Rescue and Rehabilitation: Rescued over 400 girls, most of them minors, from the clutches of the flesh traffickers in various parts of Karnataka. With a special focus on Mysore, Odanadi has gone a long way in eradicating the social stigma attached to the prostituted and in sensitising the mainstream society. As many as 22 women were married through widely publicised exercises in the presence of leading personalities. Organised the prostituted into a vocal and powerful group, the Vimochana Mahila Sangha, with the strongest being the Mysore group numbering 1020. As many as 350 women have been rehabilitated with alternative livelihood in the mainstream society. Established a very successful permanent residential school and rehabilitation centre ['Prayoga Patha'] for the children of the exploited women in 1995 in partnership with CRY [Child Relief and You]. As of this writing, the Prayoga Patha is providing shelter, education and vocational training to more than 75 children. Odanadi operates a counselling and trauma care centre for women of various strata afflicted by marital discord and social problems.
