Pari - A Home for Prajwala children

Hi All,

 

It is just recently that I came to understand the extent of tragedy that occurs in the lives of some “Angels” that live amongst us. It truly became apparent to me when our family friends shared the work of Dr. Sunitha Krishnan who has tirelessly worked on bettering the lives of children who are forced into the dark world of  flesh trade. She under the banner of Prajwala has worked since 1996 in a holistic approach to undermine the flesh trade. The programs to implement these strategies and interventions are focused on Prevention, Rescue, Rehabilitation, Reintegration and Advocacy. 

Since inception, Prajwala has successfully rescued and rehabilitated over 12,000 women and girls from sex slavery. Over 6,500 of the graduates of Prajwala’s rehabilitation program are currently gainfully employed. Through education, over 8,000 children of women in prostitution have been kept out of the sex trade.  

You can watch Dr. Sunitha Krishnan's TED talk here: http://www.ted.com/talks/sunitha_krishnan_tedindia?language=en 

Prajwala’s home page is http://www.prajwalaindia.com/ 

As a next step in doing our part in helping these “Angels”, some of us would like to help build a room in the rehabilitation center in Hyderabad. The cost of doing so is approx. $10000.00 and will be used by Prajawala in its efforts for this noble and worthy cause and we will call it the “Pari” Room in honor of not any individual or organization but as a tribute to the “angels” who need our help.  The urgency in doing this asap is to facilitate Prajwala to move into their own premises as the current landlord of the rented place is asking them to move by September due to threats and intimidations from traffickers.

It is my hope and prayer that you will open up your hearts and donate to this heart breaking cause. Pls consider donating any amount that your heart feels is appropriate. No amount is too big or too small. The safety of all children and women from this cruel and dark world of sexual exploitation is everyone’s responsibility at some level… If you can help us get to the goal, pls make your tax-deductible donation of any amount of your choosing. Once the construction is complete you may also visit the center to see how things are progressing.

Looking forward to us joining hands in securing future of young children and creating a world free of sexual slavery.  Do share this with your friends and family that can help us make this a reality. It does take a community to make a change and am counting on each of you to help thru this process and put a smile on each of those “Pari’s”.  

God Bless and Thanks,

Ravi
