More than 1 million children are trafficked throughout the world each year, and 43 percent are forced into sexual slavery.The biggest difference between prostitution and sex slavery is this: A runaway may survive by prostituting herself on the streets of NYC to escape domestic violence and sexual abuse at home. In Nepal and India girls are physically forced into a building and cannot escape, because they have been literally sold into slavery and forced into this way of life. We have also seen others abandoned on the streets as young as five years of age only to be picked up by traffickers for slavery simply because girls are in demand. Every day our hearts ache for these girls and we desire to do more!
