VOICE - Exploring Hidden Truths « Back to Projects page

Modes of Commercial Sexual Exploitation
In brothel and hotel/lodge based commercial sexual exploitation, victims are housed in a fixed location and customers are solicited by pimps and brothel keepers. In street based commercial sexual exploitation, the victims are forced, by the traffickers, to solicit customers. In mobile commercial sexual exploitation, victims are driven around in a vehicle by the traffickers and soliciting is done by the traffickers' agents.

VOICE is a resource centre for research, documentation, publication, short-films and audio-visual aids on anti-trafficking and related issues. It was launched with the intention of studying the reasons for the spread of commercial sexual exploitation, from Baina to other parts of Goa, before intervention programmes can be initiated.

Arz documents the phenomenon of commercial sexual exploitation prevailing in Goa in order to sensitize the various stake holders. The staff is imparted training to develop audio-visual aids like documentaries and short films with a special emphasis on trafficking of human beings for the purpose of sexual abuse and exploitation.
