Modern slavery is one of the most horrific and dehumanizing crimes taking place today. But it can be stopped with the right kind of intervention.
In September 2020 WIN's anti-trafficking coordinator in India was investigating a children's home which she suspected had been trafficking young girls. There she met a girl named Hope (name changed for security). Hope realized that our coordinator really cared about her and was there to help her. So she opened-up her heart. Hope revealed the dark secret that for months she had no one to tell; she was being tortured and abused!
Our coordinator and her team meticulously planned-out a raid with the objective of rescuing Hope and all of the girls from the bogus “children's home”. Thanks to the dedication of our team and the local authorities, and after hours of struggling with the traffickers, the police and our team prevailed: 21 girls were rescued!

WIN’s drama team travels village to village warning how traffickers trick villagers with the pretext of marrying their daughters to rich, unknown individuals in big cities. Such “marriages” are only a trap. These “brides” find themselves in brothels. The drama team also teaches against other moral evils such as alcoholism and domestic abuse.
