Mission of Her Future Coalition
The mission of Her Future Coalition is to provide shelter, education, and employment to survivors of gender violence, so they can become and remain free forever.
The purpose of this project is to expand the services of three Red Light Area Resource Centers in Kolkata (Calcutta) in order to provide women with job training, employment, counseling, and informal education. It will also provide education, counseling, safe spaces, and therapeutic arts for these women’s children.
Why We Love This
We love this project’s focus on marginalized women who have experienced human trafficking and gender-based violence. This project seeks to help these women and their children to re-write their scripts for better futures.
