International Award for Prajwala

It is with great pleasure we would like to inform that Prajwala, an anti trafficking organization based in old city of Hyderabad has won the AGFUND International Prize for Pioneering Development for its efforts to “Combat Trafficking of Women and children through Community Partnership”. The Arab Gulf Programme for United Nations Development Organizations (AGFUND) announced the winning projects of its International Prize for Pioneering Development Projects, 2007. The Prize Committee approved the winning projects in its Ninth Meeting, which was held under the chairmanship of HRH Prince Turki Bin Talal Bin Abdul Aziz, Personal Representative of HRH Prince Talal Bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud, AGFUND President, on Wednesday 5 September 2007, at AGFUND premises in Riyadh.

Prajwala is a pioneering anti-trafficking organization based in the old city of Hyderabad. In the last 11 years Prajwala has rescued hundreds of women and children from all over India from prostitution and successfully rehabilitated them. It has been also successful in preventing over 5000 children from entering prostitution through its education program. As a leading advocacy organization Prajwala is relentlessly pushing for new policies for the welfare of trafficked victims and has been instrumental in bringing out quite a few welfare measures for the benefit of victims of sex trafficking both in the state of Andhra Pradesh and also nationally.

Prajwala wishes to thank all its friends, supporters and well wishers for their unconditional support in the Prajwala mission
