WOMEN FOR WOMEN INTERNATIONAL: Starting Afresh After Years of Abuse

Women for Women International

Nabintu’s life was completely changed by the war and violence in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Married to a husband she loved and raising their three children, Nabintu was happy with her life, despite the conflict going on in their country. One night, while her husband was away, a group of men who were part of the Interahamwe, a violent rebel group, broke into her house, and two of the men raped Nabintu.

AMERICAN HIMALAYAN FOUNDATION: “Stop Girl Trafficking” Project Educates and Empowers Girls

American Himalayan Foundation

Against this backdrop of extreme poverty and gender bias, as many as 20,000 girls like Phul Maya end up trafficked (forced, sold, or coerced into prostitution or exploitative labor) every year, some as young as nine. Many girls are offered deceptive promises of marriage or good-paying work, only to end up trafficked to brothels in India or as domestic slaves in the Middle East. Others are even sold outright by their desperate parents. Girls from families with parents who are especially poor, absent or alcoholic are the most vulnerable and often go to “work” abroad and are never heard from again.
