What's the problem?
And can you imagine...that despite all of this, your city does not welcome you? That your neighbors are ashamed of you? That every year you move to a new flat, and every year you are kicked out?
Why? Because you are from a red-light area.
What's our solution?
Hi, we are the Krantikaris - we were born and raised in Kamathipura, Asia’s most infamous red-light area. We are survivors of trafficking. We are daughters of sex workers. We are young women, ages 13-19, with big plans and big dreams.
But in the last four years, we've changed homes four times! Luckily, we just found a place where we can stay for three years. But unluckily....it's an old factory - no kitchen, no bathrooms, no beds. These funds will help us turn an old factory into a home fit for Krantikaris!
How can you help?
The last four years we have lived in some very strange and interesting places, but none of those spaces have been HOME. We want to build this space into the perfect Kranti home to meet all our needs - a classroom for yoga, theater and dance; quiet spaces for therapy or to cry alone; bathrooms with three sinks to get ready for school; and bunk beds where we can talk laaaaate into the night without the staff knowing! :)
