Who are we?

We were founded six years ago in a dorm room at NYU. Today, we are one of the largest anti-trafficking organizations in Asia.

We fight trafficking in two ways: Our direct impact initiative provides immediate relief and our insight initiative aims to create change through advocacy and awareness.

A Survivor's Story

Sagorika is a brave survivor living at our shelter in Kolkata. She tells her story of being trafficked and shares her dreams and aspirations with us. This is a story of the atrocities of human trafficking, but more importantly, it’s a story about strength, resilience and new beginnings.
