Odanadi are working tirelessly against human trafficking (especial for sex trade) in India. They run a school for the children and provide a number of other support resources to the women and children that are primarily affected by this injustice.
Fight against human trafficking
Odanadi is a small organisation based in Mysore, southern India. They rescue and rehabilitate individuals who have been trafficked, prostituted, enslaved or abused. Offering them a home, counseling, an education and career opportunities.
But it doesn't stop there: Odanadi's education, awareness and empowerment programmes prevent trafficking in some of the regions most vulnerable communities.
Rescue victims of trafficking
Every day in India, young people are lured away from their homes by criminal trafficking networks. In the hands of traffickers, children are sold, exploited and robbed of their childhoods. Many will end up on the brothels, on the streets and living on the margins of society.
Over the past 20 years Odanadi have rescued more than 2,000 men, women and children; carried out more than 57 brothel raids and brought more than 137 traffickers to justice.
