Human Trafficking

Apne Aap


In early 2012, Storm Warriors International made a personal visit to multiple Apne Aap organizational locations in India, to embed in the work being done there. Apne Aap fights sex trafficking by acknowledging both the supply side and the demand side of the industry. The organization feels it is important to both increase choices for women and fight for legislation and enforcement against pimps, traffickers, and johns. Apne Aap enables women to help themselves by providing a community experience, basic educational skills, as well as basic business and vocational training. Read about how Apne Aap helps women establish an independent livelihood, as well as their policy work.

In the videos below, the Founder, Ruchira Gupta, shares how she came to develop the organization. The second video features a survivor rescued by Apne Aap.
