The Reshma Project

Expose. Empower. Enrich.

THE VISION

The vision of the Reshma Project is to expose the darkness of sex trafficking, to empower the enslaved to escape bondage, and to enrich their life and self with dignity.

What We Do

The Reshma Project aims to connect sponsors to women who are leaving their life in the brothels of India. This allows for each sponsor to invest in a specific woman's journey to sustainable freedom, based on her individual needs. We hope to instill in each woman a sense of dignity, hope, identity, and ultimately partner with her in attaining physical and spiritual freedom. 

How We Do It

This sponsorship will see the woman through 3 separate phases.

First, she will move into a restoration home and live with other woman transitioning into freedom. There she will begin to learn a skill, she will receive counseling, and she will begin to set goals for herself.

Once she has attained these goals and is equipped with the tools she needs to get a job, she will move into a home where she is actively contributing to the financial costs of living, with just a few other women. In this phase, she is learning how to integrate back into society, or maybe enter it for the first time. She is learning money management, sustaining employment, and gaining other tools for everyday life.

Finally, she will have the opportunity to move to her hometown, or to another place of her choosing. Here, using her newly acquired skills and tools, she can begin to build her own life; run her own business and live in her own housing.
