Her Turn Heroes

A group of dedicated girls made a huge difference today. We are so proud of the actions of one of our amazing Girls Support Committees. The risk of trafficking in the aftermath of the disaster has increased, and several days ago the girls in the Committee learned that two girls in their community were going to be trafficked to India – they recognized the signs and immediately informed their Her Turn mentor. We reported it to several anti-trafficking organizations and we have just received the news that one of them found and rescued the girls – they are now staying in a safe house. Their struggles are not over but we are glad that they are safe for the time being.

We want to maintain anonymity of everyone involved but would also like to let you know about the amazing group of girls who first spoke and acted against the horrible reality that other girls within their own community faced. Because of them, we have hope that girls will one day be educated, empowered and equal.
