We are raising awareness to a critical situation in India, as COVID19 continues to tear through impoverished areas, further threatening women and girls living through the devastatingly traumatic reality of sex-trafficking.
Apne Aap Women Worldwide is a grassroots Indian organization that empowers marginalized girls and women to resist and end sex trafficking. 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. This project builds self-confidence among girls to express themselves, learn about their rights and gain an education through which they can prevent their sex trafficking.
While COVID-19 has been tough on everyone, it has been particularly disastrous for victims of sex-trafficking & their children, many of whom were already barely making ends meet. They have lost all income in the last few weeks. Their children have returned from school & families of 4 to 11 are locked down in tiny rooms with no windows. More than 85 % report that they have no food, no money, no fresh air and that housing is at risk. Victims of sex-trafficking need food now, more than anything.
The 1MillionMeals project will serve 1.1 million meals & some hygiene packs to 2,500 women and 7,500 children in the red-light areas of Kolkata, Delhi & Bihar for 55 days. We are providing & will continue to provide weekly food ration & hygiene packs of masks, soap, basic medicine & sanitary pads for 10,000 adult women & their children. This is 20,000 meals a day, ie 1,100,000 meals for the 55 day lockdown. This will ensure basic survival till the government comes up with a plan beyond the lockdown.
