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 >18yrs 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 5-18yrs): Empower them to pursue education through admission to schools, mentor-mentee programs, after-school tuitions, nutritious meals, therapy, counselling and shelter home services/rehabilitation. 3) Umang (for their toddlers aged 2.5-5yrs): Develop physical, cognitive, emotional and social skills through kindergarten classes, e-learning, nutritious meals, boarding home placement and medical referrals.
  • Outcome: Over the years, AAWC has successfully worked with over 3,065 women and children. The Udaan program has seen a 100% success rate, with none of the Udaan girls entering prostitution. Instead, they have become independent, helped their mothers quit prostitution, and supported the education expenses of their siblings.
