Transition house

Our main campus facility cares for minors under the age of 18. Our community becomes their family and their support system as they grow up, helping them to regain their confidence and to learn transferable life-skills. Once a girl turns 18, however, the Indian government mandates that she must move from our main campus facility.

Our support doesn’t end there, however. Our girls are given the option to relocate to our Transition House for up to three years. The Transition House has less direct supervision and formal structure than our facility for younger girls but it remains a safe living environment where the girls, now young women, can continue to learn and develop important life skills. The girls can take on more responsibility for their own care here and have greater interaction with the local community. A house mother resides with the girls in the Transition House and therapy and/or medical care continues to be provided as needed.

We opened our Transition House in 2021 and it is currently home to 12 girls. It has the capacity to house 20, and we are anticipating filling this in the coming years as girls continue their recovery.

Many of our Transition House girls are putting the business and entrepreneurial skills imparted to them from the team at Neema Development to use in the real world, managing their own independent sewing and food businesses amongst others.

One of the saddest realities for victims of human trafficking is that they become repeat victims. Our Transition House is a testament to our commitment to prevent this and to provide our girls with the best chance for a dignified future. When we welcome girls into New Horizons House, we are welcoming them into our family and promising them a support network that they will have forever.
