Each Girl Deserves a Better Tomorrow.
Each Girl Deserves a Better Tomorrow.

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.

These are usually made out of clay or metal in all sizes; People purchase deities of Lord Ganesha and put them in their homes and worship them for one to ten days. After this the deities are taken out majestically, through the streets and are immersed into a river, sea or a well (especially in Maharashtra). Cultural feasts are also organized with main features like classical music and dance performances, folk dances, poetry recitations and film festivals.

 

As Rescue Foundation rescues many Muslim girls trafficked from Bangladesh, in keeping with our belief of equal treatment for all religions, we celebrated EId festival for all girls at our three homes. Girls of all religions participated in the festival joyfully where the sumptuous Special meal was served with all girls hugging and wishing well for each other. It is very satisfying to know that all girls of any religion happily participate in all religious festivals irrespective of their individual religion. The only region for Rescue Foundation is ‘humanity’.

October was a month of festivals. On 1st October, we celebrated ‘Navratri’, a nine day celebration with devotion and prayers to Goddess Durga, the Goddess of success and destruction of evil. At all the RF shelter Homes the entire environment was full of devotion, truth, peace and comradeship. It also involved dancing and chanting devotional songs. 

 

Achievements:

 

  • Rescue Foundation has conducted Aadhar Card Camp at Boisar shelter Home for the survivors, By the help of UADAI Officers, altogether 48 Survivors from INDIA will be Benefited by this camp, survivors will now have a Complete Identity Documents in the form of AADHAR Card, which will have their Date of Birth, Photo & Address proof, This will enable many survivors to attain many Government Benefits & will establish their Identity when & where needed.
  • All three existing homes of Rescue Foundation have MBBS Doctors employed for checking all girls. Some of the girls are HIV positive. We provide them expert consultation and special medicines. Some of the girls have problems with their vision. We do not have in-house facilities to treat eyes. We therefore arrange eye camps for the girls at all our homes. Recently Rescue Foundation arranged an Eye camp at Mumbai where 91 girls and 3 staff members were treated. Such eye camps are very necessary as we continuously get inflow of new girls rescued from commercial sexual exploitation.  

 

  • On Dt. 12th Sep, 2016 a group of Catholic Church visited our girls. Father from Talasari church, sisters from Mother Teresa Charity convent also had joined them. Our 120 girls participated on the day, they conducted some street plays six groups were done and each group was given one social issues to enact and girls could prepare it within 10-15 minutes and performance, with that girls  enjoyed it thoroughly.

 

  • On 19.10.2016, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT) Group Counseling Session completed. It arranged with the help of our Partner NGO. It has 6 Months duration and 20 girls attended the said session in two batches. On last day certificated were distributed for the girls.

 

  • 22 girls completed basic computer course. Knowledge about use of computers is very necessary for any business or industry, hence many girls are interested in learning computer. We encourage girls to acquire computer skill to enable them to find jobs.

 

  • 15 girls completed English speaking course. Most of all business needs discussion and interaction in English. At least, speaking in English is basically essential.
  • Some girls completed diary & folder making course. Making stationary items helps reduce expenses in office and gives an opportunity to girls to learn crafts.
  • On 25.10.2016, Spreading Smile Group arranged an entertainment programme for girls who consisted of Charley Chaplin show, some entertainment games etc. They also sponsored Lunch for the girls on same day
  • A batch of 10 girls were trained to produced various items like vanity bag, purse, mobile covers etc. which was very much appreciated by girls as they said that they can make a living by producing and marketing them where they live after repatriation.

 

 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. 

 

Recommendations

We shall also appreciate your recommending Rescue Foundation to other donors in U.S.A and abroad to strengthen our fund raising efforts.

We request that you kindly visit us. Your visit will enable you to assess our Progress first hand and visualize the opportunities Rescue Foundation has for achieving an enviable position in the field of anti human trafficking and forced prostitution.

Lord Krishna was very fond of curd & butter. He used to steal curd & butter from the homes of people in the village. To save curd & butter, ladies used to hang it in earthen pots from the ceilings of their house. Lord Krishna in his childhood used to make a pyramid of children, climb over the pyramid and steal curd & butter to distribute amongst children. Rescue Foundation arranged and earthen pot filled with curd, butter and prize at a height so that the girls can form a pyramid and break the earthen pot to celebrate the occasion. They formed two groups and tried to approach the earthen pot. Ultimately one group succeeded. All girls enjoyed the celebration very much.

 

  • Rakshabandhan is an annual festival when sisters tie rakhis (a band of protection) on the hands of their brothers to signify that brothers would protect their sisters throughout lives.  Every year a group of Police Officers from Manor Police Station come to Rescue Foundation home at Boisar where our rescued girls tied rakhis on the hands of the Police Officers. This year also the festival was celebrated happily.

