Globally, there are an estimated 2,000,000 children in forced prostitution. Human Trafficking is now the third largest international crime.
Trafficking in human persons is a $32 Billion a year industry. Because of poverty and other social factors, forced prostitution of minors is a widespread issue affecting every country in the world.
In India; an estimated 500,000 minor girls, or 25% of the global number, have been forced into the commercial sex trade.
The U.S. State department calls India the, “source, destination and transit” country for a majority trafficking in Asia. Thus, India is the central country in the fight to end sex trafficking.
Some girls are tricked by false promises of a good job or marriage
Their spirits are broken and they have no hope for their futures
According to the 2014 Global Slavery Index
Freedom Firm exists to Rescue these girls, Restore their spirits, and seek Justice by prosecuting the brothel keepers, pimps and traffickers. We labor daily to save as many of these lives as we can.
