Girija has a new life.

Your gifts provide life-changing opportunities for the women and children that have been trafficked into the sex trade. It is a horrible life and after a period of intense oppression and abuse people mentally normalize their behavior and escape becomes nearly impossible when they see no way out and life must go on. It takes devoted personal attention, by trained dedicated professionals to Rescue trafficked women & children in India.

Your gifts make this possible. Over the past few months 131 women and 124 children living in the Red Light Districts have been helped. Thank you for being a vital part of this work.

While there recently I interviewed a lady named Girija, she had been trafficked into the Red Light District as a teenager. She had been cheated, drugged and raped, then beaten and oppressed until she had no will to live.  For years she was trapped in the Red Light District a slave to the atrocities of those who would use her mercilessly.

Two years ago Girija was invited to our Drop-In Centre.  There she received medical attention, did group counseling with other women and attended reading lessons.  Slowly her self-image improved, she gave up trying to escape reality through excessive drinking.  She stopped believing the lies, and in time, decided that she no longer needed to be abused on a daily basis by those who despised her.

Recently she walked away from the trade.  Your support helped make the difference! 

Girija has started her own business preparing breakfast for people commuting by train.  She has less income than before but since she’s no longer trapped by alcohol, she has sufficient income for a simple life.Your sacrificial gifts make this possible, together we are working to Rescue trafficked women & children in India, helping these women and their children find freedom from the bondage of being trafficked.
