We know that the process of "rescuing" women and children from India's red-light districts can seem complex. That's why we've put together a list to help you better understand the challenges and nuances involved in the rescue and rehabilitation process. By educating ourselves on this issue, we can work together towards a brighter future for these vulnerable girls.
Red-light districts in India are areas where prostitution is rampant and often associated with human trafficking. Some of the most notable red-light districts in India include Kamathipura in Mumbai, G.B. Road in Delhi, Sonagachi in Kolkata, and Budhwar Peth in Pune. These areas are notorious hotspots for human trafficking and are often used as transit points for victims who are being trafficked or forced into prostitution.

Your generosity helps to rescue these children from the cycle of poverty and exploitation, ensuring they don't have to resort to the sex trade for survival. Your support empowers them with the resources, tools, and skills they need to build a successful future. Thank you for making a difference in their lives.
Ayasha's life has been full of hardships and struggles. Growing up in red light area with an abusive father, her childhood was marked by trauma and instability. Her mother, Sabina, worked tirelessly to provide for her family, but had to resort to sex work to make ends meet. With a desperation to offer her daughter a better future, Sabina brought Ayasha to live at one of our girl's Hostel.
At first, the adjustment wasn't easy for Ayasha. It was the first time she'd ever been away from her mother, so emotions ran high. She often found herself at odds with other kids in the hostel and struggled to find where she fit. But with time, support and guidance from dedicated staff members, Ayasha started to bloom. She adapted well to new habits and responsibilities while excelling academically with her passion for drawing and painting evident through her artworks.
Ayasha dreams of becoming a police inspector - an aspiration that is an ode to both her courage and perseverance. Ayasha's journey is a reminder of how powerful the human spirit can be when there is care and support behind it.
Kaveri's story is one full of courage and inspiring hope. Despite being born into hardship, she has become an outstanding student with a bright future ahead of her. Growing up in Bhiwandi red light area with her sick mother and two younger brothers, the absence of her father left them to fend for themselves. However, Revathi - Kaveri's mother - was determined to give her daughter a chance at success, and so she sought admission for Kaveri at one of our safe houses.
The transition was difficult for the shy, soft-spoken Kaveri who had never been away from family before. But with help and encouragement from the staff and other girls, Kaveri gradually blossomed into a compassionate young woman who valued sharing and caring for others above all else. In addition to this, she proved to be a keen learner, adept in English despite no prior educational background, becoming the best performer in class!
Kaveri's accomplishments are a testament not only to her hard work but also to the unwavering support offered by your donations. Looking forward towards the future, new opportunities now await Kaveri as well as her mother Revathi - eager to reintegrate into society and start anew - both destined for greater success.
