Non-Formal Education Center Diwali Celebration!

Diwali celebration at Guria’s non-formal education center in Varanasi’s red light area. In preparation for this day, the children worked for weeks, creating elaborate cities and towns out of recycled/oblique materials only. Both teams, the old building and the new building, created intricate scenes. Some highlights: a rangoli in the shape of India, a model of Varanasi’s beautiful Cantt Railway Station, a village complete with water buffalo, rice paddies, and farmers, the Himalayan mountain range, and much more. And of course, fireworks! We were happy to host our foreign friends, Leap Now, Princeton University Bridge Year Program, and Where There Be Dragons students were all present.

Allahabad rescue and legal success!

UPDATE - Allahabad red light area rescue with a national record of 61 brothels seized : Guria, in order to foil all efforts of the traffickers to re-traffic the rescued victims through fake documents, got 4 custody applications and 38 habeas corpus petitions rejected in the district court and Hon’ble High Court respectively.
