Way Forward After The Rescue is a project for the girls who have completed their Rehabilitation Period at Rescue Foundation Mumbai and continue to either live on the premisis of the home or in Mumbai to pursue their studies, training, job opportunities.
Over the years many of our Adult Girls especially in Mumbai have taken the opportunity to be partially supported by the Organization and venture out to seek a good furutre for themselves in the city than just go back home. At times some of our girls have been so young at the time of rescue they dont remember their home location, or there is no one to go back too. It is at this time the girl decides to take her future decisions with counselling and a little support from Rescue Foundation
Its a proud moment for us to see our girls equipped and raring to go places.
Past 2 years during the lockdown it was a difficult period for all of us, schools colleges were shut down, very few opportunities for training and job placements.
For past few months the Covid Resctrictions were relaxed and few of our girls started their schools and colleges. Few have got jobs and have moved out of Rescue Foundation and found a rented place together.
We conitnue to support them either with counselling, linking them to jobs, interim grocercies, food, travel expenses
Some of these girls continue to live on the premises of the Home as they trainers for the younger girls for Tailoring, Yoga, Basic Computers, Zumba, Martial Arts.
Objective 1 : Rescue of Women & Girls who are victims of Human Trafficking or Child Sexual Abuse.
Objective 2 : To Rehabilitate the rescued persons in our Shelter Homes
Objective 3 : To Restore, Repatriate the Women and Girls after their official custody either to their families or support them to reintegrate in mainstream community

Vocatonal Training such as Tailoring, Basic Computers, Yoga, Zumba, Literacy, Making Products such as bags, display items.are taken up for all the girls as part of Rehabilitation Program. Our Major girls are mostly involved as Trainers for these sessions.
In this quarter the Trainers learned a new skill of macabre and have been so good that they have trained a group of almost 20 other girls to make household products which can be sold.
Art and Craft Sessions continue to teach them to make jewellery, handicrafts, needlework, patchwork, quiting etc
As part of Literacy we conduct basic English and Hindi Classes to enable girls who are not able to go back to school to read and write.
Basic Computers is taught to some of the girls who are schooling to support them with their school reseach or know the use of Computers
Zumba / Yoga / Meditation is a daily exercise to keep good health and peace of mind for the girls. They love to dance and meditate.
Tailoring Skills is another huge success with all the girls. Many have learnt to sew their own clothing, few utilitiy items too.

Besides these training, we have several sessions, camps on Health, Career Counselling, Exposure Trips to build capacities and encourage the girls to pursue their dreams. We are pleased to announce most of them did well in the school and college examinations, we are awaiting the results.
As the lockdown eases many of them have started going out to schools, colleges and their jobs. We would appreciate assistance in supporting them for their travel, school, college, training fees or some pocket money.
We look forward to supporting more of our girls with their education, training and pursuing job opportunities.
