This project provides sustainable employment and holistic care for women survivors of trafficking and prostitution in India. 6 women are currently employed through the efforts of this project and we hope to expand our reach and be able to hire more women by the end of the year. These women are training to make fair trade products that will be sold in various parts of the world.
Many survivors of trafficking and prostitution fall back into this cycle of having to sell their bodies for income due to not being able to find sustainable employment. Most employers will not hire someone with such a background, leaving them trapped in this cycle and feeling hopeless.
This project provides sustainable employment and holistic care for those who are survivors of trafficking and prostitution. Lack of sustainable income and access to resources for proper healing keep women trapped in this industry. This project will address the two major reasons why individuals cannot escape from this horrendous industry. Survivors will make products for a fair wage and have access to a life-giving community, healthy work environment and resources that promote healing.
The long-term effects of this project will impact generations of those who are rescued and given the opportunity for a new way of life. Potentially a sex worker's children will grow up in this industry and begin working at a young age. The same goes for their children's children and so on. This project seeks to break the cycle of injustice towards those who are vulnerable to being enslaved in the sex industry of Mumbai.
