Contrasting with India’s vibrant colors, aromas, and its rich cultural heritage are the dark industries of human trafficking and sexual exploitation. Economic hardships and the lack of livelihood options combined with an entrenched, oppressive class system leave thousands desperate enough to become trapped in–or sometimes forced into–the vicious cycle of sex slavery.
For four years now, we have partnered with Sparsh in Pune with the focus of investing in the lives of children of current sex slaves. We will also be supporting their various initiatives that provide hope for current women in bondage as well as holistic restoration to rescued victims of trafficking and exploitation and to drug addicts. We will be working directly with local communities and with woman and children in the infamous red light districts to bring hope, joy, and love while facilitating healing.
Leaders: Robert Arthur & Hana Viswanathan
