Efforts for Saving Sex Trafficking Victims

Saving Sex Trafficking Victims – Internal human trafficking accounts for 90% of the crime in India, with lower caste members being the most frequently victimized group. The US State Department report on India just made this truth known.

Today, India is regarded as the origin, final destination, and site of transit for men, women, and children involved in forced labour and sex trafficking.

Data from the National Crime Records Bureau show that over 1,700 cases of human trafficking were reported by the government’s anti-human trafficking divisions in 2020, with sexual exploitation for prostitution serving as the main motivation.

The only consolation in light of these figures is the existence of NGOs like Rescue Foundation, which are dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating, and repatriating victims of human trafficking recovered from various locations in India, Nepal, and Bangladesh.

Saving Sex Trafficking Victims

Rescue Foundation, a non-profit, government-recognized, and registered NGO, was founded in 2000 by the late Balkrishna Acharya and is currently run by his wife Triveni. It works to fulfil its obligations to this most underserved group of our society. Their main goal is to guarantee that women’s human rights are upheld, safeguarded, and realised.

The group assists in the rescue of 300 girls annually on average. They make sure that these women and girls are trained in the appropriate trades and life skills so that they can live a life of dignity following the rescue.

The “Wall of Blessings” signifies hope for all sex trafficking survivors, according to Triveni Acharya, a veteran investigative journalist and co-founder of Rescue Foundation. During 5000 victims of sex trafficking have been rescued by the Mumbai-based NGO in various regions of the nation over the past 20 years.
