Help End This Dehumanizing Crime!

Help put an end to child sex trafficking! You can support 3 Generations as we raise awareness by sharing survivor stories and working directly with organizations that participate in direct service and advocacy. The fight against trafficking has seen some tremendous wins recently, with 37 states passing more comprehensive trafficking laws in the past year alone (polarisproject.org).

Our film TRICKED, which sheds light on the personal plights of victims and widespread sex trafficking in America, has been screened in cities across the country, the last one being Miami. But we need your help to educate and engage more people in this fight.

Just 5 donations of $20 will help us invest in the latest technology to help vulnerable survivors. 13 donations of $20 will be used to for special tools like hidden cameras to expose the dangerous world of sex trafficking. With more support, the more we can do to help end this dehumanizing crime. You’re donations and support matter to us; help be a part of the change!

Rinchen Dharlo's Story

Documenting survival stories on Tibetan refugees is one of 3 Generations’ biggest priorities. This summer we were fortunate enough to interview Rinchen Dharlo, a pre-eminent Tibetan refugee, statesman and current president of the Tibet Fund. We at 3 Generations are all grateful he has shared his story with us.

Rinchen Dharlo is the former representative of the Dalai Lama to the Americas and is currently living in New York City. Mr. Dharlo was born in Western Tibet near Nepal, the oldest of five children. In 1959, he and his family fled oppression from occupying China. While migrating around Nepal, they lived in tents or under trees, having to endure very harsh conditions while also stricken with disease. His mother and younger brother died tragically during this time.

Rinchen eventually managed to enroll at a school in India which the Indian government setup for Tibetan children. Unfortunately, he had to leave his family behind, but still tried to keep in contact with them as they moved from place to place despite not always knowing where they were. As president of the Tibet Fund, Mr. Dharlo now helps other Tibetan refugees retain their cultural practices and teach others about Tibetan culture and tradition.

Mr. Dharlo's moving story will soon be publicly available through our archives at www.3generations.org. Thank you, Rinchen, for sharing your incredible story with us. For more stories like this one, please consider donating to our project today. Every little bit helps when it comes filming, editing and sharing these stories!