 

 Achievements:

  

  • Girls are enthused to attend training for Tailoring in our home because every location where the families of girls live and from where they were originally trafficked, need tailoring. In June 2016, 11 girls from our protective and rehabilitation home at Kandivali, Mumbai successfully completed training for tailoring.

They focused on common illness occurring in monsoon and provided anti malaria dosages to all the girls.

 

Group session:

  • Since these girls are traumatized and have developed trauma, they need to be counseled intricately. One of the volunteer Ms. Shetty (name changed) (Prof. Psychology  University Pune) comes twice a week to conduct group counseling and individual counseling for the girls. The sessions were very beneficial to the survivors at Pune. She counseled girls and explained to them that they should always view all situations in their life positively. It is necessary to convert the negative attitudes of the survivor girls to positive attitudes in life.

 

  • Our girls were provided with legal awareness about their legal rights at our Boisar home by the Advocate of Rescue Foundation Legal department. The girls received fresh knowledge about their rights. Such knowledge will be very useful to them in their life.

 

  • On 26th August 2016 a programme for Personality Development was conducted in collaboration with Ambubhai Foundation, Boisar and Three E’s training & management group, Borivali for development of personality. On the first day, session began with relaxation of mind & body. This helped release of bad thoughts from the minds of girls and release of bad energies from their body it also trained girls to breathe deeply, to promote positive attitude and concentrate on oneself. More sessions to train girls are planned.

 

 Cross Border Repatriation

  • Repatriation In July, our 29 Bangladeshi girls with three children were successfully repatriated to Bangladesh. On 13th July 2016 all these girls departed from Mumbai with the 9 staff members of Rescue Foundation and 7 Police escorts. They were handed over to the authorities in Bangladesh at the border connecting India with Bangladesh on 15th July 2016 after a long and tedious journey by train.  Out of 29 girls, 16 girls with one child were inmates of our Kandivali shelter and 13 girls with two children were inmates of our Boisar Shelter. This batch included 2 girls whose travel permits were obtained by us after a lot of struggle with the authorities in Bangladesh. These girls have been staying with us for three years because they also had children whose travel permits were refused by the authorities of Bangladesh. We obtained travel permits for their children after a lot of efforts and struggle. With their travel permits we successfully repatriated these two girls along with their children.

Every time I rescue a child or a young girl from prostitution, I die a thousand deaths, reliving what these innocent souls have lost. Helplessly wondering how much could be regained... reaffirming my own conviction that as long as I live I will fight.

We at Rescue Foundation in our own small way are fighting this battle against sex trafficking. We need all your support to create a support system where victims can regain their dignity, their hope in humanity.

Painting Made By Survivor girl

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

 Every time I rescue a child or a young girl from prostitution, I die a thousand deaths, reliving what these innocent souls have lost. Helplessly wondering how much could be regained... reaffirming my own conviction that as long as I live I will fight.

We at Rescue Foundation in our own small way are fighting this battle against sex trafficking. We need all your support to create a support system where victims can regain their dignity, their hope in humanity.

 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.

As Rescue Foundation is South Asia biggest organization for trafficked children/girls and women, working with different countries like mainly with Nepal, Bangladesh. Also saved girls belong to Burma, Russia and Uzbekistan etc.

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.

With best regards,

Triveni Acharya

Basic Education:

  • The NIOS is a national board that administers examinations for Secondary and Senior Secondary examinations of open schools similar to the CBSE and the CISCE to increase literacy and provide education to rural areas. It also offers vocational courses after the high school.

It is an encouraging thing that 4 of our girls are preparing and going to appear for their Grade X examination, which is very important for their higher education. We wish to wish them success in these exams.

 

  • Basically traffikced victims are illetatre or drop outs from school.  To survive in villages and small cities without education tailoring  it is one of the useful profession to carry out everywhere. Many of the times girls operate their small tailoring shops and many girls are working in textile factories and earning for thier families. 16 girls from Mumbai home have started their Advanced Tailoring cource.

 

Republic Day celebrations

  • India became a Sovereign, Democratic and Republic state with the adoption of the Constitution on January 26, 1950.

As always, Rescue Foundation - Boisar staff, beneficiaries and residents, enthusiastically celebrated Republic Day with immense patriotic fervor and pride, along with female cadets from the Police Training Academy (Manor), led by friendly neighborhood Police Inspector M. I. Patil. He motivated the girls by making them realize the importance of being law-abiding citizens. The cultural programs included singing national songs, dance performances by some of the talented Rescue Foundation’s daughters as well as the visitors, and all pledged alliance to the motherland. RF girls had a great time enjoying the sweet & savory snacks. Some girls also photographed themselves among the sunflowers in full bloom and most enjoyed the new recreational park facilities. I was a really Refreshing Rejoicing Republic Day!!

