Challenge

In Southeast Asia, sex trafficking impacts the lives of over a 150,000 women and children, who are primarily exploited through the commercial sex trade. Many girl’s lives are decimated through the horror of being sexually, physically, and emotionally abused and they have no hope for a future. There is a dire need for quality aftercare services that can restore hope to these children.

Solution

Simply, by training these individuals, themselves survivors, in yoga therapy we are giving them skills needed to help heal others, give them increased confidence in themselves, and help them develop a viable vocation.

Long-Term Impact

Yoga is a powerful means of addressing issues related to trauma. By equipping former victims as teachers, we are placing skilled practitioners in the field of trauma therapy, as well as, giving girls a dignified and meaningful career.
