About The Founder
Mrs Triveni Acharya, Presiden, Co-Founder
A former Investigative journalist, who took over the reigns of the organization in 2005 and has led the organization to where it is today.
Rescue Foundation, given the heinous nature of the crime it works against, was a result of the twin pillars of love and compassion that drove our founding members. Two events spun the wheels in motion, the first one was when our co-founder, Mrs. Triveni Acharya, who used to be an investigative journalist, was in Kamathipura (An area where children and adults are commercially sexually exploited) to cover the story of a prominent actor doing charity there.
She noticed a young girl sitting on one of the cane beds outside a brothel, concerned, she approached her and asked her where her mother was (assuming she was in prostitution).
The girl hesitantly revealed that she had been bought from Nepal and was being forced into prostitution.
Mrs. Achary was ushered away by an older woman, upon returning home, she recounted the story to her husband, the late Mr. Balkrishna Acharya, and even though they were infuriated, thought it best to let it go, but neither did.Show More
