Human trafficking is a rather disturbing aspect of society, and despite efforts by various NGOs, it continues to be a matter of concern for all those involved in rescuing them and rehabilitating women who have been sold as sex slaves. Prajwala, run by Sunita Krishnan, has completed its silver jubilee this year, and the NGO aims to eradicate the system in totality.


During the recent silver jubilee celebrations of Prajwala at Uppal, Rachakonda Police Commissioner Mahesh Bhagwat said that society must be free of human trafficking in the next 25 years. He added that there must be no need for an organization to rescue women in the coming 25 years.


Bhagwat took the opportunity to call upon sex workers and other such victims to come forward and lodge a complaint against traffickers and agents who land them in the profession. He lauded the efforts of Prajwala over the years and said that during post-rescue operations, all victims are provided with rehabilitation in Prajwala Shelter Homes.


And it is here that the process of assimilating them into the mainstream happens. The women are given financial aid and vocational training to lead a self-sustained life. Some victims are helped to get married and reintegrate into society.


The Rachakonda anti-human trafficking unit, along with SOT, has rescued about 700 victims belonging to not just India but from various countries such as Uganda, Tanzania, Nepal, Bangladesh, and other countries.


Speaking about her experiences over the years, Padmasri awardee Sunita Krishnan pointed out that the emotional, mental and physical trauma that a victim of human trafficking goes through is horrible and painful. She further added that Prajwala, along with the police, has helped in saving 24,500 victims from sex slavery.
