Six hundred survivors of sex trafficking are being forced to relocate because of the construction of a new mall in Hyderabad. They have three months to buy land to build a new shelter.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
This August, 600 survivors of sex trafficking will be forced to relocate because of the construction of a new mall in Hyderabad. Funding is urgently needed to secure land to build a new shelter for the women. Child victims of trafficking for commercial sexual exploitation are worst hit with the trauma of sexual abuse and the HIV/AIDS disease. They are exposed to violence and adult experiences very early in life and are victims of social stigma and discrimination.
How will this project solve this problem?
As the organization struggles to find a solution, securing land in a suitable location is difficult. The current shelter is located in the heart of the city giving women easy access to education and jobs.
Potential Long Term Impact
The organization has successfully found 4 acres of land close to the city of Hyderabad, enabling these women to keep their jobs. A new shelter will be built there and will serve as a safe haven for the survivors who seldom find acceptance in society.
