Anand Charity @ HARD: Rehabilitation of sex workers' children
Anand Charity is very pleased to offer its share in helping this organization in providing a quality life for the people.The grant from Anand Charity will be used to pay the current academic year (2009-2010) fees for four students from the Dommara community near Hyderabad (whose parents indulge in prostitution). Providing education to these students have several benefits
- Provide them with the power of decision making to choose between right and wrong.
- Help them realize the opportunity available for them outside their current world.
- Help them acquire the necessary HIV awareness and provide knowledge of preventive measures. Unemployment/absence of education is one of the main reasons forcing the girls into Prostitution
Anand Charity has transferred Rs. 78000/- to support HARD in providing these girls and boys with the education they need to live a respectable/sustainable life in the future. HARD's objective to reduce and control the spread of HIV/AIDS fits perfectly with Anand charity's goals.
