Apne Aap carries on

Mon, December 12, 2011

Today a quick shout out the indomitable Ruchira Gupta and Apne Aaap who have been working to end sex trafficking for more than a decade.  When we interviewed Ruchira for Adventure
Divas- India she said :“What we want to do is actually eradicate sex trafficking and the exploitation inside prostitution...The good news is that the women are willing to fight. Six years ago, when I came into this brothel, they were so timid and they were so scared, they were not willing to even talk to each other. They did not let outsiders in, and today, six years later, you can see the laughter and the joy that they have.”
In honor of their first decade we’re highlighting an excerpt from that doc.
