Mukti Ashram

Mukti Ashram

Founded in 1991, Mukti Ashram was formed as the  first center in India for rescued bonded labourers. Since 2007 Mukti Ashram has emerged as a model for providing immediate support and access to services for children rescued from child labour and trafficking including food, clothing, shelter, medical aid, psychological and legal assistance, recreation and everyday care. BBA ensures that the children get best quality care to overcome the trauma of slavery and servitude.

 

While at Mukti Ashram, the children receive non-formal education trauma counseling, rights based empowerment and capacity building and psycho- social counseling which eases the process of their reintegration in the society. To ensure that parents do not fall prey to the enticement or the deception, they are also encouraged to pledge against all forms of child labour and are explained the virtue of education in detail. The children and also their parents are counseled and are made aware of the vices of trafficking, child/bonded labour, and slavery so as to spread awareness as well as avoid re- trafficking.
