Between poverty and the strength of the cast system in India, it has become a stronghold for human trafficking of all sorts. With that in mind and the hopes to steer India’s future towards a brighter path, Mission for Orphans is reaching the needy children of India—rescuing them from a life of sex and labor trafficking.
On this program of Finding Justice, we talk with the founder of Mission for Orphans, Gene Rumley:
From the Mission for Orphans website:
“Mission For Orphans is a grassroots organization reaching out, touching lives of orphans, street children and victims of human trafficking. Our purpose is to rescue children that are trapped in extreme poverty, abandoned, abused, and forced into child labor. There are over one hundred forty million orphans worldwide and over two hundred million children are in child labor globally. It is estimated half of the children are involved in the worst kind of forced child labor, such as child prostitution, hard labor in mines and stone quarries, etc…”
With the slum areas of Mumbai have an estimated 300,000 street children, Mission for Orphans could use your help!
