Theory of Change

Change is a continuous process and each day we aim to bring a little amount of change in the lives of the women in brothel-based prostitution and their daughters by providing them with services such as Education, health, empowerment, recreation, and shelter home services. By providing services not only for the women but their daughter’s Apne Aap Women’s Collective (AAWC) seeks to empower the second generation to escape the cycle of prostitution, secure well-paid skills-based jobs, and eventually bring their mothers out of prostitution as well.

Our outreach workers act as the primary point of contact between the organisation and its existing and potential beneficiaries, making daily visits into the brothels and homes to conduct check-ins and maintain necessary amicable ties with the surrounding community. Since building rapport with women who have been consistently exploited is crucial to enrolling newbeneficiaries into Umeed and their daughter’s into Udaan. AAWC’s trained outreach team follows a strict protocol of respect and empathy to bring beneficiaries from the brothels to the AAWC centre.
