Description

We are a grassroots Indian organization working to empower girls and women to resist and end sex trafficking. Since 2002, we have formed 150 self-empowerment groups in brothels, red light districts, slums and villages. We have found a community-centered solution that transforms the most marginalized girls and women into leaders. By 2016, we plan to scale our model to link 500,000 women to a nation–wide support network and to empower 100,000 girls with the access to educational opportunities. Apne Aap(Hindi for “self-help”) works to empower the women and children of India’s red-light districts to escape sex trafficking. By providing them with education, healthcare and job skills, we are breaking the cycle of poverty and discrimination that forces women into prostitution. We recognize that buying sex is a societal problem, and work with governments worldwide to end the stigmatization of those trapped in prostitution and criminalize those who exploit them. We connect survivors’ voices directly to the political and legislative process and advocate for policy that will enable every woman to be free. We educate the public about the systemic realities of human trafficking. We advocate for the need to stem the demand side of sex trafficking, because men must actively participate in creating a future where no woman or girl is bought or sold Objectives:- •To support community-based initiatives of those trapped by the sex-industry. • Mitigate the circumstances of those caught in prostitution. • Develop leadership among the affected to end sex-trafficking • Prevent inter-generational prostitution. • Build linkages between grassroots activism and policy makers on issues related to ending-sex-trafficking. • Create awareness in society regarding discrimination against women and girls, particularly on issues related to sex-trafficking, prostitution, sex, sexuality and violence against women and girls end the stigmatization of those trapped in prostitution and criminalize those who exploit them.
