Odanadi is a small organisation based in Mysore, southern India. We rescue and rehabilitate individuals who have been trafficked, prostituted, enslaved or abused. We offer them a home, counseling, an education and career opportunities. But it doesn't stop there: Odanadi's education, awareness and empowerment programmes prevent trafficking in some of the region's most vulnerable communities.
Every day in India, young people are lured away from their homes by criminal trafficking networks. In the hands of traffickers, children are sold, exploited and robbed of their childhoods. Many will end up on the brothels, on the streets and living on the margins of society.
Over the past 20 years we have rescued more than 2,000 men, women and children; carried out more than 57 brothel raids and brought more than 137 traffickers to justice.
