Khidderpore Red Light Area Community Center
We have started a community center in the heart of the Khidderpore red light area in Kolkata. At this community center we teach the women job-oriented sewing skills along with literacy training and business workshops.
There are hundreds of government shelter homes in Kolkata for girls who have been rescued from a variety of distressed situations. Many of these children are the victims of tragedies such as sex trafficking, child labor, child marriage, domestic violence, and homelessness. We send volunteers to lead arts and crafts program, as well as literacy and sewing training.
We provide accommodation for women who have recently moved out of the shelter homes in Kolkata. Our homestay is a secure place for young women who are just beginning their journey to further their studies and employment.
Our sewing training is conducted by a professional trainer who teaches these young women everything from measurements to cutting and completing final products.
Education and Literacy
Our literacy program aims to reveal the positive aspects of education by overcoming the insecurity of illiteracy for these women. This program includes teaching group language classes and discussing about various topics such as health and hygiene.
