Slavery In Our World
Global Slavery Index (http://www.globalslaveryindex.org/findings)
There are an estimated 29.8 million people in modern slavery globally. The country with the largest number of enslaved people today is India, with an estimated 13,300,000 to 14,700,000 people in slavery.
Of these, more than 200,000 are Nepalese girls enslaved in India’s sex trade. Every year around 10,000 Nepalese girls, most of them aged from 9 to 16, are sold to brothels in India. Their plight is especially bad as they are strangers in a foreign land with nowhere to go and no one to turn to.
Parents sell their daughters and husbands dispose of their young unwanted wives for sums of between US$200 and US$600, in a society where a girl’s life is valued at less than a water buffalo or iPhone.
True Freedom for these women involves not just rescuing them from the sex trade. Tainted by the stigma of having been trafficked, these women are ostracized as Outcasts in a society still steeped in the caste system. They need to be given an alternative means to earn a living. Just as importantly, they need to be integrated into a safe and loving community where their self-worth can be restored.
