Vihaan - that means ray of light or the dawn in Sanskrit - stands for hope and freedom. Everything we do is directed at bringing light into the lives of the survivors we serve.
Until December 2018, Waste Management Society, Yavatmal (WMS), worked through its project ‘Justice and Care’, fighting human trafficking through prevention, protection, prosecution and partnerships across India. Over the years, our work has helped save many lives, brought hope to the hopeless, and given them new beginnings. VIHAAN, our project’s new name, closely captures what we do and stand for.
Vihaan seeks to model, institutionalise and scale effective solutions specific to the crime of human trafficking and other forms of abuse and exploitation. We work with victims of sexual abuse and exploitation, bonded and child labour, domestic servitude and beggary.
We have a long-term vision to see trafficking become a rarity across the world and we can only fulfill this through a strong collaborative approach with the State and Judiciary and other like-minded organisations. Internally, Vihaan brings together a team of experts - social workers, counsellors, lawyers and researchers - to fight the crime. Through the work we do, we implement a number of frontline efforts and programs directed at eliminating all forms of human trafficking. We use a victim centric, end-to-end approach to facilitate rescue, provide access to legal support leading to justice, as well as provide rehabilitation and reintegration of survivors.
We cover the North, South, East and West of India with bases in:
