“In India around 1.2 million children are exploited as prostitutes. in 2015 only 55 cases led to convictions for these crimes.“
India has the most underage sex workers in the world with an estimated 1.2 million children working in brothels against their will. Yet, in 2015 there were only 55 cases that led to convictions in the whole of India. The fact that the perpetrators are not punished is what’s allowing – and will keep allowing – underage prostitution to happen.
We have founded the School for Justice to break this cycle. The School for Justice is an institution where girls rescued from child prostitution will be educated to become lawyers and prosecutors with the power to prosecute the criminals who once owned them.
The School for Justice is more than a physical school; it’s an entire programme. We’re collaborating with one of the best law universities in India to guarantee a first-rate education and the opportunity to become successful lawyers.
For safety reasons, we cannot use the full names of the girls nor can we name the university with which we are collaborating.
