7,000 girls

…approximately are trafficked into India each year. The total number is even higher. Today is the International Day Against Human Trafficking and our partner OVN is particularly committed to this cause.

Human trafficking or trafficking in girls in particular profits above all from the ignorance of girls. They are promised a lot of things, unrealistic things of course, and so girls from the countryside but also from the city easily fall into the trader’s net. OVN takes care of this very issue and supports girls who are in danger of being sold. In information events they are informed about the background and are motivated to take a different path in their lives. Concrete incidents are reported to the police and together they try to catch the perpetrators.

Many thanks to our sponsors, who help us and our partner to prevent trafficking in girls!
