35.8 million people are victims of human trafficking for labor and sexual exploitation globally

80% of all human trafficking victims are women and girls

India is the main destination for children under 16 who are trafficked to South Asia

Bright Hope believes that equipping the local, in-country church is the critical element needed to combat human trafficking in India. Our church partners identify victims of exploitation, facilitate rescues and provide physical and spiritual restoration, education and job training. This network of Christ-followers desires to engage in a strategic effort to see victims rescued and survivors empowered with promising futures.

"The victims of modern slavery have many faces. They are men and women, adults and children. Yet, all are denied basic human dignity and freedom. Victims can be abused in their own countries, or find themselves far from home and vulnerable. Whether they are trapped in forced sexual or labor exploitation, human trafficking victims cannot walk away, but are held in service through force, threats, and fear. All too often suffering from horrible physical and sexual abuse, it is hard for them to imagine that there might be a place of refuge."
