Break the Intergenerational Cycle of Prostitution
  • Crisis: Globally, 70% victims of trafficking are women/girls. India is home to over 3 million of the estimated 14 million sex workers worldwide. Most victims enter the trade due to stark economic conditions, no financial means or abusive marriages. AAWC is an anti-trafficking organization.
  • Programs: 1) Umeed (women >18 years old): Overall empowerment of sex-workers through health camps and referrals, nutritional support, adult and financial literacy, skill development, shelter home placement, access to Govt. schemes, etc. 2) Udaan (for their daughters aged 5-18 years): Empower them to pursue education through admission to schools, mentor-mentee programs, after-school tuitions, nutritious meals, therapy, counseling and shelter home services/rehabilitation. 3) Umang (for their toddlers aged 2.5-5 years): Develop physical, cognitive, emotional and social skills through kindergarten classes, e-learning, providing nutritious meals, boarding home placement and medical referrals.
  • Outcome: So far, AAWC has successfully worked with over 4,000 women and children. None of the Udaan girls have entered prostitution and in fact, become independent and successful. Some have even helped their mothers quit prostitution and supported their siblings' education expenses.
