More than 18 million people (1.4% of India's population) live in slavery.
The Reshma Project aims to connect sponsors to women who are a life of objectification. This allows for each sponsor to invest in a specific woman’s journey to sustainable freedom, based on her individual needs.
We hope to instill in each woman a sense of dignity, hope, identity, and ultimately partner with her in attaining physical, emotional, and spiritual freedom.
The vision of the Reshma Project is to expose the darkness of sex trafficking, to empower the enslaved to escape bondage, and to enrich their life and self with dignity.
How we do it
The sponsorship will see each woman through 3 separate phases.
First, she will move into a restoration home and live with other women transitioning into freedom. There she will begin to learn a skill, receive counseling, and set goals for herself.
