‘Yoga, in the absence of social activism, in the absence of collective community and global transformation, ends up being self-absorption & solipsism.

Love without Action is Meaningless, and Action without Love is meaningless.’

– Deepak Chokpra

The Issue:

Child Sex Slavery

Why Sex Slavery?

The average age of girls being trafficked in Nepal is 15.

Many of these girls are forced to have sex 40 times a day.

This does not include the torture, beatings, and abuse they suffer and the enduring trauma they experience.

Due to the patriarchal culture in Nepal women are not considered equal to men.
