‘We will never forget the moment Radhamma asked us, “Do you think any woman would choose this life?” We discovered that many women were trading sex in exchange for a bowl of rice to feed their children – not through choice. Her words haunted us for days. We couldn’t shake the feeling that we should be trying to help give these women and their children the chance of a better future – and Odanadi blossomed from there. We helped Radhamma to come out prostitution and gave her economical and moral support. She became a women’s right campaigner. Sadly, she died of HIV, but her work changed the lives of many women.
This path we’ve chosen hasn’t been easy, but the prevention of human suffering is a global concern – regardless of geographical boundaries, class, caste or colour. Our live has taught us that reaching out to another human being is the greatest happiness.’
