Encountering the Front Lines of the Fight Against Human Trafficking in India

India trafficking activism travel program

Crooked Trails has worked to bring awareness and understanding to the fight against human trafficking since 2000. Our work in this field continues next September on a trafficking-focused India trafficking activism travel programtravel program to Mumbai, India where we will meet with organizations and individuals on the front lines of this battle. First is the International Justice Mission (IJM), who have been fighting for the legal rights of persecuted peoples around the world. Rescuing slaves from brothels is one of the many things they do. IJM also partners with other organizations which offer rescued girls a safe haven. On this program, we will also meet with the Rescue Foundation who conduct rescue missions into the brothels.

Our goal in Mumbai is to raise travelers’ awareness about the issues surrounding human trafficking and to help raise funds to support the organizations we are meeting with. All participants are asked to raise funds that will support those we meet. Knowing we cannot work directly with the rescued girls, we are going to offer a day of support for the staff that is in the field – care-giving for the caregivers, as it were. We are currently accepting applications for this program, which runs September 16 – 23, 2018. Learn more about this program here.

Following the main program in Mumbai, participants are encouraged to sign up for the optional extension to the famed Golden Triangle, including Jaipur, Delhi, and the Taj Mahal. Join us for an inspirational trip with meaning lead by Crooked Trails Co-Founder Christine Mackay.
