Turn your kindness into support for abandoned young
women and girls recovering from sexual exploitation

 

We have to raise $65,000 to create a safe, loving home where young girls and women rescued from exploitation can live, learn and play until they’re ready to return to society.

 

The Bright Eyes Organisation is now leading a 2-year project at The Ulhasnagar Minor Home in Thane, India.

 

Ulhasnagar or “House of Joy” in English, will give shelter to girls aged 12 to 18 who’ve been abandoned by their families or community.

 

Brighteyes will develop an integrated support system for these girls and young women, proudly partnering with Group Stay Homes in plans to deepen the engagement, education levels and skills of these young women and girls.

 

The approach at The House of Joy is more long-term, focusing on academic education and multi-skilled vocational training. The girls can leave only when they’ve reached 18 and acquired a degree of new skills.

 

Brighteyes aims to use these programmes to help these young girls rebuild their lives over the next few years. Education is key to this outcome. It’s one of the most important things they can have. It empowers them to move forward with life and realise they can be more.

 

We need your help to make this happen

 

To help these young girls reach their potential, we need to raise $65,000.

By supporting this project, your donation will help create a proper home, a true ‘House of Joy’ where these young girls can be educated, counselled, trained and restored, ready to face the world.

 

We want them to feel protected and loved, but also empowered to step out and become everything they can be.
