Baina beach goa prostitution

The state government is of the view that the families staying in Baina beach indulge in prostitution disturbing the local social fabric.

Further, the government contended that the piece of land on which the houses are located is unsafe and prone to natural disasters.

The history of prostitution in Goa dates back to the late 16th and 17th centuries when Goa was a Portuguese colony.

Project Description Arz started its first project in 1998 in Goa on issues connected with trafficking of humans for the purposes of prostitution.

Arz works not only with the victims of prostitution but also with those who are perpetrators of prostitution.

As many as 500 Kannadigas have been thrown to the streets in Goa after the government razed their huts allegedly built without permission at the Baina beach.

The Goa government has demolished 157 huts, which had come up at the Baina beach in the last 10 years.

Arz was conceived in 1997 by a small but committed group of Development Professionals from Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Bombay, with the idea of social work interventions in the area of crime with persons who have committed crimes, have been victims of crime or those who are vulnerable to either.
