Nishtha is an organization supported by several chapters of Asha for Education to provide mainstream education and night shelter to children of sex workers.
Project Focus and Location:
- Education and shelter for children of sex workers
- Location: Subuddhipur, De Para Baruipur South 24 Parganas, Kolkata 700144 West Bengal, India
- Nishtha was initiated in 1975 in the rural area of Baikunthapur, West Bengal to support and empower women who are forced into sexual labor to provide for families.
- As a result, the children of these sex workers, especially girls are at a heightened risk for early marriage and sex trafficking.
Goals of the Nishtha Project:
- Provide financial aid in order to support education for children of sex workers (Nishtha – Jagaran).
- Provide a night shelter for these children (Nishtha – Night Shelter).
- Empower women within the village to evade businesses of sex trafficking and prostitution.
