Women's Day Celebration

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.

 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.

  • Hindu festival Diwali and the Hindu New Year is celebrated with great enthusiasm throughout India and in many parts of world where Indians reside. All religions participate in the annual festival of four days. The fourth day being the New Year day, falling on 1st November 2016 was celebrated by visit to temple and visiting relatives and friends to rejoice.  Our all three homes celebrated Diwali profusely by singing, dancing, greeting, and partying. There was happiness everywhere in full environment and in every person’s heart. All wishing well for everyone.

 

  • As the new year dawns, we hope for a progressive, blessed future for everyone. For our girls, Rescue Foundation is their family and all members of Rescue Foundation, the inmates and the staff are members of one family. This relationship provides them a sense of belonging. The festival spreads happiness all around.   Also Volunteers played with the girls & children, gave them presents, and set up Musical show for entertainment, special lunch & decorations, around the floor.

 

Achievements:

 

  • 15 year old West Bengal girl who was brainwashed and trafficked in Mumbai - Perseverance leads to success: A week before 9th January, our Mumbai investigator received a call from west Bengal police seeking help to find a 16 year old girl who was trafficked by some people. The objective here was to find the girl and rescue her from the pimps/ trafficker. West Bengal police gave us the phone number with a possible location via tracing their mobile phones. The investigation went on for 5 days where our investigator was continuously chasing behind the trafficker along with the police. After raiding 3 different places, finally the girl was rescued and the trafficker was caught. The girl is currently in safe custody at Dongri home. Efforts are put in to bring her at Rescue Foundation’s  shelter home.

 

  • Happy Graduation: Our Third batch of Hotel Management course conducted by Youth Career Initiative (YCI) successfully completed their course, a Graduation ceremony was held at Westin Hotel to celebrate this joyous occasion. Our 4 girls received their certificate and also a sense of confidence at achieving and successfully completing the course. Our heart fills with pride for the girls and we wish them luck and blessings ahead. To put an icing on the cake was that the advanced course of bag making was completed.

  

  • On Republic day of India, Rescue foundation had a celebration at the Boisar shelter home. It was a celebration with started with the flag hoisting and paying remembering the founder of our Organisation. Also the girls gave various performances as a tribute to the national flag.

 

  • On 25th December 2016, Deloitte arranged an Impact Day Project for our girls. The workshop focused on health and hygiene as well as training for making greeting cards, chocolates & coloring sessions. All girls were trained to live hygienic and clean life.

 

  • We regularly have jewelry making programme at our centers. We have collaborated with local vendor of synthetic jewelry who provides us with all raw materials. Our girls are trained to assemble jewelry as per their design and the vendor pays daily wages to the girls working on this project. Funds they earn are their rightful income which is earned by hard labor. We give this income made by the girls when they are repatriated. They belong to very poor families so their families welcome income when they reunite with their families. Moreover, the training they received at Rescue Foundation helps them to take up similar jobs in their areas.

 

  • Currency change: as per government has taken decision for changing currency it has affected us indirectly because as they come their belonging is kept in safe as it is. There was need for changing their notes especially the Bangladeshi girls who are going on 26th Nov. 2016, it was very helpful for us to change the notes of 500 and 1000/- that some of our girls had Aadhar cards, along with our caretakers the girls those who had adhar cards stood in a bank line and we got the notes changed. Now girls are able to do their shopping before going to Bangladesh.

 

  • Marshal Arts and Boxing: Ten steps they have learnt for self defense. Our 20 girls have completed one month’s Marshal Arts and boxing course. A volunteer from Germany teaches girls Marshal Arts for self defense. Every day morning 8.30 to 10.30 girls were interestingly attending the sessions.

 

  • Obtaining travel permits from Bangladesh for repatriation of Bangladeshi girls is a very long drawn affair as we have to repeatedly follow up with the High Commission of Bangladesh who obtain travel permits from the Government of Bangladesh. After a lot of struggle we are successful in obtaining travel permits for 14 girls and have repatriated these 14 girls with our staff as escort on 26th November 2016. They departed from Mumbai on 26th November and they were handed over to Bangladesh authorities at Indo-Bangladesh Border on 28th November 2016.

   

  • Psychological test.:  Since we are working as per PITA act 1956 for girls who sexually abused. Most of our minor girls are in traumatic situation. On 6th Nov 2016 altogether seven girls were taken to Thane civil Hospital for psychological test. From the time they are with us we could see some symptoms in them. We identify typical trauma related emotions and symptoms such as fear, silence, anxiety, sadness, grief anger and shame, sleeplessness.

Festival Celebration:

Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated as the birthday of Lord Ganesha. During the Ganesh Chaturthi festival, idols are made in great numbers. 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.

 FESTIVAL  CELEBRATION

  • India celebrates Independence Day on 15th August. The day every year is of immense importance all over India. This was our 70th Independence Day. Entire India celebrated the day with patriotic songs, dance, drama etc. Rescue Foundation also celebrated the day by Flag Hoisting in presence of the Senior Police Inspector from Manor police station and Rescue Foundation staffs. The day was celebrated with tremendous joy by 107 girls of Boisar Complex including 25 girls from Mumbai Home. Volunteers developed skills of our girls who presented the dramas, “Beti ko Apnao” (Accept your daughter) & “Hamara Jivan” (Our Life). And other skits such “Mehangai ki Maar” (Inflation) were also played.

SPEECH BY PRESIDENT: Our president gave a speech on the occasion for motivating girls & talking about how India gained Independence. She also assured girls that they can always approach her for their challenges

 

  • DAHIHANDI: Birth of Lord Krishna on 25th August 2016 is celebrated all over the country as “Dahihandi” celebration. The day was joyfully celebrated by the girls at Rescue Foundation, Boisar. 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:

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.

 

 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.

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.
