Seven Sisters International provides holistic, rehabilitative care forÂ minor girls who have suffered fromÂ trafficking and abuseÂ in South Asia. Our goal is to nurture and empower ourÂ girls to become resilient andÂ independent women of courage, so they can successfully reintegrate into society and, ultimately, become change agents within their culture.
There are more than thirty eight million slaves in the world today and more than half of them are in South Asia. The majority are women and children. Many of these children are trafficked out of poor tribal areas and sold to supply the brothels in large cities. They are also forced into labor as factory workers, agricultural workers, beggars, and even into the circus. Girls are especially targeted as domestic servants where they are often physically and sexually abused and deprived of the opportunity to go to school.
