3 teenage girls are safe

3 teenage girls were orphaned since they were small and never had the opportunity to go to school. As they grew up, they were successful in securing some work in order to provide for themselves but were regularly abused by the business owner. The girls were offered a job in India that included lovely clothes, great working conditions and good income. It was an opportunity they couldn’t refuse.

At the border, staff at one of the Captivating funded monitoring stations asked about their travel plans. The girls didn’t know many details about where they were going and after hearing about their vulnerable situation, the staff were convinced these girls were in the process of being trafficked. These girls are now safely working and are aware of the different tactics traffickers use to lure girls just like them, into the horror of trafficking.

Thanks to the watchful eyes of our partners, EVERYDAY, girls are stopped before they are trafficked.

In effect, these children are totally at the mercy of circus management who treat them as they please. This is how 2 girls were spared the horror of circus life.
