Every day, we’re working to give women and girls the choice of freedom. These are some of their stories.
CASE STUDY EXAMPLE
“I was married when I was 12 years old, then faced abuse for 12 years. My husband used to drink and have violent outbursts, beating me and literally throwing our children around. Finally, when a PeaceMaker came to my community, I realized my life could be different. It took 5-6 counseling sessions before my husband started to change, but he finally did! He used to come to counseling sessions drunk, so it took a while to make progress. He went to rehab, and understands that his drinking was killing our family’s future. Now, my husband, my 4 children and I are 10/10 happy!
I have one word of advice for other families facing these things: Go! Get rid of abuse! ” – Ayesha Begum
Red Alert Community story
CASE STUDY EXAMPLE
In the last year 400 girls have gone missing from one village –Odlabari Jalpijguri, West Bengal. 150 of these were reported, while the others were not pursued because a family member was involved in the case and the relatives don’t want to ruin their lives. In this village, Operation Red Alert is working with local NGO Doars Express and the SSB (Special Service Bureau’s Lead Intelligence Agency on the Indo-Nepal and Bhutan borders) to educate families and young girls on trafficking. Both Doars Express and the SSB are lead agents in the rescue of trafficked girls, but need support to work towards the prevention of trafficking. Together, we are reaching more families and building a more robust prevention-rescue network to keep girls safe!
