“One’s life has value so long as one attributes value to the life of others, by means of love, friendship, indignation, and compassion.”
(Simone de Beauvoir – French existentialist philosopher, 1908–1986)

This is a picture of the first house made by Guria in Varanasi (Benaras) in order to shelter children.
Guria is a Human Rights organisation fighting against the sexual exploitation of women and children, particularly those forced into prostitution and trafficking.
Manju and her husband Ajeet Singh are running this non-profit organisation at great personal risk, providing shelter and hope to many children andfacing many difficulties from all those who would like to use those children as a second generation prostitution.
This house is located in the red area of the city, it allows the mothers to be close to their children.
I took this shot from the upper terrace of the new house which should be finished very soon.
This place is bigger and has a real comfort for those kids.
They already have lunch and dinner there.
This is a place of happiness and hope…

There are many ways to help and give a kind of support to Guria, this is its website, www.guriaindia.organd you may contact Manju and Ajeet at

Those lives have value, they belong to the future…
