Chandni Patel works as a Fundraising and Communications Manager at Apne Aap Women’s Collective, an anti-trafficking organization. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Mass Media with a major in Journalism and is interested in working for gender issues. Apne Aap Women’s Collective was established in 1998 and prides itself in 100% prevention of second generation prostitution amongst the daughters of the women in sex trade. Initially working from a single-room, AAWC eventually developed into a resource centre that holistically addresses its members’ needs. Today, AAWC provides professional counseling, medical care, and micro-savings facilities in order to empower women with the long-term skills necessary for exiting prostitution permanently.
