Dear friend,

Thank you for your help in providing children and women with a day of safety from India's red-light distrticts. Your gift is making a tremendous difference in the lives of women and children trapped in a life of sexual slavery. Over the past few months, 99 women and 169 children residing in the brothels were helped through various programs.

The women and children have benefited from safe houses, counseling, pre schools, remedial classes, medical interventions, feeding programs, fun clubs, and weekly gatherings.

Your gift is helping women like Jaya find freedom from sexual slavery.

Jaya was married off at a young age and when her husband died she didn't know what to do. Her neighbor promised her a good job in the city so she went with the man, but she soon realized that she was deceived. Her neighbor sold her to another man and she was forced to work in the red-light districts as a sex worker. Jaya soon became pregnant and her life was challenging. Customers would abuse her and the man she lived with would also hurt her if she didn’t bring home enough money.

It took several years for Jaya to trust our staff. They encouraged and counseled her about her child and her safety. They frequently helped her at the weekly medical clinics and monitored her health because she was at risk of contracting HIV. After much encouragement to leave the trade, Jaya finally left. She is now living in safe house and her child is also safe.

Today Jaya is in a better place because of you. Thank you!

Sincerely,
John Sparks,

Dear friend,

Thank you for your help in providing children with a day of safety from India's red-light distrticts. Your gift is making a tremendous difference in the lives of women and children trapped in a life of sexual slavery. Over the past few months, 84 women and 157 children residing in the brothels were helped through various programs.

The women and children have benefited from safe houses, counseling, pre schools, remedial classes, medical interventions, feeding programs, fun clubs, and weekly gatherings.

Your gift has helped many children in the red-light districts by giving them a safe and loving place to live, learn and grow.

This summer some of the girls in the safe house got a chance to attend a summer camp. After finishing their final exams in school, this was a fun way to spend their break. All the girls are very studious throughout the year and this was a fun way to relax after a rigorous school year. All the girls performed very well on their final exams and were promoted to the next class with excellent grades.

The girls enjoyed the camp so much and made some great friends along the way. The girls also got a chance to enjoy some time at a nearby water park. The children living in the safe house are daughters of sex workers in India, and they are all grateful for the opportunity to live in a better environment and pursue after an education

Thank you so much for serving children living in the red-light districts and giving them hope for a better future. Your gift truly makes a difference for children who grew up in such a dark and broken place.

Dear friend,

Over the past few months, 76 women and 89 children residing in Mumbai's red-light districts were helped. Your gift is making a tremendous difference in the lives of women and children trapped in a life of sexual slavery.

The women and children have benefited from counseling, pre schools, remedial classes, medical interventions, feeding programs, fun clubs, and weekly gatherings.

Your gift has helped many children in the red-light districts by giving them a free pre-school education and a nutritious meal every day. Children like Alok are doing so well because of your gift.

Alok's mother was a victim of the sex trade in Mumbai. She is a sex worker, so her son is forced to live in the dangerous and dirty brothels. Alok is a talkative and active 5-year-old boy. He used to roam the streets with nothing to do. After encouraging Alok's mother to put Alok in our pre-school program (called a balwadi in Hindi), he is doing so much better. Alok is also getting a nutritious meal every day. He is very smart in his studies and his behavior has improved greatly. Alok enjoys participating in special school activities and events.

Seeing the changes in Alok, his mother enrolled his younger brother in the balwadi (pre-school program) too and is very happy with the development of both her children. 

Thank you so much for serving children living in the red-light districts. Your gift truly makes a difference and gives hope to children who grow up in such a dark and broken place.

Dear friend,

This past quarter, 68 trafficked women and 81 children residing in Mumbai’s red light districts have been helped. Your gift is making a tremendous difference in the lives of women and children trapped in prostitution.

The women and children have benefited from counseling, pre-primary and remedial classes, medical interventions, feeding programs, fun clubs, and weekly gatherings.

Your gift has helped many children and one of the most important things it provides is a safe home far from the red-light districts. Children like Ravina now have promising futures ahead of them because of your gift.

Ravina's mother was a victim of the sex trade in Mumbai. After counseling, Ravina's mother was able to see the advantages of the safe house and agreed to send her daughter, Ravina, to live there.

Ravina is a bright and vibrant child. She is also very sharp and is good in academics. She has a hunger for learning more and enjoys her school. Although she is in first grade, she can read and write much better than the other kids her age. Ravina is living a better and safer place because of you. Thank you so much.

Rimpa has a brighter future because of you

Dear friend,

Education is so important for every child. Since the children of commercial sex workers do not have access to proper education, the schools that we established in the red-light districts are a big blessing for them. In the past quarter, about 90 children were able to receive an education in the pre-schools or local primary schools.

The children receive extra academic assistance for any of their classes. Many have shown great improvements in their grades after getting this extra help. 

Your gift has helped many children and one of the most important things it provides is a safe home far from the red-light districts. Children like Rimpa now have promising futures ahead of them because of your gift.

She used to watch pimps beat her mother regularly. Rimpa felt so sad living in Mumbai’s red light districts. It was a very dangerous place. The abuse—and exploitation—Rimpa constantly witnessed was terrible. When her mother was trafficked into the sex trade, seven-year old Rimpa became an innocent victim of the vile sex industry in India.

But now Rimpa is living in a better place. “I feel so safe at the safe house,” says Rimpa, who receives food, shelter and a quality education every day. She knows how to read, write, and speak in English. She’s very grateful she gets to live in a safe place. Thank you for helping children stuck in the sex trade!

Special Giving Tuesday opportunity! You can DOUBLE your impact for poor children in India today! Starting at 12pm EST, Microsoft will match your gift when you Help an orphan in India receive an education. Please consider giving a gift to another Global Giving project that will lift children out of poverty. You will provide an opportunity for a child to go to school and succeed. You will have DOUBLE the impact when you give right now. Matching funds run out quickly so give as soon as you can.

Sincerely,

John Sparks
