With the help of different NGO’s across the city, YI has initiated an empowering drive for sex workers and their children by supporting them with nutritious food, education, books and games along with planning recreational and entertaining activities for them. YI in collaboration with the NGO Udaan had organized a special screening of the popular movie Gangubai Kathiawadi at Inox, Forum Mall on 22nd March’22, Tuesday for 100 sex workers of Sonagachi.

Vaibhav Soni, Chair, Young Indians (YI), Kolkata Chapter says, “The main reason for doing this event is to destigmatize sex workers and their community. This is just one step forward to empowering the sex workers community and mobilizing strategies to promote their health and human rights.
