Advocacy in support of ‘School for Justice’

SI Poona held an Advocacy Programme  on 15th April 2017 jointly with the University Women’s Association, Pune. A presentation   on   the “SCHOOL FOR JUSTICE” was made by Ghazala Shaikh  of  “Free a Girl Movement “ which is supported by Dutch Soroptimists.This is a worldwide initiative which aims to fight against human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation of minors as well as others. The idea of starting a Law School for survivors of forced trafficking was floated by a Soroptimist club in the Netherlands. These girls then would fight their own legal battles and help others of their community. A member of SI Pune was informed about it by our UK Link in Kings Lynn.Ghazala Sheikh and her colleague Francis Gracias presented this programme in Pune. They spoke about the proposed School for Justice which will start with 7 girls who have been rescued from the red-light area of Kolkata
