The poetry of love in all places
and all times is always beautiful but the best is yet to be
sung...and the Children will think of you till again you slowly read and dream of the soft look your eyes had once...

Welcome To Our Site

Guria, a non-profit organisation, has been fighting the sexual exploitation of  women & girls specially forced prostitution &  trafficking which has  further become severe and complex due to sex tourism and spread of HIV/AIDS. While responding to their immediate suffering we are focusing on the root causes of prostitution  poverty and inequality. We strongly believe that it is not charity that  is wanting in the world-it is justice to make a humane world where all beings co-exist in harmony.

Guria, had made a beginning with the adoption of three children of a woman in prostitution (WIP) by Ajeet in 1991. At present we are working for creation and restoration of the rights of women in prostitution (WIP) and their children at Varanasi & Mau Red Light Area in U.P. and Bedia tribe, involved in traditional family-based prostitution at Raisen, M.P. Parallely we are also focusing on the prevention of human trafficking in the source districts of eastern U.P , India and Indo-Nepal border.
