Prajwala India

Volunteer Opportunities: Yes


One of the oldest red light areas of Hyderabad city was evacuated in 1996. Thousands of women in prostitution were suddenly uprooted and displaced. This forced them to look at their lives very closely and think about the insecure status of their children. The plea of the mothers for a dignified future for their children made Brother Jose Vetticatil and Dr. Sunitha Krishnan come together and initiate an intervention (Prajwala) for prevention through education.The philosophy of Prajwala India evolved based on the needs of women and children who are victims of trafficking. Prajwala is an anti-trafficking organization preventing women and children from entering prostitution, which is the worst form of sexual slavery.
