Restoration for Trafficked Girls
Minor age girls are trafficked into horrible situations in India. Tragically, sometimes at the hands of their own family members. These children suffer great trauma. Mahima Homes are licenced after-care facilities for girls that are rescued from trafficking situations. Mahima was started because many rescued children were being re-trafficked by the perpetrators. There was no justice for these girls. The criminals were not being tried, let alone being convicted. The staff at Mahima receive the girls straight from their rescue. They provide all the support the girls need to restore their physical and emotional well-being. And during this process they seek to put the traffickers in jail. Think of the courage it takes for a young girl to stand in court and testify against criminals or even their own parents who may have sold them into sexual exploitation. Mahima has a home for rescued minor-age children and home for older rescued youth. There is a transition home for girls reintegrating into society. There is a facility in the red-light district with day and evening programs for children of prostitutes, and their mothers. And there is a home for boys of prostitutes. In addition, the Mahima staff conduct anti-trafficking programs in schools and communities. Over 200 girls and young ladies have passed through the program. Some were repatriated to the countries they were trafficked from. And most are going on to happy and productive lives. We are proud to partner with the amazing staff at Mahima and this world-class organization. Our support this month will go to the care of these suffering young ladies
