Adventure Ashram

Rescuing children from human trafficking

£5000 is the amount it costs our charity partner Odanadi Seva Trust to stage a rescue of women and children from situations of human trafficking. Those rescued by this charity have faced situations that no-one should ever face. Once rescued, Odanadi works to rehabilitate, providing a home and hope.

Situation

Child trafficking in south india. Human trafficking is an every- day occurrence in India. Young people in difficult circumstances are lured away from their homes by criminal trafficking networks. In the hands of these traffickers, children are sold often to brothel keepers or into domestic slavery and are exploited and robbed of their childhood, facing situations no child (or adult) should ever have to face. Trafficking networks are difficult to break requiring expert knowledge and influence.

Solution

As a grant giving charity Adventure Ashram works closely with Odanadi Seva Trust, an Indian grassroots charity. Based in Mysore, south India Odanadi has 20 years experience developing initiatives to combat human trafficking. Not only do they concentrate on helping one child at a time, they lobby the regional and national government on ways to tackle the countrywide problem. By raising £5000 this provides enough money to stage one rescue by Odanadi freeing numerous children from traffickers.
