A few years ago we visited the northern part of India, the state of Uttrakhand, which borders Nepal and China (Tibet), where we faced a horrendous reality of enslaved young girls.

It is estimated that more than one million girls are victims of sexual slavery in Asia, and 500,000 of them are found mostly in India. It is also known that in Nepal alone, the trafficking of girls is between 12,000 and 14,000 each year and is increasing. Many of them suffer rape or for financial needs are sold by their parents to human traffickers, ending up in brothels in the lowest slumps in India and other countries where they are abused, injured, and forced to prostitution. Many of these girls that were sold are later found in Mumbai, where the largest brothel in the world possibly exists, a staggering estimation that is well above 200,000 women!

So years ago it was known that their average age was under 20 years of age. Today, it is calculated that their average is less than 14 years of age!

Sexual slavery is a multimillion dollar business. It is estimated that this illicit business generates about 2 million dollars in the city of Mombay alone, or about 700 million dollars per year! A business equally as profitable or better than drugs.

 «Speak up for those who cannot speak up for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.» (Prov. 31:8-9)

We cannot be indifferent to the cry of these defenceless young girls who are exploited and abused by unscrupulous men and women. We want to be their voice and bring them to justice with God’s grace. The project consists of 4 stages:

Stage 1: The Rescue 

This first stage consists of finding and rescuing the girls by negotiating their freedom. This is the riskiest, and difficult stage of the rescue. It may be required to infiltrate into the trafficker’s organization if the girls are not found or rescued before they reach their hands.

Stage 2: Shelter Home

In this second stage, the rescued girls are taken to our shelter home we have set up in the city of Rishikesh, in the state of Uttrakhand. This shelter home is strategically situated near the border of Nepal and China. This shelter will be transformed into their new home in which, a couple of firm believers in Christ, a husband and wife, are in charge and prepared to receive the rescued girls under their wings as their own children.

Stage 3: Reinsertion and Sheltering

Our first priority is going to be to teach them the Word of God, but in addition, each one of these young girls must be taken care of, educated, clothed, etc., and for this reason, we estimate the cost of sheltering each girl to be at least $25 dollars per month.

Stage 4: Adoption 

Our final ideal would be that after the girls reach a certain age, each girl may be adopted from abroad. We understand that while this is not easy, it’s not impossible either. We pray that our Lord may open doors in the future to be able to carry on this mission.
