This is a program that is a nonprofit agency whose mission is to fight slavery and other human rights abuses with employment, education, and empowerment.  The run programs in India, Nepal, Cambodia, Bangladesh, and Thailand.
They partner with other agencies in Fiji and Ghana. Many of the women are survivors of slavery, child marriage or child labor.  Others were born in brothels or victims of extreme poverty or a disability which puts them at a higher risk for being trafficked into slavery.
 The statistics are staggering with 27 million people enslaved in the world today and 200 million children involved in child labor( according to the organization).
