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.

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.
  • Training was provided to the Public Prosecutors in Kolhapur on The Immoral Traffic (Prevention) Act, The Protection Of Children from Sexual Offences Act and other relevant provisions of the Indian Penal Code. Case laws were also discussed with the Public Prosecutors.

 

 

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.
  • International Women's Day on 8th March was celebrated in a big way @ all RF locations. The program in RF-Boisar complex was sponsored by Galaxy Surfactants Ltd. Senior Managers enjoyed the singing, dancing and fun-filled games with RF daughters. All girls received a lovely useful toiletries kit-bag. 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.

 

 

 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.

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.

  •  Saving is Income not spent, or deferred consumption. Saving also involves reducing expenditures, such as recurring costs. The act of saving corresponds to nominal preservation of money for future use. The habit of saving is very beneficial in life. Whatever the income, one must save some amount for the future. Girls rescued by us must have bright future. For having better future, they must cultivate habit of savings. For this reason, we opened savings bank accounts for five girls by ensuring that they get government identity like Aadhar cards.
  • Besides good management of income, girls must cultivate good practices for living progressive lives. Mr. Bhatt, a renowned writer gave a discourse to girls at Mumbai Home about ways and means of developing good practices for progressive life.

Dear Supporters & Well-Wishers,

Tremendous efforts lead to favorable outcomes when we deal with any situation in an humanitarian way. In 20 years of life I have seen many ups and downs with Rescue Foundation but every time you were there to hold my hand. Since years we are together observing, sharing girl’s joy, and happiness.  

Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable. Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals. Every great dream begins with a dreamer. We have within us the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.

Rescue Foundation as an organization is a home of transformation of many lives. Girls changed their lives and moved towards happiness due to your admiring support.

Earnest thanks to you for supporting us. Together we have formed solitude to achieve Human Rights. Nevertheless encountering day-to-day challenges were not easy as we had to put our lives in danger to achieve the goal. At the same time, your valued contribution has made achievement of goal possible. Seeing smile and love on the faces of these tormented girls, all of us feel that our efforts have been rewarded well.

Our combined efforts of providing more resources and enlarging our endeavors in various different parts of our huge country shall make it possible for more girls to regain their dignity.

Yes we want to see smile, happiness, satisfaction and total change in lives of these unfortunate girls and children. For achieving such result we shall work in collective and effective way.

On one hand you will develop ways and means of raising resources by being creative in your approach and on the other hand we shall 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

President, Rescue Foundation

 

Background

Our mission is to reinstate human rights to victims of human trafficking, trafficked from Bangladesh, Nepal and India who are sexually abused and are sold for forced prostitution.

Rescue Foundation, as the name suggests specializes in rescuing the unfortunate victims from the clutches of the anti-social elements in and around the country. We realized that merely rescuing them does not guarantee their reintegration in society. Our experienced investigators successfully manage to conduct in-brothel counseling to explain the benefits of enjoying human rights and obtain their consent to be rescued.  But after rescue their trauma overburdens them and their negativity has to be converted to positive attitude so that they can sustain their lives with good health and reintegrate well in respectable society.

Providing necessary facilities, training & medical consultation to about 700 girls becomes a huge task for our organization. We carry out our duties with the help of 87 determinant and dedicated staff members spread over our three protective and rehabilitation homes and one office at Delhi for investigation and rescue. 

The expertise gained in providing new lives to the young female generation has provided severe encouragement to us for extending our services to other cities like Delhi which have become attractive destinations for trafficking and forced prostitution.

The root of the success of Rescue Foundation is the combination of our grass root work and your support. Continuation of our combined efforts will surely go a long way towards the anti-trafficking measures needed by this region.

For the Safe Custody rehabilitation, we have established three protective homes and an office as under:

  • Mumbai for 100 girls.
  • Pune for 50 girls.
  • An office at Delhi for Investigation,  Rescue, Counseling & Repatriation.
  • Thane (Boisar complex) for 150 girls established on 50 acre land consisting of facilities like Recovery Carte Center for HIV positive girls, training centre, biogas & vermicompost production units and agriculture.

 Mission: To prevent and protect children and young adults from trafficking for sexual exploitation at various destination locations in India. 

 Aims & Objectives

  •  To investigate and rescue by decreasing the period of exploitation, torture and violence on children and young girls being trafficked into sex trade in Maharashtra;
  • To ensure quality post rescue care and support services to the victims of sex trafficking through institutional care;
  • To provide safe and protective environment to the girls in order to make them confident and enabling to seek justice in the court of law;
  • Proper and quick prosecution and conviction of various factors involved in the trafficking and exploitation of the child/ girl.
  • Prepare the girls to move from being a victim to a survivor by becoming socially, psychologically and economically self- sufficient and enabling;
  • Appropriate reintegration and rehabilitation of the rescued survivor keeping both the best interests of the girl as well as her right to participation in decisions that impacts her life.

The balance was contributed from our reserve funds. The land is surveyed and registered on R.F Name; we shall start the construction of our fourth protective and rehabilitation home at Delhi. This is a great respite as many trafficked girls are awaiting rescue and rehabilitation at Delhi.

  • Members from Rotaract Club of Mumbai Shivaji Park visited The Rescue Foundation Rehabilitation Center Boisar.

