Girls are not for $ale

Trafficking story: Sujatha

When Sujatha was in Secondary School, she received a bad grade on an exam. She was too ashamed to go home and face her parents so she went to a bus station to run away. While at the bus station she was approached by a woman who promised Sujatha a job, one that her parents would be proud of. Sujatha believed the woman and followed her, eventually into a brothel where was forced into prostitution.

Trafficking story: Michelle

Michelle grew up in the foster care system in the USA. She never felt like anyone was looking out for her. One day she met a nice person but as she got to know him more, he started to get emotionally abusive. He then convinced her that the only way for them to make enough money to build a life for themselves was for her to sell herself.

Stories like Sujatha’s and Michelle’s are not uncommon. Do you know?

  • Trafficking for commercial sexual exploitation is the 2nd largest organized crime in the world.  It’s a 32 Billion dollar industry.
  • Every 60 seconds a girl is sold into sex trafficking.
  • 2 Million children every year are forced into prostitution
  • Young girls from 3-16 years old are induced into Sexual Slavery

 What is Project Roshni?

We are "Project Roshni", an independent support group of Prajwala. Prajwala is an anti-trafficking Non-Profit Organization founded by Padmashree Dr. Sunitha Krishnan(Winner of the Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela, CIVICUS Innovation, CNN-IBN Real Hero Award, Human Rights Award, Living Legends and Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Report Heroes  awards) who dedicated her life to rescue, rehabilitate and re-integrate sex trafficked victims.

Prajwala has rescured more than 16,500 women and children. Project Roshni conducts awareness events about Sex Trafficking and provides financial assistance to support the Prajwala shelter in Hyderabad, India.

How can I help?

We are raising money to build a safe emergency shelter for survivors right after they are rescued and a rehab unit for them. We also need additional funds for providing food, clothing and medical care for the survivors.
