Project Report | Mar 4, 2014
New Year, New Life

By Bruce Moore | Field Director

Next month 10,500 girls will have a very happy start to the new school year because of you and Stop Girl Trafficking.

Education offers more than just learning: it gives young girls a chance to break free from a life marred by abuse and exploitation – married off too young, sent away to “work” or simply sold – and a path to a brighter future.

Early in the year, our local partners go out into the villages to work with teachers, local community leaders and alumnae to find the girls who are most at risk of being trafficked. These girls come from low caste communities that have been suppressed for centuries, from homes where a daughter is considered less valuable than livestock, or from families who are so desperately poor that they’ll sell or send away a daughter – with the hope her new “family” will be kind.

The causes and processes of human trafficking are complex, but our solution is straightforward and effective. Put girls in school and talk to them, their families and communities about the risks they face. Then tutor and mentor them through graduation and beyond.

On behalf of all the girls hopefully waiting for the start of a new school year, and a new life, thank you.
