups for better participation.

 

 

 Operational Difficulties

 

Delhi has a very large influx of minor and major girls trafficked from Nepal, Bangladesh and other parts of India. Delhi, which is Capital of India. A large number of tourists are visiting Delhi. Hence there is good demand of visitors, migrants and local people for sex tourism. This has presented an opportunity to perpetrators to supply minor girls trafficked from other areas, we have now started only investigation & rescue activities at Delhi on a moderate scale to begin with. We are in need to establish a protective home at Delhi as the condition and facilities in Government Homes are not good.
