Mission and Vision

MKGandhi

Vision: A world in which no woman or girl is bought or sold

Our vision is a world where every woman and girl can realize her full potential.

Mission: To end sex trafficking

Our mission is to increase choices for at-risk girls and women in order to ensure access to their rights, and to deter the purchase of sex through policy and social change.

Theory of Change: Inspired by the Gandhian vision of Ahimsa (Non-Violence) and Antyodaya (uplift of the Last)

We dismantle the system of prostitution by:

  1. Increasing choices for the last (weakest and most marginalized) girls and women from red light areas and caste communities suffering from inter-generational prostitution by helping them access education, citizenship documents, government subsidies, livelihood skills, health care, legal protection, and friendship circles.

  2. Deterring the purchase of sex through policy and social change.

We are inspired by the twin Gandhian principles:

  • Ahimsa (non-violence) — Resisting violence to the self and to the other.
  • Antodaya (upliftment of the last woman) — Antodaya’s last person is the prostituted girl or woman.
