 Project 1 - An end to the commercial sexual exploitation of children
  The Issue
  Commercial sexual exploitation of children in the Asian region, mainly India, is becoming a rising trend. The economic growth in these regions have seen a major boom in the recent past and with it a sharp increase in the divide between the rich and the poor. The poor often people with little or no skills and often become hapless victims of human trafficking. Many of these victims are children, who are one of the softest targets for being sexually exploited. This abuse affects the very fibre of these children, affecting them not just physically but also wrecking them mentally and emotionally.

Their own families introduce most of these children to prostitution, while others are lured by promises of wealth, some are kidnapped, and all end up as sexual slaves. Because of abject poverty, families end up selling their children like they sell their cattle or poultry in order to survive. Many of these families rationalize this by assumptions that their children will then find work and not have to live in poverty. Those who do not cooperate are harassed, drugged, beaten, and raped. They are then thrown into brothels where they are further exploited.  These children are forced to live under unhygienic and inhumane conditions barely acquiring even the minimal standard of living. About a dozen children have to survive in a 10 x 10 room. They are not provided with any medical help or checkups. They are forced to work round the clock and are excused only by the time when they are physically destroyed. Then they are dumped and left to die.

In many Indian societies, the practice of Devdasi is widely accepted.  Devdasi is where the young girls, often poor, are “married” to the “gods”. They are then forced into becoming ‘religious prostitutes’, sleeping with the priests and the other powerful members of the community. Such practice, though well known, is also acceptable because it is licensed by the religion and the powerful.

A Study reveals that India's child sex industry is the second largest in the world after the Philippines and 14% of sex workers are children aged 10-17.
  Aim
 

Our project is aimed towards stopping commercial sexual exploitation of children by various means. We are fighting for the children who are forced into such activities and are ruthlessly taken advantage of. Our first step is to create awareness among the people about the problem of commercial sexual exploitation of children by different mediums such as theatre, films, presentations, talks, internet, magazines, films and various other mediums.


  Our action plan involves the following steps:
   
 
  • Research (for a thorough understanding of the problem)
  • Recognition (of the problem)
  • Awareness (among masses)
  • Rescue (through raids and other legal interventions)
  • Rehabilitation (both statuary and institutional)
  • Reintegration (of the former victims into mainstream society)

  The key focus areas in involve:
 

The construction of a rehabilitation home for victims

 

We wish to provide them with all the emotional, psychological and where required medical support, which shall in turn help them to grow up to be better human beings. This home will be a place where we can help re-integrate them into our society – our civil society. The home shall have a capacity for 100 children. We intend to provide them with better living conditions, proper education, good healthy food, medical check-ups, physical training, interactive workshops, vocational training and other means of entertainment. This can enable them to stand up on their own and secure a better future for themselves.

  Project 2 – The development and construction of a de-addiction centre
   
  Introduction
 

A very close partner of Swashrit Society, “MindTrack Clinic” was born in 1999 around the same time of Swashrit’s conception. It is a holistic clinic for treatment of all emotional, psychological and psychiatric illness. The clinic is run by a team of qualified medical professionals who believe in integrated system of medicine. MindTrack believes that every individual (personality) is unique; therefore treatment for different individuals should be tailored according to their needs for effective results.
Currently Mindtrack is running a half way home facility where they can extend services to only a limited clientele, but as the experts at Swashrit Society and Mindtrack understand the role of dual diagnosis in addictions we wish to expand into a full “Psychiatric De-addiction & Rehabilitation Center”.
