Charvi's childhood was a far cry from the innocent memories many of us hold dear. At just five years old, she had already seen and experienced more darkness than most of us encounter in a lifetime.  

Growing up in the red-light districts of India with a mother who was forced to work there and an abusive alcoholic for a father, Charvi's world was one of heartache and fear. As her mother tried to provide for her family, Charvi was often tied up at night, to keep Charvi from wandering off.  

Knowing what Charvi's future would hold if she stayed in the red-light district, Charvi's mother brought her to live at our safe house.  

Because of this selfless decision, Charvi has thrived in a loving and nurturing environment. She has worked hard at her schooling, learned how to cook and take care of herself.   

Growing up in the red-light districts is a harsh reality for many children, but Charvi and children like her are able to find hope and a better future thanks to your generosity and funding. With your help, children are escaping environments that would easily perpetuated the vicious cycle of abuse and trauma.  

Charvi is blossoming into a young woman with great potential. Today, she is pursuing her dreams of becoming a physical therapist, filled with a sense of gratitude towards you and all those who helped her achieve a brighter future.  

She recognizes that her life could have easily gone down a very different path had it not been for you, and she cherishes the safety and security provided to her during such a crucial time in her life.  

 The world needs more people like you - those who are willing to invest in the lives of others.

Ganga's story is a transformation from heartbreak to hope. Trafficked into the sex trade as a minor, she endured years of exploitation and abuse as she shuffled between different red-light areas searching for stability. Through your generous gifts, Ganga was given the opportunity to learn at one of our tailoring schools where she gained essential skills to help her get a job but also received the mental health care and support she desperately needed. By learning to tailor, Ganga gained a newfound sense of independence and purpose. 

Thanks to your generosity, Ganga's life has taken a positive turn. Your support has helped her break free from the horrors of human trafficking and paved the way for hope and a brighter future.  

Ganga's journey could have ended in despair and darkness. Your gifts helped offer Ganga a chance to achieve a meaningful life. You have played a vital role in helping her overcome the horrible effects of human trafficking and given her a chance to rise above her circumstances.  

When you invest in someone's future, the impact is immeasurable. Ganga's life is a shining example of this truth. Today, she completed her vocational training and was able to secure a job that not only pays her bills but gives her the pride that comes with a steady income. Today, she is working at a bag manufacturing and export company, where she has found stability and financial security. Not only has she left behind the sex trade, but she has also been able to provide a safe and loving home for her child.  What you have accomplished in Ganga's life can be done for others that are waiting for your help. Thank you for being a part of this amazing transformation!

­ ­­Thank you for rescuing women and children from India’s red-light district!  A woman named Soni felt her only way to provide for her children was to work in the red-light district until YOU provided a way out for her through your generous donation. 

 Soni lost her husband in an accident when she was pregnant with her second child.  This left Soni felt completely helpless with a financial burden she didn’t know how to pay.  She tried working as a maid but it was not enough so a friend introduced her to the sex trade.  Seeing no other way to provide for her children, she worked in the red-light district for 9 years. 

 Because of your gift, you were able to give Soni education, care and training that would change her life from sex worker to restaurant owner.  Now, equipped with the necessary skills, Soni moved away with her kids and opened her own roadside food joint.  Her business is successful and Soni and her family are thriving!  Soni is grateful to you for equipping her with the necessary skills to begin a new life with dignity. 

 Thank you for having a heart for those who are hopeless.  Together we can make a difference in families like Soni’s all over India!

Dear Friend,

Thank you for helping provide women and children rescue from India’s red-light districts. Your gift is transforming lives of women and children that were trapped in a life of abuse. 

There are many young girls living in the red-light districts because their mothers are a part of the sex trade. As the young girls get older, it is extremely dangerous for them to be in this environment, and they often end up in the sex trade themselves. 

Khushi is a young girl that we were able to rescue from the red-light district before she was a participant in the sex trade. When Khushi was rescued, she was a quiet, shy girl who had lived in an unsafe environment her whole life. 

With the permission of her mother, Khushi was rescued from the red-light district and brought into the safe home. She was extremely shy and fearful of everyone because of her trauma from her past. Khushi also did not know how to write and had no educational foundation.

Through counseling, love, and care, Khushi started to feel safe and come out of her shell. She now works hard at school and her education is continuing to progress. Khushi has many friends and loves learning! 

Khushi is thriving now because of the counseling, education, and safety she received. Khushi would still be living in the red-light district, uneducated and hopeless, if it weren’t for you. When we work together, we can change lives!

P.S. You can help other children that are still trapped in the red-light district! The safe house provides the healing and education necessary for these children to succeed in the future, outside of the red-light district. You are the key to changing lives!

Dear Friend,

Thank you for your help in providing children and women with a life of safety away from India's red-light districts. Your gift is making a tremendous difference in the lives of women and children trapped in the life of a sexual slave.

When we help a girl child escape, with permission of her mother, we ask that they never go back to the Red Light District, too dangerous. As a mother they want them close by their side, but once they are 7 or 8 it is very risky. Priyanka* is one such child.

Priyanka lives in an urban slum surrounded by poverty; her home is in the Red Light District. Families live in small cinderblock and sheet metal homes surrounded by filth and sexual abuse. It is a very unhealthy environment for anyone, and especially a child, but sadly this is Priyanka’s home.

Priyanka was doing poorly in school when she came to our tuition center. But with an illiterate mother and chaotic home life, she has no chance to excel in system designed for those with an educated family and wealth. Right outside the Red Light District, India Partners maintains a Learning Centre. Here children are able to come before and after school, they receive a meal and are helped with their homework (tuitions).

Priyanka is a needy 7-year old girl; she now has a chance to succeed. She will be able to stay in school and get an education because of people like you. When we work together we can change lives even in the most difficult places.


India Partners

P.S. To help more children and women in Mumbai's red light districts, you can give a gift today! You will be changing their lives forever by providing them educational opportunities they would otherwise not have. Encourage your friends and coworkers to join you. Take a moment and change the life of a young girl like Priyanka.
