TRIVENI BALKRISHNA ACHARYA, Mumbai India, Rescue, Inc. Triveni talked with Mary and Arlene about her work at Rescue, Inc., the organization she and her late husband founded to help women and girls who were trafficked to brothels in Mumbai. She won one of the 3 international “Women of Peace Awards� given by the Women’s Peacepower Foundation. Triveni raids brothels in red-light districts with police to rescue underage girls who are trafficked from Nepal, Bangladesh, and North India and sold into prostitution. She then helps the girls build a different life, starting with psychosocial counseling and then integrating them back into society with the supports they need. http://www.womenspeacepower.org. www.rescuefoundation.net
