3 million women in India are trapped in the commercial sex trade.

How you can help

Design & textiles provide artisans with full-time careers outside of the commercial sex trade. The new economic realities give artisans financial stability, confidence and restoration of self-worth. This, combined with their developed skill set and ability to create beautifully constructed quilts, empowers the artisans as they pursue a meaningful career.

About this nonprofit

Anchal provides alternative careers in textiles to commercial sex workers in India. By offering design training, full-time employment, education workshops and health care, Anchal gives women the opportunity to leave the exploitative sex trade and embark on a new life as an artisan.
