...of modern day abolitionists to fight the human rights issue of our life time...
Stop Trafficking – is the brainchild of Kindled Spirit who wish to tackle this problem from both ends of the spectrum by organising major, physically challenging fundraising events designed to raise awareness and help support our charitable work.
Kindled Spirit focus on funding organisations, primarily in India, who support the survivors of trafficking having been rescued from their captors and illegal employers. We also work with other organisations that employ schooling and education as a preventative measure. It is estimated that 120,000 children are trafficked in India each year, either from the poorest rural areas of India or from Nepal. More than 50% of those children trafficked end up in the commercial sex industry – they are typically between 9–14 years of age. Currently Kindled Spirit is working with a Mumbai based charity called Kshamata to support the rehabilitation of trafficked survivors, primarily from the commercial sex industry.
