Brief About Beed District
Beed has three distinct red light area namely Kaij, Georai and Telgaon where young girls and minors are present. The National Highway (211), from Ahmedabad to Hyderabad passes through Beed. This has given rise to Dhabas making young girls from nearby villages vulnerable to trafficking and sexual exploitation. Moreover, raids conducted in Mumbai brothels have revealed that a number of minor girls are from the district. Investigation into some villages shockingly revealed an organized criminal racket in Beed luring vulnerable and young girls into prostitution. There are instances of young girls being sexually exploited in Tamasha centers under the pretext of dance and entertainment. These girls belonging to the Kolati community are traditionally inducted into this profession despite their unwillingness. An NGO representative working in this area revealed that these young girls were shockingly ignorant about HIV/AIDS. Inter-familial sexual abuse is also very common in this district. Instances of incest, rape, and molestation by close relatives, fathers, brother-in-laws have been cited by NGO representatives. There is a need felt to disseminate information about women's and children's human rights to the community through awareness camps and crisis cells. Most importantly, economic and social empowerment of women and adolescent girls is the need of the hour. Another disturbing issue is the addiction of tobacco, alcohol, drugs amongst youth in this district. Small pan shops are suppliers of these harmful substances. Connection between substance abuse and trafficking is well documented and needs to be urgently addressed. Formation of youth groups, relevant vocational skills, health education, awareness of trafficking and HIV/AIDS is the need of the hour. HIV/AIDS is looming large in the district and HIV related deaths are regularly being reported. Large-scale migration of sugarcane harvesters on account of unemployment is one of the primary reasons for the alarming rise in the epidemic. As is true in all developing countries, women and adolescent girls bear the burden of the disease.

Survey in Beed
A survey covering forty-three villages with the help of thirty network members was recently conducted in Beed from June 21st 2002 to June 29th 2002. The aim of the survey was to gain insight into the trafficking problem and to help devise preventive programs on the same. One of the major concerns emerging from the preliminary survey findings is to address the problem of trafficking, migration and HIV/AIDS.
