“… we have successfully rescued and rehabilitated 116 women … with 17 internationally trafficked women.”


Rahab Centre for Hope rehabilitates, gives skill and vocational training, counselling, formal and non-formal education, and focuses on the holistic development of women and help them to stand on their own feet by empowering them and assisting them in finding employment.

Rahab also ensures that they get the support required to be financially independent and re-enter into the main stream of society and start a new chapter in their lives.


As you are aware Rahab Centre for Hope, rescues, provides complete physical & psychological rehabilitation, as well as education, vocational training and employment opportunities to women who are abused and victims of human trafficking. We have 10 girls in our Safe Home in the first and second phase of our programs. 

I am pleased to inform you that one of our girls, Ms. Renu has been awarded the National Bravery Award 2013 – the prestigious Geeta Chopra Award by the Prime Minister of India, Dr. Manmohan Singh on Saturday, 26th January, during our Republic Day celebrations.
Citation read during the various ceremonies by the PM, President, Vice President, Chief Minister, Lt. Governor, Chief of Army, Admiral of Navy, State Bank of Patiala, Delhi Council of Child Welfare, National Commission for Protection of Child Rights :  Ms. Renu, mustered courage to flee from the clutches of inhumane and barbaric treatment meted out by the owner, relatives and staff of the Shelter Home that she was living for the past 8 years.

Unable to take it anymore, of the unabated physical and sexual abuse, she fled to see help from Childline, who then presented her before the Child Welfare Committee.  On hearing her story, the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights sent a team to inquire into the affairs.  The night long operation exposed the physical, psychological and sexual abuse of children, sale of babies, innovative ways of corporal punishment, forced labour and many other inhumane acts inflicted upon the hapless, destitute children.She spoke out on behalf of over two hundred inmates and their siblings and exhibited determination to fight the perpetrators of inhumane treatment. 

Renu’s daring and valiant act sets an example for many young girls. Renu receives the highest bravery award for minor girls – the prestigious Geeta Chopra Award, a braveheart who stood for social injustice.  She is the first girl who has ever been recognized and awarded from an NGO.   This award has motivated the rest of the girls at our Safe Home. It was a privilege and an honour to be with her during the felicitations  by the various VVIPs, and  I wish to personally thank each one of you for your support, which has helped us in bringing freedom and hope to these women.

Warm regards,
Eunice Stephen
