No one has ever returned from India, unchanged. You’ll be immersed in a culture that awakens all your senses and gives you a powerful, concrete understanding of the justice work happening every day to fight human trafficking and the exploitation of women and children. Each trip to India has its own bent and purpose, but every experience will take you deep into the heart of others and give you the chance to be part of God’s movement toward radical freedom. (And this freedom awaits you, too.)

“India sparked something in me that won’t be able to be smothered. I see everything through such a different lens now. I am glad I allowed that spark to fan into a flame, a new life - the life that God has called me to live.”

Change that will last

We partner with organizations to build lasting and effective change.

JEEVAN AADHAR

Jeevan Aadhar (JA) is an Indian company with a heart. For years, JA has provided highest quality aftercare services for survivors of child sexual exploitation. Their philosophy is that with care, time and community support, these girls are able to recover and thrive – living full, restored, reintegrated lives. Their family style homes empower survivors to heal physically and emotionally in a secure environment. Now, JA is expanding it's work to implement cutting edge child sexual abuse prevention training through a partnership with the most successful prevention organization in the U.S: Darkness2Light. The United Nations recognized D2L's effectiveness in this field and now D2L and Jeevan Aadhar are working to "Indianize" D2L's ‘Stewards of Children’ program into the Indian cultural context.

MAHIMA HOME

Located in Kolkata, India, the Mahima Home serves over 100 women and children. Their aftercare facilities are designed for the rescue and restoration of girls who were trafficked as minors into the sex trade. The homes provide a safe haven where the girls receive physical, emotional, social and spiritual healing, vocational training and community, while the prosecution of perpetrators is aggressively pursued.

Mahima also has a home for children who are considered at great risk for being abducted into the trade. They recently launched an educational program to bring awareness of the dangers and prevention methods for violent sexual oppression. The goal is for this program to reach thousands of residents in nearby villages over the next couple years.

Nepalese Home / Apple of God’s Eyes

The Nepalese Home, in partnership with Apple of God's Eyes, is a Nepali organization that acts more like a huge family than like a charitable organization. More than 150 trafficking survivors and children at risk of trafficking reside together in homes led by second and third generation leaders, many whom themselves grew up in the homes. They have a school where the Apple kids can learn together with kids from the neighborhood and they provide educational scholarships in high risk, extremely impoverished rural communities to over 1,000 kids. Founded by Brazilians and run by Nepalis, Apple is the place to celebrate, to cry, to learn and to love!

Five14Nepal

Five14 is a Nepali adventure touring company who believes in responsible travel and believes community partnerships can result in a better life for everyone. Five14's team of Nepalese and internationals love adventure and the people of Nepal. They think everyone should experience the beauty of Nepal and bring hope to the people, while they are there. Five14 does this by taking tourism and trekking routes off the beaten path and through places which have been hardest hit by exploitation, disaster, and poverty. Five14 adventurers take home the beauty of the Himalayas in their hearts but leave knowing their projects and relationships made a real difference.

Freeset

Freeset is a fair trade business offering employment to women trapped in Kolkata's sex trade. They make quality bags, organic cotton t-shirts, and ultimately are in the business of freedom. Freeset is located in Sonagacchi, the largest, most infamous sex district in Kolkata, India. Within a few square miles more than 10,000 women are forced to sell their bodies to thousands of men who visit daily. Many are trafficked from Bangladesh, Nepal and rural India. For others, poverty has left them without options.

Since 2001, Freeset has been providing a sustainable alternative form of employment for these women. They offer skills training, employment, child care and a literacy program. Today more than 200 women are on the journey to Freedom through Freeset.

Justice Ventures International

Justice Ventures International (JVI) secures freedom, justice and restoration for the poor and oppressed by strengthening ventures that promote justice. India, with over 1.1 billion people, has a growing economy and a rich cultural history. At the same time, according to World Bank, approximately two thirds of Indians live with an income of less than $2 a day. Millions suffer from human trafficking and other extreme forms of injustice due to poverty, corruption, discrimination, and other unjust causes. JVI works with local partners to address these issues, bringing greater freedom, justice and restoration to the poor and oppressed.

FAQS

You have questions? We have answers.

What Work Will We Be Doing In India?

It depends on the trip. In the past, we've run camps and days of fun for survivors, done construction projects for freedom businesses, replenished supplies, deep cleaned/painted homes, and so much more. We do whatever our partners need, to assist them in the the arduous work they do on a daily basis.

What Will We Eat In India?

If dining like a local, get ready for copious amounts of rice, Indian bread (naan and rotis--think flatbread), vegetable curries, stir fry. Vegetarian options are always available. Red meat is scarce. Chai tea is available everywhere you go. While everything you eat will likely have an Indian flare, there are many continental restaurants with foods to satisfy a more bland palate. We always manage to find Western Style pizza a least once!

Where Will We Stay?

Generally, we stay in safe and comfortable western style hotels or retreat centers.
