We Rescue Children from Brothels. We care for women & children who have been trafficked into prostitution in Kolkata. We turn brothels into shelters and workshops. We start livelihood programs.
SCRIPT has 3 objectives
Rescuing children from Brothels
The prime beneficiaries of the sponsorship programme are children below 18 years within red light areas. They face many risks including psychosocial distress, poor health, malnutrition, addiction, sexual exploitation and trafficking. These children are either brought up by the victims alone or they are orphaned by diseases like HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis. They are often looked after by traffickers, brothel owners or pimps looking for potential profits in the near future by trafficking them.
SCRIPT provides some of these vulnerable children with an alternative to this high-risk environment. Through external sponsorship, we are able to support the women to send their children to residential schools.
The prime beneficiaries of the shelter programme are girls above 18 years who have been able to achieve a basic literacy level, enabling them to find a job in mainstream society. These girls, still living with their mothers within red light areas, are a group targeted by traffickers.
To maintain their innocence, our shelter home for girls has been set up. This shelter provides a secure life for 25 girls from different red light areas, enabling them to live a safe and healthy life, and to find work.
We now have 25 women who work full time making goods from recycled bicycle tires which are sold in the west. Others make craft and ethnic items. We will be recruiting a further 25 in 2013.
