ABOUT THE SANCTUARY
International Sanctuary works with survivors in aftercare homes and at the Mumbai Sanctuary. The Sanctuary is a safe and accepting environment, built around community. Through International Sanctuary's program, girls receive education, counseling, medical care, and employment, enabling them to create a better life for themselves and obtain true freedom.
At the Sanctuary in Mumbai, girls and women receive an education through The Academy. With the average education level being at an elementary level, The Academy addresses the need to make up for lost education. Since its launch in 2016, The Academy has made great strides to educate the young women in Mumbai’s Sanctuary.
International Sanctuary offers a prevention program for women living in the slums of Mumbai. Poverty leaves women vulnerable to being tricked into trafficking or being coerced into selling their children. As a preventative measure, International Sanctuary offers employment and trafficking awareness to this community. The women employed with International Sanctuary are able to provide for their families, send their children to good schools, and create a better life for themselves and their families.
Since 2007, International Sanctuary has served over 300 young women and girls aged 12 to 25 rescued from sex trafficking.
WHAT WE DO
Through a safe, loving workplace community, girls and women escaping human trafficking gain economic freedom, access to education, quality healthcare, and a place to belong.
