Salvation Of Oppressed Eunuchs
A Eunuch (Transgender) in Indian Subcontinent (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Burma, SriLanka, Nepal) lives like a bonded labour from the day she is thrown out of her parents’ home and she joins a band of Gurus. This is true for all 2 million eunuchs in India. They started working for their liberation in 2007 when they came to know of this fact about this secretive community. They felt the need to let public know about the sad part of a eunuch’s life. Thus, Salvation of Oppressed Eunuchs (SOOE), was formed in 2011 with primary objective of bringing eunuchs of to mainstream of society and to make mainstream aware of this outcaste community; living a life of servitude since two centuries.
SOOE was formed with the primary objective of providing a platform for expressing and understanding the rather unique circumstances that eunuchs find themselves in, leading to the alleviation of their problems.
Though the activities of the group have continued informally through the years, a need was felt to lend a formal structure to their activities and as a result, a Non Government Organisation was formally registered in January 2011 under the name of ‘Salvation Of Oppressed Eunuchs’ (SOOE). The organisation aims to carry on the aims and objectives of the founder members and enhance its activities, while adhering to the principles of transparency and equitable development of the eunuch community.See more
