Seven Sisters International provides holistic, rehabilitative care for minor girls who have suffered from trafficking and abuse in South Asia. 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 their culture.
There are more than thirty eight million slaves in the world today and more than half of them are in South Asia. The majority are women and children. Many of these children are trafficked out of poor tribal areas and sold to supply the brothels in large 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 physically and sexually abused and deprived of the opportunity to go to school.
