Meet Gowri, a former victim of bonded labour. In bonded labour, the poor are lured in with job offers then trapped under debts they do not have the ability to pay off. They are forced to work under harsh conditions with little to no pay. Unfortunately, most workers don’t even realize they are being taken advantage of. This was the case in Gowri’s story. When Gowri was able to pay her debt, her employer trapped her with threats and abuse. This is when Gowri reached out to IJM who turned life around for her and her family!
