At first,when I decided to cross India on foot,i just wanted to do it for myself,as a personal challenge and just make an idea,a wish come true. Later on i felt the need of turning my endeavour into something others could benefit from as well. Someone said "happiness is real only when it's shared" and i want to share my enthusiasm and joy with women like me. Women in need. As i walk through the country,beside following me,watching me and interacting with me through my media channels,you will also be able to play a very important role in my expedition.
I decided to partner up with Apne Aap Women's Collective. By providing services not only for women in prostitution but also for their daughters and small children, Apne Aap Women’s Collective (AAWC) seeks to empower this second generation to escape the cycle of prostitution, secure well-paid skills-based jobs, and eventually bring their mothers out of prostitution as well.
AAWC outreach workers act as the primary point of contact between the organisation and its existing and potential members, making daily visits into the brothels and homes to conduct check-ins and maintain necessary amicable ties with the surrounding community. Since building rapport with women who have been consistently exploited is crucial to enrolling new members into Umeed and their children into Udaan and Umang, AAWC’s trained outreach team follows a strict protocol of respect and empathy to bring members from the brothels to the AAWC centre. We provide a wide array of financial services, health examinations, educational and empowerment programming, recreational activities, and, when necessary, shelter home services. Through these channels, Udaan girls and Umang children empower themselves to achieve academic success and, eventually, professional success, thereby reintegrating themselves into mainstream society. Meanwhile, Umeed women improve their financial security and physical and emotional health, gradually reintegrating into society by exiting the prostitution or through the success of their children. India on my own as a women clearly can potentially expose me to some of the risks these women face on a daily basis.
Beside being a spiritual journey of deep analysis and personal challenge,i want my mission to help those who can’t have the same freedom.
It’s the freedom walk through,not just for myself but for them as well.
