The COVID Transformation
From Brothel to Learning Center for women and children.
Reaching out to women and children with food and hygiene supplies on a continual basis during the past year, Project Rescue was able to save many lives once the pandemic hit. More importantly this brought much needed hope to desperate women.
We are alive today only because of provisions you have given to us, but we want to thrive. What can you do to help us learn?
This request has launched the newest project from Project Rescue. Project Thitali (which means Project Butterfly) is a Community Development Program established to empower and transform women and children from the red light district.
Ultimately Project Thitali will be providing a safe space where the women and children of the red light district can learn skills in order to gain a respectful income. By providing a nutritious meal, few hours of skills development, adult literacy, emotional care, tutoring and online classes, counseling and emotional care they hope to see the cycle of trafficking broken in these women’s lives.
Project Thithali believes in the transformation of the body, mind and spirit of individuals but the building is currently in the process of transformation. A former brothel, Project Thithali will be a beacon of hope right in the middle of the red light district of Pune. Transforming a place which broke the will and spirits of women and children, will now begin healing these same women.
