Empowering sex workers towards a life of freedom

Thousands of women are trapped in slavery in the sex trade.

Women who have been deceived and trafficked are shocking examples of modern day slavery. These women are treated as the personal property of individuals and are sold and traded at will through a network of pimps and brothel owners. Project Parivartan touches the lives of these women and their children through healthcare, educational, nutritional and counseling interventions. Those who seek to start a new life are placed in rehab homes across the city and state.

261 women were served through the Parivartan project.




That women in red light areas choose freedom from slavery and embrace an alternate lifestyle and livelihood.
