2 girls spared from the horror of circus life

Many children are tricked with lies about joining the circus. Most people would think the circus would be a fun place to live, but once in the circuses in India, children often live in squalor and are never allowed to leave the circus compound. They are routinely beaten in order to teach them the difficult and dangerous tricks, and sexual abuse is commonplace. 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.

Lumotar's life changing opportunity

"I am currently the main chef at a little kitchen. The owner found that I am the best cook in the restaurant. The customers enjoy my food and always give me compliments on my cooking skills. At first I was nervous because I have never worked in such a professional environment before but I am now full of confidence that I have my very first long term, stable job. I am so happy with my life now and I could not believe that all happened to me. Without your support I would not have had this life changing opportunity."
