a place of safety
Providing a safe place for those most at risk from trafficking and other forms of exploitation and abuse is vital.
This is why we do what we do!
The Pratigya children’s refuge shelter helps girls who are especially vulnerable to sex trafficking, child marriage, bonded labour, gender violence, child labour or other forms of exploitation, particularly generational.
We provide food and shelter in a loving, caring atmosphere, along with counselling for the girls, especially those who have been traumatised.
We ensure that the girls receive the nutrition they need, and give them access to healthcare.
All the girls have the opportunity to learn at one of our quality English-medium schools or on vocational training courses, along with any extra tuition they need.
We want to expand into a purpose-built shelter providing 100 long-term places for at-risk girls, 50 short-term places for women from vulnerable situations, and vocational skills training to residents and non-residents.
