About me

 

I like to run. I am not the fastest. At times, I may even be the slowest. But I run. I do it because I love to run.

I'd like to help. I'd like to help make the world a better place. I am not the best at it. At times I may not even be doing anything about it. But I try. I do a little bit because every little bit matters.

Together with people like you, we can do a lot more. We can inspire each other to move one step faster. We can hold each other's hands to move one step further in making the world a better place. 

I would like to ask your support again this year for  'Project Roshni - Bay area support group of Prajwala'…  because...

Every "ONE" minute a girl is forced into Sexual Slavery. And some children are as young as six months old.

This stat and many personal stories of little girls shook me up. Together, let's join hands in preventing the horrors of sex trafficking, the worst form of human slavery, from happening in today's world. Trafficking is the second largest organized crime and millions of young girls are trafficked across the world, anywhere from 3rd world countries to developed countries like USA.
