Gram Niyojan Kendra (GNK) Rajasthan

A crusade against tradition based trafficking and prostitution.

In Bharatpur, Rajasthan, GNK works to break generational prostitution disguised as tradition. Fathers and brothers of the Bhedia tribe push their girls into prostitution at puberty. This sordid trade is fuelled by poverty. GNK is helping to break the vicious cycle through education. After decades in rented premises, their dedicated school opened its doors in June 2012. In addition to formal education, they offer vocational skills training for boys and girls to give them alternative careers. They are working for a total change in the mindset of fathers, brothers, mothers, daughters, in fact of the entire community.
Through programmes sponsored by the LILY Foundation, we are helping GNK to develop enterprises and generate employment.

”I am so glad that now there are so many options to earn money through education and training. The old ways can remain in the past and our girls can earn a different living. I am glad they don’t have to go through what I did to put food in my stomach.”

Prajwala trains girls rescued from sex trafficking as carpenters, printers, masons, security guards, cab drivers, etc. giving each one of them a chance to excel in their chosen field, gain confidence, dignity, and hope for the future.

LILY's support means that Prajwala can provide shelter, care and protection for 120 children in Astha Niwas, a home for rescued child victims, for the next three years. The children are transported to school every day in the bus provided by LILY's funding.

Truthfully, I do not know what the future will hold for these women and children. But I do know what their present would be, and for me it's one day at a time right now. And my effort is to see that their smiles are restored every day, and that I can sustain their smile.To have that supported by someone like you who believes so passionately is a blessing indeed.

Anyay Rahit Zindagi (ARZ) Goa

Pioneering ways to integrate survivors back into society

ARZ has been combating trafficking in Goa for the past eleven years. Their work covers the entire spectrum from awareness, rescue, rehabilitation, protection, health, repatriation, after care, lobbying and prosecution of traffickers.

Odanadi, Mysore

Providing alternative means of livelihood for the survivors

Odanadi is an anti-trafficking organization based in Mysore, South India, working for the rescue, rehabilitation and reintegration of trafficked women and children. It was founded over twenty years ago by two journalists, Stanly and Parashuram. Whilst researching a story on the streets of Mysore, a chance meeting with a prostitute named Radhamma changed their lives forever. She challenged them to do something more than just write about the lives of the most marginalised and exploited women. The two quit journalism and founded Odanadi. They have rescued over 2,000 men, women and children through 57 raids into brothels. They have also brought more than 137 traffickers to justice. At the same time, they have educated 20,000 villagers about the dangers of trafficking.

With LILY sponsorship, Odanadi could develop sustainable enterprise for 40 women rescued from trafficking, giving them a stable income and making them independent

They are vulnerable to all forms of depravity, violence and exploitation, and daughters are forced to follow their mothers example, whilst boys learn to pimp their own mothers and sisters. The Prerana project has worked there 1986 and pioneered several path-breaking interventions to prevent this second generation trafficking. They run shelter homes, anti-trafficking and night care centres that provide children a safe environment. They were the first organisation in the world that implemented a comprehensive education programme in a red light district that continues even today.
