Challenge

Today, there are 5 million children of sex workers in India. The children grow up surrounded by brothels, drugs and prostitution because their mothers work in these areas. At night, some children are drugged and put under the bed while their mothers work the sex trade. The safe houses will rescue trafficked women and children from the dangers of Mumbai's red light districts and provide them with a loving home, food, counseling and education.

Solution

Women and children living in the red light areas have experienced major physical and psychological trauma. The safe houses give them hope for a better life and provide them with shelter, food, clothing, medical care, counseling and a good education. Women who exit the trade are placed in rehabilitation centers, where their basic needs are provided for. The children are also placed in loving environments, where they can grow and play in a safe neighborhood.

Long-Term Impact

This project will give 500 trafficked women and children in Mumbai's red light districts a caring and supportive environment, equipping them with the resources to have successful futures and positively contribute to their community.
