Challenge

There are an estimated 1.2 million children exploited in commercial sexual exploitation in India. Most of the girls who end up in commercial sexual exploitation in India come from India itself. Although regional data is absent, various studies reveal that most child victims (under 18 years old) in Asia are girls between the ages 14 and 17.

Solution

Free a Girl believes education is a fundamental right of all girls as well as a key prevention strategy for protecting vulnerable girls from exploitation and violence. Education is also crucial in the rehabilitation and reintegration process for victims of commercial sexual exploitation.

Long-Term Impact

Through enabling access to education and other vital support services, Free a Girl aims to contribute to the long-term improvement and transformation of girls' lives.
