Most of the women in GB road’s brothels have either been sold or kidnapped and they are here because they have no other way out. They and their children have been living in inhuman conditions with no nutritious food and basic medical needs. Even their kids aren’t allowed to get an education because these people think if a sex worker’s kid gets educated it will hinder the sex trade in future,” says Gitanjali Babbar, Founder of Kat-Katha.Life inside brothels

Sold at a young age and entrapped by fear, this is the state of 2,700 women including their 700+ children, who live on GB Road - Delhi’s largest red-light area and home to over 100 illegal brothels. Behind most of these women’s faces lies an untold story of pain and suffering - and hope that their children do not share the same fate.

Belonging to a family of traditional Mujra dancers, 19-year-old Seema's* life was decided the moment she was born. Not exposed to education or other livelihood opportunities, she was trapped into sex work and was sold to a brothel in GB Road by her own kin. 

Exploited, abused and raped by multiple men, Seema became the mother of three kids and faced a bleak and uncertain future till Kat-Katha brought her into their fold.

Through Kat-Katha, Seema became part of our Maitri Meals, a lunch box service that aims at creating an alternate livelihood. She tasted freedom for the first time, was exposed to a different possibility and now she leads the kitchen project, away from sex work. With dreams to start her own business soon and support her children, Seema has come a long way to live a life of her own choice. And this is the kind of change we wish to see in every woman sex worker on GB road,” says Gitanjali Babbar.

Kat-Katha - a saviour for the sex workers

Founded with a vision to end forced sex work, Kat-Katha has changed the lives of several women on GB road by quietly transforming these brothels into classrooms and safe spaces for women and their children. From providing skills training for different livelihoods to schools for the children of sex workers and activity centres, Kat-Katha has enabled 100s of women and children to fight against their fears and challenges to live a life of their own choice with dignity and respect.

The women and children who have spent their lives with the grim realities of GB Road deserve a second chance - free from exploitation and abuse. Through Kat-Katha you can help transform their lives. To ensure skills training, provide nutritious food, medicines and rehabilitation for a sex worker Kat-Katha needs ₹20,000 a month and ₹5,000 a month for their child’s education and welfare.

There’s no contribution too small to help GB Road’s sex workers and their children work towards a better, safer future. Every penny you give opens the door to a new life away from these dark dungeons of sexual exploitation. Donate now
