Child 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.
Atira Tan, Founder of Art to Healing & Yoga for Freedom Ted X Talk on Child Sex Slavery.
In the past 2 years, Yoga for Freedom has
supported directly & indirectly
woman and girls who have experienced sex slavery, exploitation & abuse to have a second chance at life after abuse.
‘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
Sex slavery and the trauma endured by women and children is NOT OKAY with us.
We’re committed to supporting the recovery of these women and children!
