Rescue Home

endeavours to rescue, care for, and restore abused, exploited and at risk children.


India, the nation known for its culture, tradition and ethnicity is now facing the serious threat to the future pillars of the country. Today, the country is most affected with the menace of human trafficking. Most of the victim of trafficking are from segments of society that are highly marginalized by caste and discrimination, as well as socio-economic deprivation.

Trafficking for the sake of commercial sex acts and forced labour is the most common purpose of trafficking. Females are more trafficked when compared to the male. The primary purpose is profit driven. It has the elements of force, threat, coercion, abduction, abuse of power, inducement and deception.

Among the perpetrators, 53.5 % are the friends and family members.

The illegal profit gained from human trafficking from Sexual exploitation is  66% whereas the forced labor exploitation is 28.7% and the domestic servitude is 5.3%.

12.9 million children in India are engaged in labour from the age of 7-17 year of age. The national crime records bureau statistics made in the year 2018, revels a shocking report that as  per the age of the victims, 50% of them are below the age of 18 years.

Among this startling statistics, Delhi has become the prostitution hub and rape capital of the country.

In this scenario, good Samaritans are needed for rescuing the affected, victimized and  the persecuted.

Hence, the rescue ministry was initiated and the safe home for girls was established in 2014.

CWC Conducts a home enquiry to make sure that the child would be safe with the parents and then the restoration process begins. The opinion of the child is sought in an age appropriate manner and the best interest of the child is considered in restoration.

Follow up phone calls are made to the restored children.  Instructions are given to all the parents at the time of restoration to protect their children from further trafficking.
