Challenge

1 in 3 women live in poverty. In 2012, of the G20 countries, India was ranked the worst place to be a woman. In 2011, an estimated 3 million women were trafficked in India. Indian girls face many additional forms of violence, including child marriage, dowry deaths, female feticide, domestic violence, forced labour and rape. Girls can be the most powerful force for change on the planet, but they can't do it alone, they need us to listen.

Solution

The project will allow 260 sting rescue operations with all necessary aftercare to ensure change is possible for the most at risk women & girls working without protection of any kind in the sex trade. This project will allowing them to rise out of poverty and return to their communities with professions they have chosen and all legal paperwork, a clean bill of health & support for their families. Our girls often go on to become social workers and nurses thriving at helping women just like them

Long-Term Impact

Girls play crucial role in solving the most persistent development problems we face in the world today. Snehalaya 'Home of Love' enable girls to become agents for social change breaking the crippling cycles of poverty in India for themselves. We provide emergency rescue and rehabilitative care for sex workers often minors themselves, & their children. We ensure our beneficiaries safety, shelter, education, medical and legal aid, outreach support, peer mentoring & path finding reintegration.
