  Achievements

 

 

Project just started. The land on which the shelter is to be built has been decided and accquiring it will be the first step in the project.

 

  Goals

 

 

VISION: To stop second generation prostitution and end child prostitution. MISSION:Apart from minimising sexual harassment of the children Guria intends to stop school dropouts and enroll more children into the mainstream schools.The night shelter will also mark the beginning of a holistic approach which will include tuition, health care, councelling and recreational facility.It will help to minimize the dependence of the women on the exploitative criminal nexus which will certainly provide security to the children from the clutches of the pimps.
