Stories from India

Jasmine's Story
Jasmine is a tenderhearted, soft-spoken young girl who has been raised in a Muslim family in the slums of Goa. While her appearance would seem to the onlooker like a typical young girl, an internal sickness prevented her from living a normal life. When we first met Jasmine, we were informed that she “had strange fits”, mostly likely due to an extremely contagious infection called meningitis. After consistent prayer, we were confident that God wanted us to be more involved in her life. For the past several years, Jasmine’s illness has caused her to be alienated from society. She was forced to quit school, and unable to apply for any work to help her family. It is common belief in India that the sick are deserving of their illness because it is a just punishment for their former sins.

The Mumbai Project

It is known as the “City of Dreams,” but for many Mumbai is the place where their dreams were shattered at the hands of an individual who exploited those dreams for a profit. Many women and young girls agree to leave their families and homes for the dream of a “better life” in Mumbai, only to find themselves at the mercy of traffickers and brothel owners in one of the city’s infamous red light districts.

Mumbai is a major destination city for human trafficking, with a large population of women and girls from Bangladesh and Nepal, as well as every corner of India. Far from family and friends, most of these women don’t know where to turn or who to trust, and remain trapped in the brothels of Mumbai until it is too late.
Rahab’s Rope began working in Mumbai in January of 2011. One of our full-time staff members moved to Mumbai from Bangalore and began building relationships with the women in two different red light areas as well and focused on forming partnerships with other anti-trafficking organizations. Through faithful prayer, hard work and dedication, she laid a foundation on which the ministry could continue to grow.
