Challenge

Children of women in sex work grow up in an environment of violence, criminality and discrimination. They experience the sexuell exploitation and the abuse of their mothers and themselves day by day. Most of them live in slums and don't go to school. Often, they are left behind as orphans and start begging to survive on the street. But even if their mothers are still alive they are not able to provide a safe life to their children and to keep them away from sex work.

Solution

The project offers a home to sex workers' daughters. In CMM's orphanage, they have a place to live, play and sleep, they get healthy nutrition, medical and psychological care and are sent to school. That way they can escape from the dangerous life that their mothers cannot break out of. Presently, CMM takes care of 30 children, but the number of girls who wait for a way out of the risk of forced prostitution is far higher. With more financial ressources, the orphanage could expand its capacity.

Long-Term Impact

CMM's work is affecting more than 500 children and 3000 women in forced prostitution every year. The organisation encourages them to give up sex work and to become part of the organisation's team to fight forced sex work, human trafficking and HIV/AIDS. CMM is a role model for India. The organisation was founded by a former sex worker. It proves that those with a difficult background can have a great impact on the society.
