“I have never let obstacles of any kind stop me from helping people of less privileged strata of society; something I used to do as a school student. In those days, I used to teach children in my neighbourhood. But, in my teens, when I was living with my parents Raju and Nalini Krishnan in Bangalore, my attention turned towards women who were sexually exploited.” says Sunitha. This was what led her to start an NGO, which evolved on the philosophy based on the needs of women and children who are victims of human trafficking. Prajwala is an anti-trafficking organization, which believes in preventing women and children from entering prostitution, which is the worst form of sexual slavery. The organization also helps pay for the education of five thousand children infected with HIV/AIDS in Hyderabad. Prajwala’s “second-generation” prevention program operates in 17 transition centers and has served thousands of children of prostituted mothers. The NGO’s strategy is to remove women from brothels by giving their children education and career opportunities. Krishnan and her staff train survivors in carpentry, welding, printing, masonry and housekeeping. Malayalam movie director Vineeth Sreenivasan was inspired by her life while developing the story of his latest movie, Thira. Sunitha has been invited to speak at various events like TEDIndia, SatyamevJayate, NDTV’s We the People, to name a few.
