Soolkaama was approached by volunteers working for Rescue Foundation to conduct a vocational training course in photography for the women in the shelter home. The course participants were victims of sex-trafficking and were sheltered with Rescue Foundation until their legal cases were settled.
During their time at the shelter home, they are encouraged to take up vocational training courses that can help them be independent once they leave the home. As part of the course, I invited various female photographers and other women working in creative arts to talk to the participants about career options available given their lack of formal qualifications. Soolkaama also secured an additional grant of Rs. 2,00,000/- from Lensational to conduct photography trainings for interested participants in their shelter home in Boisar, Palghar, MH.