 

Justice for Survivors

  • Rescue Foundation was successful in helping its 2 Bangladeshi survivors get justice against their perpetrators, by securing convictions against the 2 accused. Rescue Foundation helped the police and the prosecutor in producing the witnesses in court, in these cases and also provided legal aid to the survivors for a successful closure of the court cases. Both the accused went sentenced to seven years rigorous imprisonment. This was another victory for the survivors and Rescue Foundation in the battle against crime.
  • On 9th February, Rescue Foundation’s Legal team attended an important meeting with the 54th  Magistrate and 15th  Magistrate Special; ITPA Court,  Mumbai, to discuss the issue of Orders passed at the Shelter Home, in the Home State.
  • RF also had a meeting on 16th February with the Public Prosecutor of Special POCSO Court, Mumbai Sessions, on present ITPA proposed Bill of 2016. The meeting was with regard to the Public Prosecutor’s suggestions about the legal handover the victims to the parents or guardians.

Participative Forums:

  

  • Rescue Foundation’s President, Mrs. Triveni Acharya was one of the invitees who attended a meeting with the Minister of Women and Child Development, India, on 8th February, at New Delhi.

The District Child Protection Officer also participated with key colleagues.

 

  • Rescue Foundation was one of the participants in the Roundtable discussion on ‘Trafficking In Persons’ at the U.S. Consulate General-Mumbai, Mumbai, on 8th February. The discussion focused on the ways in which NGOs can access the justice system to benefit victims of trafficking in persons. The U.S speaker Kate Mogelescu, is a supervising attorney in the Legal Aid Society’s Criminal Defense Practice and also an Adjunct Professor at the City College of New York.  During the discussion, Kate also shared her views on how NGOs can empower the survivors of human trafficking by addressing their legal needs, medical needs, and by providing a path to their safety, economic stability, and independence.

 

  • Rescue Foundation’s Rescue team working the Delhi team had a major achievement in the city of Aligarh in Western UP,  Here, the problem of human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation can be gauged as the Anti Human Trafficking Unit (AHTU) does not even exist. The Senior Police officers are even unaware of rescue operations in brothels. There exists a small but heavily crowded Red Light district in Madar Gate area of Aligarh, in the state of western Uttar Pradesh. After two days of intricate task of convincing the senior police officers, a Rescue operation was finally successfully conducted. 7 victims were rescued, out of which 2 minors and 3 brothel managers were arrested.

Even though this was good news, all girls were still given awareness and counseling about prevention and precautions about HIV. There were some girls who were not interested in getting tested for HIV, however, we managed to at least provide them with HIV related counseling so that they have a positive outlook about HIV.

 

  • Rescue foundation successfully registered 8 of our girls for the Voter’ Card, for the girls to exercise their voting franchise rights. This was carried out at the Mother Teresa hall in Yerwada, Pune. This Voter’s Card is also considered an important identity proof and this will be useful for our girls to have this official identity document.
  • On 31st October we arranged candles making workshop for a few girls, which were conducted by ‘Padmini Group’, where the participating girls made designer candles in the workshop. Also, ‘Padmini Group’ arranged a one day exhibition in Rescue Foundation premises where the candles which were made by our girls were also exhibited.

This was a very enlightening session, where the girls heard and learned something deeper that they could reflect on, to be positive and respectful and it would make a positive impact on their lives in these growing years.
  • Rescue Foundation organized it’s first batch of Sanskar Bharti Rangoli classes for 6 girls, which was conducted by a professional & teacher. This was a 5 day workshop, starting  November. In these classes, the girls learned the basics of making Rangoli art and also learned to make many basic designs, followed by higher level designs. With regular practice and creating newer intricate designs will make the girls proficient in this art, where they will be able to make beautiful rangoli in some festivals, traditional & religious functions, programmes & events. Once an expert, the girls can also earn some money by charging to make certain rangoli at weddings, religious events, festivals, etc. and this can be an additional financial benefit for them.

In this medical camp, 80 girls were provided with Skin & Gynecology check up. Some medicines were provided by the hospital medical team, while other medicines were prescribed and RF purchased and provided these prescribed medicines for the required girl’s treatment. This medical camp was very beneficial for many girls in the diagnosis and treatment aspect and many of our girls benefitted from it.
  • Since embroidery is a stitching art that girls love to learn and then use to make beautiful designs and exhibits, Rescue foundation conducted a new batch of Embroidery classes in the Mumbai home. The classes were held on every Monday to Friday and 20 girls enthusiastically learned the art and practiced the embroidery well. The girls were happy to learn something new in the training programme and develop their art of Embroidery.
  • There was a one day programme organized by  ‘Deloitte’ company, on 27th November. Various activities and programs were done by many girl employees from Deloitte on this day. They helped our girls make beautiful flowers from tissue papers and the girls loved making different types of flowers with tissues. To bring out the girl’s craft skills, they were taught to also make attractive lamps & lanterns, which the girls made and also hung them in different places in the shelter home as decoration.
