Sex trafficking in South Asia is a problem of mind-boggling proportions. One recent study revealed at least 2.5 million people are being prostituted in the region — many of them children. BGR partners in a major South Asian city are providing a transition home for girls ages 8-18 who have been rescued from brothel slavery. The Courage Home is designed to help girls start on the path of healing and growth for the future by providing holistic aftercare in many areas: physical, emotional, educational, social, relational, and spiritual.
A $25 donation will provide for a girl with a welcome kit, which includes clothing, hygiene items, and a comforting teddy bear.
$8 pays for personal items for one girl for a month (shampoo, feminine products, soap, toothpaste)
$24 covers counseling & medical care for one girl for a month
$80 pays one-time medical exams & vaccinations for one girl upon entry to home (distinct from monthly medicine)
$222 gives one girl education (life-skills, literacy, government curriculum distance learning) & legal assistance for six months.
$2,340 gives safe shelter (rent, 24-hr security) for all the girls for one month
Not long ago, Anisha* had an emotional meltdown. Though the 16-year-old was learning to verbalize her anger instead of throwing books and clothes, her temper still flared bright and hot.
At the age of 17, Noor stopped studying for her medical school entrance exam and ran away from home.
