Commitment to Action

Multiplying the Power of 10 to End Sex Trafficking

Commitment by

Apne Aap International

In 2011, Apne Aap Women Worldwide and the Rose Collar Foundation committed to provide intensive and holistic support to ten women in prostitution, transforming their lives and the lives of women in their communities by providing access to sustainable livelihoods and breaking the cycle of exploitation. Through this program, the ten women will receive safe shelter for themselves and their children; medical, mentoring, and counseling support; education on literacy, legal rights, and government entitlements; and full support to develop economic independence. Additionally, each woman in the program will be a member of an Apne Aap 'Self-Empowerment Group' with nine of her peers, and will be trained as a leader and trainer for both her own group and others. With this work, which will help these women to become strong advocates and leaders, Apne Aap and Rose Collar aim to make the program naturally self-scaling and increase the entire community's capacity for independence.
