In support of ARZ – ANYAY RAHAT ZINDAGI
This month we are helping by contributing funds towards an organization that has been doing phenomenal work by combating trafficking of women and children for the purpose of sexual abuse and commercial sexual exploitation in Goa
Arz works both with the victims of commercial sexual exploitation, and also against those who are perpetrators of this crime.
Arz has been involved in rescue, rehabilitation, reintegration, education and providing livelihood alternatives to the victims of commercial sexual exploitation in Goa.
www.stoptrafficking.in: Arz has been working at National Level and also in the South East Asia very actively through its web portal www.stoptrafficking.in in tracing missing person, reuniting the found person with the family, rescue of victims, service mobilization, linking service providers, high lighting issues of human trafficking, guiding and advising the service providers in the government and non-government sector.
Economic Rehabilitation for victims of CSE:- Arz has set-up a “non residential economic rehabilitation unit”, Swift Wash, which is a mechanized laundry unit. The rehabilitation unit is first of its kind and is providing rehabilitation to the members of prostitution market victims and perpetrators, male as well as female who have exited from the commercial sexual exploitation. The beneficiaries receive a salary of Rs. 5500, and also benefits such as ESI, Provident fund, crèche for children, free education for school going children, free bus service for pick up and drop, education, computer training, psycho-social counseling, legal aid, after care, etc. Till date around 200 persons have received benefits from the economic rehabilitation program. Swift Wash has successfully prevented recurrence of prostitution activities in the former red-light district, Baina, Vasco, Goa as is managed by the women who are the beneficiary of the program.

Arz has been providing rehabilitation services to the victims of commercial sexual exploitation at the Government State Protective Home, Goa since 2001.
Arz has been involved in the repatriation of the victim to their home states in India and also to the countries such as Nepal, Bangladesh and former Russian states.
Arz has formulated a scheme “Prabhat” for victims of commercial sexual exploitation for the Goa Government (Not yet notified).
