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.
