Our Mission

The Aruna Project brings and sustains freedom through employment marked by holistic care to sexually exploited women. In short, we free, empower, and employ. As a US non-profit, we mobilize thousands across the US in Aruna Runs to raise awareness and to raise money to aid in the freedom process. Our Indian Private Limited Company (owned by the Aruna Project) then empowers and employs those set free to provide them a bright future of lifelong freedom.

Aruna Project is a 501(c)(3) organization. Our work to bring and sustain freedom to the sexually enslaved would not be possible without the commitment and generous donations of supporters.
