To accomplish great things one must not only plan, but also believe that one person can make a difference by finding a purpose to serve.
Ms. Priti Patkar, cofounder, Prerana Anti Human Trafficking was presented with the prestigious Human Rights Award at the 13th Annual Global Leadership Awards in Washington DC, USA earlier this week on the 17th June. A fantastic achievement by a great woman, who has selflessly devoted her life to the rescue, protection, and rehabilitation of human trafficking victims in India.
Aphotic, dirty and dangerous are few of the words that best describe human trafficking. At a time when young children should study, plan their career and above all else enjoy their childhood, they are forced to enter the world of commercial sex and other exploitative and abusive activities. Often summed up as a ‘compelled service’, human trafficking has become a global threat to vulnerable men, women and children. Violence and coercion are used to sexually exploit women and young girls and force individuals to work with little or no pay; this is what Prerana is trying to end. Volunteers at Prerana work with passion and hand grip the task of equitably distributing human rights to all human beings.
Ms. Priti Patkar’s dreamt of a world free of human trafficking and made small efforts to make a great difference. LetzChange have joined hands with Prerana to help them reach their goals, committing to match (double) all donations made for Prerana on letzchange.org.
