Why We Do What We Do

Why We Do What We Do

Every day, approximately two hundred girls and women in India are forced into prostitution. Many of these women enter the world of prostitution at a very young age. Sold or kidnapped into the sex trade, a life of prostitution in India can begin as early as age five. On average, a prostitute in India is between fifteen and thirty-five years old. According to Human Rights Watch, there are approximately fifteen million prostitutes in India. Women held captive by the sex industry are beaten, raped, and made to believe that their only real value is the price that their body will bring. By their late teens, many of these women are considered "used up" and are cast out onto the streets to survive on their own. With little to no skill sets and little to no money to their names, many women faced with life on the streets return to prostitution as a means of survival.

This is why we do the work that we do.

By providing education and training as well as food, shelter, and protection, we provide a way out for many women made victim by the sex industry in India. Our mission includes working with women currently held captive by the sex trade, working with women who find themselves on the streets with nowhere else to turn, and working with young girls who are at risk for falling victim to a life of forced prostitution.

We are committed to being the hands and feet of Jesus as we reach out to fight for and protect those who are unable to fight for and protect themselves.
