Summary

This project will build self-confidence among girls to express themselves, learn about their rights and gain an education through which they can prevent their own sexual exploitation and sex trafficking. This will enable them to begin to access other government services and entitlements like low cost food, housing, and health care for themselves and their families. They can be leaders for social, economic, and political change in their community.

Challenge

The aim of this project is to empower women and girls from nomadic and semi-nomadic groups in Delhi, which include certain caste communities that suffer from inter-generational prostitution, to increase their choices and bring them out of prostitution or the risk of being prostituted. The beneficiaries are prostituted and at-risk women and girls from marginalized sections of society - particularly from the DNT communities in Dharampura in Najafgarh, a population that is poor.

Solution

Our activities will help to prevent inter-generational prostitution in this community by keeping girls enrolled in school. Activities like: Creating a monitoring mechanism in collaboration with the school and the local Child Welfare Committee so that girls do not drop out of school, developing an Individual Child Care Plan for every girl vulnerable to trafficking in Najafgarh, Generating awareness and motivating parents (especially the prostituted women) of red light areas in Najafgarh.

Long-Term Impact

At the primary school at Najafgarh, where we hope to implement this project, 750 girls enrolled in the school will directly benefit from this project. This project will not only address the need for every child to have the right to education but will attempt to dismantle the cycle of prostitution and trafficking through education. By working with the schools and the community, and by involving them in this movement towards empowering the 'last girl' (the most marginalised girl in any situation).
