Summary

It is an urgent appeal to save two girls in Rajasthan, India, from commercial sex work. Parents of Kiran and Pooja (name changed) have lost all means of livelihood during the pandemic and are now sending their daughters to Mumbai to practice the age-old custom of sex work to generate income for the family. Kiran and Pooja have aspirations to build their career. The fundraiser will support their education for two years in a premier education and boarding school and keep them safe from traffickers

Challenge

COVID-19 has effectively pushed back several years of development work, making more and more families vulnerable. The lesser sources of income, force the families to pull out their children from schools and involve them in paid work. While the situation is the same across villages around the country, it is slightly more complex for girls from the Nat community in Rajasthan where they are forced into the sex trade as soon as they hit puberty. The pandemic has made the situation even direr.

Solution

iPartner India has so far been able to prevent more than 50 girls from being trafficked by sending them to a premier education and boarding facility where their safety was assured, with the consent of the parents. The pandemic has made families more vulnerable due to a lack of income. Two more young girls are now on the verge of being sent for commercial sex work in Mumbai. Your support will save these two girls to continue their education and build careers of their choice in a safe space.

Long-Term Impact

Kiran is in grade 9 and wants to become a doctor. She wants girls in her village to have access to better healthcare facilities. Pooja is in grade 11 and has always been ambitious about her future. She wants to be a teacher and does not want to survive the fate of her aunts who are in Mumbai in the sex trade. Pooja and Kiran can transform their lives, build their career and achieve their potential through your support and would break the vicious cycle of intergenerational forced sex work.
