This year we are trying to raise $100,000 to fund rescue missions and rehabilitation for the victims of sex trafficking around the world.
WILL YOU HELP?
Every year, over a million women and children will be sold into this horrific industry where girls as young as 2 years old are being pulled from brothels. These Women and children have no real support system on the outside, making escape or rescue almost impossible. Our goal is to make sure that no woman or child ever reaches out for help and can not receive it due to lack of funding or awareness.
This year we are supporting three amazing charities that are leading the way in the battle against Sex trafficking:
NEW LIGHT: Led by Urmi Basu, New light was created for the protection and education of victims of trafficking, women in prostitution, and children rescued from the red light areas.
Also, New Light is creating safe havens, education, and a loving environment for the children of sex workers, breaking the chain and giving these children a future (INDIA)
Maiti Nepal. Led by Anuradha Koirala, MAITI Nepal was born out of a crusade to protect Nepali women and girls from crimes like domestic violence, trafficking for flesh trade, child prostitution, child labor and various forms of exploitation and torture. Maiti Nepal has three prevention homes, nine transit homes, two hospices and a high school.
AFESIP. AFESIP Cambodia works to care for and secure the rights of those victimized by human trafficking and sex slavery, and to successfully rehabilitate and reintegrate survivors into mainstream society through financial independence in a sustainable and innovative manner.
