Prajwala, India's preeminent anti-sex trafficking organization, is in crisis and needs your help. Following a series of attacks this year on Prajwala staff and facilities, and fearing similar reprisals, the landlord for Prajwala's Economic rehabilitation Center is forcing them to vacate by September, 2015. Without the economic rehabilitation center, critical rehabilitation services for survivors of sex trafficking will be lost. All efforts to find another suitable rented premises has availed no results as most people are uncomfortable having sex trafficked victims in their neighborhood. Further, the fear of attacks by traffickers has discouraged many others to open their doors for this intervention.
Consequently, Prajwala is forced to find some land to relocate these life-giving interventions. As the other interventions are also going through a similar crises the new campus which will become the base camp for all the Prajwala Interventions which will include Economic Rehabilitation Center, An Emergency Shelter and all other interventions of Prajwala including the Rescue

Update #2: The Land is bought for the shelter and economic rehabilitation center! We are thrilled that we found this beautiful property close to the Hyderabad airport. Yesterday, Prajwala completed 'Bhoomi Puja', or a prayer offering to the land before construction starts. Today, the bore well (water from the earth) and the electricity connections were be secured. Both of these are required before the actual construction starts. It is just a race against time now.
And all this we are doing while ensuring that our core work is not disturbed. For example, last week Prajwala rescued 64 survivors, 32 of whom were minors (the press got the numbers wrong). Read more here: http://www.pressreader.com/
Prajwala's rehabilitation shelter 60km from Hyderabad city is rehabilitating 32 of the survivors, the rest of the rescued girls or women have gone to other NGOs rehabilitation sites.
Great things are happening and will continue to happen because of your support. We still have a long way to go to make our goal so please continue to spread the word. Every little bit brings us closer to ending the flesh trade. Thank you so much.
