Innocent Children of these sex workers caught our attention, when we started working in red light areas. It was necessary not only to keep the children away from the wrong environment; but also take care of their proper upbringing. It was essential that the children do not live in the red light area. “Neehar” is now a safe home for these children.

It is difficult task to shut down the prostitution activity. But helplessly it was decided to help the prostitutes by providing medical care in the red light area so that their health & poverty does not come in the middle of their business & their life style will be uplifted by counseling. Keeping this aim in mind Vanchit Vikas started Clinic and Counseling center in the red light area in 1995. Presently Pathfinder International funds this project by the name Mukta.
