289 Projects sanctioned under 'Ujjawala' Scheme
Dec 23, 2014

The Government is implementing Ujjawala–a comprehensive scheme for prevention of trafficking and rescue, rehabilitation and reintegration of victims of trafficking for commercial sexual exploitation.

The scheme is envisaged for women and children who are vulnerable to trafficking and those who are victims of trafficking for commercial sexual exploitation. However, sex workers who are voluntarily in the trade and wish to be rehabilitated can also avail of rehabilitation services provided under the Ujjawala Scheme.

As on date, 289 projects including 165 Protective and Rehabilitative Homes have been sanctioned under the Scheme. These rehabilitation centres are given financial support for providing shelter and basic amenities such as food, clothing, medical care, legal aid, education in case the victims are children, as well as for undertaking vocational training and income generation activities to provide the victims with alternate livelihood option.
