Interim Narrative Report II 2016

Group session called TFCBT.
Group session called TFCBT.

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,
