Rescue foundation was established to accelerate the progress on meeting needs of victims of human trafficking for sexual exploitation. During rehabilitation we stand behind survivors enabling equal participation in all aspects of their lives. Focusing on priority areas enhancing knowledge, providing formal and informal education, helping them to upgrade their health, strength to face the world with legal aid program, self-realization, counseling to build a new confidence and economically sustaining them through vocational training and providing jobs.
Our three protective homes are actually homes for them where they grow, achieve capacities and strength to cope and face the world. We not only help them to learn how to face and fight under critical circumstances but also how to nurture own self and live in harmony hence after.
