AAWC – Apne Aap Women's Collective

Apne Aap Women’s Collective (AAWC) was founded in 1998 to address the plight of women trafficked into brothel-based prostitution and their children with centers in Falkland Road and subsequently in Kamathipura. While serving the women in sex trade, AAWC realized that the daughters of the Umeed women were at a great risk of being coerced into prostitution due to their extensive exposure to the red light district. Also, the toddlers of the women were often found idling on the streets while their mothers were soliciting with clients. As a result, AAWC started 3 programs: Umeed (hope) for women in brothel-based prostitution, Udaan (flight) for the daughters of the women and Umang (joy) for the toddlers. The services provided to the 3 programs are finance, health, education, empowerment, recreation and shelter home placement services.
