Welcome to Asha Jyothi

Asha Jyothi was established in 2007 and is based in Hyderabad, India, which is the capital of Andhra Pradesh. This state has the highest number of trafficked women and child laborers in India. Due to severe poverty and regular drought, many rural families end up migrating to the urban center of Hyderabad. Human traffickers take advantage of this situation and trick women and children into flesh trade ( Sex trafficking ) and human slavery. The goal of Asha Jyothi is to rescue these children and young girls from being trafficked and provide them hope and a vocational alternative. Asha Jyothi accomplishes these goals through Asha Jyothi Children’s Home and Asha Vocational Skills Training Program.
