Ajeet's continued living with the adopted Bedia village in Madhya Pradesh has been instrumental in our fight against family-based prostitution. The Bedia are a caste that traditionally practices family-based prostitution, and the Non-Formal Education center in the state of Madhya Pradesh offers alternative opportunities to vulnerable children.
Guria Swayam Sevi Sansthan is a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting human trafficking and forced
prostitution in Northern India. Based in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, we respond to immediate suffering and investigate the root causes of prostitution,
poverty and inequality. We believe in a multi-faceted approach to fighting this deeply entrenched problem. We are involved in legal aid
and intervention, victim rescue and rehabilitation, NFE (non-formal education)
centers in the red light areas of Varanasi and Mau, a boat
school on the Ganges River, police sensitization programmes, rural womens’
empowerment, activism and research. We strongly believe that through grassroots
and prevention work, it is possible to end this modern form of slavery.
