Partnership has been the foundation for all Prajwala interventions. Starting with women in prostitution and survivors of sex trafficking as core partners, over time as the organization has evolved, many more stakeholders have collaborated with us to advance our anti-trafficking mission.
Throughout the years Prajwala has received financial support from UNICEF, International Organization for Migration, Government of India, UNIFEM, Volkart Foundation, Catholic Relief Services, Ek Disha Inc, Hilton Foundation, Give India, UNODC, Misereor (Germany), Leger Foundation (Canada), Edukans (The Netherlands), Vital Voices, Global Giving, Reliance Foundation, Philip R. Berlinski, Google, United Way of Mumbai, iPartner and Goldman Gives/Krishna Rao Family Foundation. These agencies have played a crucial role not only by being the financial backbone of the organization but also by consistently mentoring it.
At the field level, our network partners have contributed extensively to the growth of the organization. State-level partners such as Stree, HELP, Sravanti, CARD, RISE, Mahita, Divya Disha and national level partners such as STOP, Legal Services, Prayas, Sanlaap, Prerna, Rescue Foundation, Vanchit Vikas, Open Learning Systems, Snehalaya, Anyay Rahit Zindagi (ARZ), Just Trust, Manav Adhikar Kendra, Jabala Action Research Organization, Childline and Odanadi have played a vital role in evolving a support system to sustain the cause. A number of international partners such as Maiti Nepal, Bangladesh Women’s Lawyers Association (BNWLA), Rights Jessore, and Cyprus-Stop Trafficking Today have become functional partners with increasing number of repatriation of victims to these countries.
Also at the international level Friends of Prajwala in the United States, Switzerland, Canada and Australia have played a pivotal role in facilitating a global movement to combat trafficking. The commitment and partnership of wonderful volunteers and friends from across the world have helped strengthen our mission through day-to-day non-monetary support—proving beyond doubt that sustained partnership is possible even from a distance. At one end of the spectrum partnership with the community and at the other end, partnership with the Government both at the state and central level largely in the form of Ministry of Women Development & Child Welfare and the Home Ministry, have been reason for the sustenance and existence of the organization.
