About the Book
Each year in Nepal, an estimated 10,000 girls are trafficked across the border into Indian brothels, where they are forced to become prostitutes. These girls range between ages 7 and 24, with an average age of 15. Most of the girls are poor, and come from villages, where they are lured by false marriages, or the promises of a job in the city. Many of them are sold by their families. They are usually processed through Kathmandu on their way to the Nepal-India border, where they face a very meager checkpoint. They and their traffickers are not required to show a passport, residence permit, or visa as they cross into India. When they reach their destination at a brothel in an Indian city, they quickly learn of their fate. In this book, learn what Tiny Hands is doing to fight sex trafficking.
Tiny Hands is a Christian non-profit organization dedicated to empowering the church in the developing world to help the poor overcome poverty and become lights of the world. We are committed to finding the greatest injustices in the world, and working towards relieving them however possible. We are particularly called to orphans, street children, and the victims of the sex-trafficking industry. We want to find those who are already doing the work, who are called and faithful, and help them do it in greater ways and with more efficiency. We do it all in obedience to, and for the glory of Jesus Christ.
