Care & Protection
Every child deserves a better tomorrow, Togethor Lets make it happen.
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,

- 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.
- Our legal department has been working with due diligence to obtain conviction of perpetrators who have forced girls to undergo inhuman turmoil in life. In 2 cases, conviction was obtained for the perpetrators for 4 years.
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.