They spent the entire Sunday with 156 victims, organized recreational activities such as a magic show and a musical performance for the survivors and provided refreshments. The best part was that the victims welcomed it whole-heartedly and also joined in the singing and dancing.

  • Rescue Foundation has conducted AAdhar Card Camp at all three shelter Homes for the survivors, By the help of UADAI Officers, altogether 68 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 & Adress proof, This will enable many survivors to attain many Government Benefits & will eastiblish their Identity when & where needed.

 

  •    Mother's Day is a modern celebration honoring one's own mother, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society.

Especially on 10th May (Mothers Day) they remember her lovingly, look forward to meet her, share their feelings with her, feel secure and loving with her and eventually be with her.

“In my mother’s absence,” they say, “Triveni Acharya is our real mother, more than a mother as she not only protects us, feeds us, consoles us, entertains us, wipes our tears but also loves us dearly. We have been able to find true path in our lives because of her. On this Mother’s day, we all bestow our true love and affection on mummy Triveni and wish always to be blessed by her.

  • Education:

One of our survivor girl, Shenaz (Name Changed) was admitted in our home, she was very much encouraged to study further by attending our basic education classes in her childhood. We admitted her in the nearby school to receive formal education. She studied in the school and received secondary education. In the end she passed standard 12th examination with 62% of Marks.  She is on the way to qualify for higher studies and become a chartered accountant. Thus the basic education provided by us encourages girls to qualify for graduation and subsequent sustenance.

  • Repatriation

Ultimate wish of any human is re-integration with family.  We are Thanking to all well-wishers, who had been apart to re-integrate these innocent girls to bring them back in our normal society, In May 2015, 14 Bengali girls & in June,  76 Bangladeshi girls had completed their process of rehabilitation and were happily repatriated to their homes.

Project Description

Rescue, Rehabilitation and Repatriation of victim girls/women/children of Human Trafficking who are sold for forced prostitution.

Regular Activities

Investigation and Identification:

  • We investigate and verify the identity & location of a particular missing complaint or investigation reports regarding existence of minor girls in a particular brothel, complain register by networking NGOs in India (West Bengal and Hyderabad), Nepal and Bangladesh.
  • At the time of in-brothel counseling, one particular girl is identified or selected.
  • At the time of rescue, we end up rescuing numerous girls as one particular girl counseled by us, in turn counsels her other friends in the brothel who become very willing to be rescued.
  • Investigation is a very risky operation as if the investigator is recognized by the brothel keeper as a person associated with us, he gets mercilessly beaten up.
  • Investigation is also a very lengthy operation as the investigator cannot visit the brothel frequently. Moreover he needs many visits to conduct in brothel counseling in order to gain trust of the victim.

Rescue:

  • We conduct rescue raids accompanied by Police. This is a very risky operation.
  • Many times due to leakage of information, mostly minor girls are hidden by the brothel keepers in the hidden cells. These cells are built into the walls and ceilings of the brothels. We locate such cells and liberate the girls hidden in the cells.
  • After rescue, the rescued girls are produced in the court within 24 hours by the police.
  • The court decides which girls to be handed over to Rescue Foundation for safe custody and rehabilitation.

Rehabilitation:

Health care:

  • Once the girls are admitted to our Protective Home, an employed Doctor checks all the girls and treats them for the illness. Almost all are suffering from one disease or the other. They are then taken to a nearby hospital & laboratory for age verification and advanced consultancy & check-ups of blood, urine etc. if necessary.
  • All the necessary medicines and consultations are given free of cost.
  • Basic treatment for early stage HIV/AIDS is given by us but any advanced treatment is not possible as the cost of consultancy and medication is prohibitively expensive.
  • We also are in the process of establishing a Recovery Care Centre for HIV girls at Boisar, 85 kms away from Mumbai for about 25 to 30 HIV patients.

Legal aid:

  • We file complaints in court of law and produce them as witnesses. Our employed lawyer assisted by probation officers manages the legal Issues.
  • We have been successful in obtaining convictions for brothel keepers and traffickers involving jail sentence for seven years.
  • Mock Trials are conducted to train the girls for court procedures and manners.

Vocational training:

  • Vocational Training is very important segment of rehabilitation. Besides the basic education, it includes training for Computer operating, Tailoring, Yoga, Crafts, Cooking, Clay making, and Beautician etc.
  • We continuously train the girls for several profit making courses so that they can sustain themselves and support their families throughout life after they are repatriated.

Psycho-social training:

  • As these girls have undergone inhuman treatment in brothels to force them to prostitute and lose all their humans rights, they are so traumatized that they lose faith in mankind. Therefore they need psycho-social counseling by patient counselors in every stage in life.

Repatriation:

  • Mainly after the legal procedures are over we contact either their families or the respective NGO situated in the vicinity of their homes and repatriate the girls accompanied by our two staff members to either their homes or to source NGO. While repatriating we provide them with the day-to-day necessities of life so that they are not inconvenienced during the journey and immediately on reaching the destination.
  • Girls that cannot be repatriated due to one reason or other are either absorbed by us or by source NGO or. We find suitable jobs for them in Mumbai.

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.
