Gramin Samassya Mukti Trust: Creating Opportunities for the Deserving

In the Hindi movie Talaash, Kareena Kapoor who plays an escort makes a heart wrenching statement “jinn logon ki ginnti hi nahi hoti, unke liye kya justice?” And momentarily, going beyond our day-to-day concerns, we are forced to think about the plight of commercial sex workers.

Knowing that poverty doesn’t hold many doors open, we are forced to think about what could possibly serve as a beam of hope and happiness for her and we can only empathise that if tomorrow offers the promise of a secure future for her child, she might be willing to endure her present struggles.  Thankfully, the world still offers some hope to the deprived. There are people working to spread love and positivity. And one such organization is Gramin Samassya Mukti Trust. Established in year 1999, targeting children of female sex workers (FSW) from slums located in Lalguda region of Wani, Maharashtra.

The organization was set up with the simple aspiration to offer hope to women involved in high risk professions and nothing shows their determination better than their record of placing nineteen girls as nurses into prominent hospitals in Pune, ten of which are mentioned below:
