THE STORY:

BOMBAY TEEN CHALLENGE wrote -

THE HORROR

Kamathipura is a maze of buildings originally created by the British for reasons best left to our imaginations. While independence did come to India, hundreds and thousands of girls are yet to find freedom from the bondage of sex trafficking. The tragedy of which is disguised in the normalcy of its bustling streets. But above the shops are an array of windows framing the faces of women lost without hope, as they appear and disappear like fading portraits. It is behind these innocuous walls, girls are ‘broken in’ like animals and locked in tiny dark cells for many years, the doors open only to those who perpetrate this evil. Kamathipura is a microcosm of what is a rising global phenomenon of sexual slavery.

THE HOPE

Bombay Teen Challenge has been working in this district for the past twenty years, rescuing and restoring broken lives.

This January, RA Dickey, a pitcher for the New York Mets will be partnering with Bombay Teen Challenge to end human trafficking in Mumbai, India. 

He will be climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro to help raise $100,000 for the work that Bombay Teen Challenge does in the Red Light Districts (read more).

HOW YOU CAN HELP

With $100,000, Bombay Teen Challenge will be able to purchase a health clinic right in the heart of the red light district. This will allow thousands of women living in the brothels to become introduced to Bombay Teen Challenge and ultimately, have a chance at freedom.

But we need your help. Contribute and tell your friends to join us in the great move to set beautiful free!
