South 24 Parganas is the largest district in West Bengal and the sixth most populous district in India. Poverty, lack of education, false promises of jobs and better lives, child marriage etc. facilitate trafficking in many forms. When these victims are rescued, their rehabilitation and reintegration is a hard-pressing issue which is compounded by the stigma faced by the victims and their families.
Bandhan Mukti is a movement by such victims with the mentorship of GORANBOSE GRAM BIKASH KENDRA, which aims to transform the survivors into change-makers where the survivors take a leading role in process of delivering justice and also contribute in saving vulnerable girls of the districts from becoming victims of trafficking. BandhanMukti is an equal and important partner in the anti-trafficking ecosystem.
The initiative is a platform for the victims of sex trafficking to fight stigma at family and community level. It is collective advocacy with the local administration to ensure justice as well as for rehabilitation for the victims.

ABOUT THE NGO
Goranbose Gram Bikash Kendra (GGBK) is registered not-for-profit voluntary organization providing rescue, rehabilitation and reintegration support with a focus on justice for the marginalised girls and women in the Sunderban delta of South 24 Parganas District of West Bengal.
Over 35 years of work in the most vulnerable communities, GGBK has partnered with marginalised communities for solution design and impact. GGBK’s program (Bandhan Mukti Program) to work with survivors of trafficking has led to preventing many lives from being exploited. In times of COVID 19, and the disaster, it’s becoming even more pertinent and important to protect the girls from being trafficked, lured into child marriage and being threatened by traffickers.

How does crowdfunding work?
Crowdfunding in India is a relatively new concept & is growing very quickly.
It’s s concept that allows a large number of funders (like you) to fund an idea or a cause or event by giving small amounts of money online. Fueladream is a crowdfunding site and platform in India that allows for such pooling of funds. You can fund innovations & ideas on FuelADream and be the first to get these products or make them come true. You can also do a good turn by funding charities and causes through crowdfunding. When you fund a charity it’s more like a donation & you get small innovative rewards like a shout-out on a FB page or a thank you email from the beneficiaries.
