We are a registered, non-profit, grass root NGO involved in rescue, rehabilitation & repatriation of victims of human trafficking trafficked from India, Bangladesh, Nepal and subjected to Commercial sexual exploitation in India. These young victims have lost all their human rights as they are physically and mentally tortured to force them to involve in sexual activities. We ensure that they regain all their human rights by rescuing them from the inhuman situation and rehabilitating them.
From childhood the nature of Our Founder President late Mr. Balkrishna Acharya was revolutionary & he always attempted to struggle against unjust & anti-social situation. That is the reason that he left his studies and jumped into Indian Army which Would serve his country even at a danger to his life. Then, later, he came across the humble faces of Unfortunate girls who were going through hell in the red light district of Kamatipura in Mumbai and risked his life to rescue them.In 1995, a Nepali small girl was crying pathetically in a dark room, wanting to be rescued from the inhuman trade of forced prostitution. That night he could not sleep. On the next day, also he lost his sleep. A person who was stronger than stone, appeared even more delicate than cotton. He was totally shaken. On one side he was surrounded by family, business and society while on the other side a deep rooted desire for changing the fate of these unfortunate girls to kindle hope of integrating with respectable society. He courageously decided to walk on a novena path From that day onwards, a distinct change came over him. It looked as if he started a part time honorary job in the red light area of Mumbai.
In the evening, when he used to down the shutter of the shop early and move to the red light area of Kamatipura early in the night, it was a matter of frightful surprise to all. He was counseling one girl who wanted to be rescued. God wished him to rescue five girls. And at the time of rescue, 13 girls came forward. It was like a God-sent Father had come to rescue them and give them a new life. That particular day also his eyes were wet but they were wet by tears of joy.
Slowly, he distanced himself from the family and started getting involved in the perils of red light areas. The possessiveness of the family and their concem about his safety were many a times instrumental in their try to persuade him not to get involved in such dangerous activities. But he was engrossed in his will to serve the mankind by rescuing these unfortunate humans. He transformed himself into a savior of the underprivileged. On one hand, the heart breaking cries of these thousands of girls and on the other hand, the lack of finance made him pursue his resolution ever so strongly. Luckily he got the support From nepal. This was the beginning in an organized way. For the first time in India, police were persuaded by an NGO to carry out rescue operation. He then realized that he can achieve better results by organising the rescue operations under an official, govemment recognized NGO. Thus he started Rescue Foundation in 2000.
Unfortunately He passed away in a car accident in 2005.
She was a journalist until she was nominated the President of Rescue Foundation in 2005. She used to assist her husband in social field as she had developed good contacts with the authorities, police and social workers in line of her duty. Being a very courageous yet sympathetic lady, under her leadership the organization has progressed many fold. When she took over, there was only one protective home for 50 girls at Mumbai. Today three homes are established. Her organization rescues on an average 300 girls, rehabilitates and repatriates 700 girls annually. Up to 2014 more than 5000 girls have been given a new life. She has been awarded many Indian and international awards of high repute. Her simplicity, just attitude towards solving challenges and love to the deprived girls are the prime motivating qualities of her management.
