Seven Sisters International provides holistic, rehabilitative care for minor girls who have suffered from trafficking and abuse in Northeast India. Our goal is to nurture and empower our girls to become resilient and independent women of courage, so they can successfully reintegrate into society and, ultimately, become change agents within the culture.
There are more than three million people in India’s sex trade and more than a million of them are children. Thousands of these children are trafficked out of the seven northeast states (the “Seven Sisters”) and sold to supply the brothels of India's cities. They are also forced into labor as factory workers, agricultural workers, beggars, and even into the circus. Girls are especially targeted as domestic servants where they are often severely abused and deprived of the opportunity to go to school.
