On February 20, 2018, Guria hosted it’s fourth annual Worldwide FREEDOM NOW Art Exchange and Exhibit. The exhibit at the Varanasi red-light area education center was a success! To date, we have had 86 schools from 15 different countries take part in Guria’s Freedom Now art campaign, and more schools using curriculum resources in their classrooms! Thank you for all those involved. If you would still like to be a part of the ongoing exchange, visit http://freedomnowcampaign.org/howtoparti.html for guidelines on participation. We have decided to put forward a second date, April 12, for schools who couldn’t meet the February 20 deadline to create art and host exhibitions. # humantrafficking # slavery # freedomnow # Guria # sextrafficking # sexslavery # childprostitution # commercialsexualexploitation # rape # rescue # varanasi
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.
