World of Children Award Rescues Girls from Forced Prostitution With Holiday Donations
Date:12/13/2013

(PRWEB) December 13, 2013

Every year, over 1.2 million children are bought and sold into sexual slavery where they are abused, sexually assaulted and denied basic human rights. This holiday season, World of Children Award is taking a stand against traffickers to protect every child’s right to happiness, well-being and freedom.

100% of every donation received during the holidays supports programs run by the 2013 World of Children Award Honorees, including Triveni Acharya, an Indian activist who has rescued thousands of young girls from brothels in India – often at the risk of her own life.

“So many children are in brothels and forced prostitution,” Triveni said. “I decided to work for them. For children.”

Triveni has rescued more than 4,000 children who have been bought and sold by child sex traffickers. Once rescued, she helps these children recover and begin to rebuild their lives. She will use funding from World of Children Award to rescue and rehabilitate more than 1,300 more children.

“These children who are crying in despair are so happy once they are rescued,” Triveni said. “When I see how happy they are to be free, their innocence inspires me to rescue more children.”

A gift of $50 is enough to fund the rescue of a young girl trapped in a brothel. Gifts can be made online at http://www.worldofchildren.org/holiday.

“There is never a holiday inside a brothel,” Triveni said. “To rescue other children, that is the biggest gift for me.”
