4.5 MILLION
sex slaves in the world

40%
of them are in INDIA

MANY
are re-trafficked after rescue


WHY?
Because their minds remain in bondage
We are working to set their minds — and hearts — free.

An essential first step to lasting freedom for a child rescued from commercial sexual exploitation and extreme gender violence is to loosen the mental chains that keep her enslaved. Unfortunately, trained mental health and trauma care resources are under-resourced and difficult to access. The mental health infrastructure in the developing world is wholly inadequate. There are only 3 psychiatrists and less than 1 psychologist for every million people in India.

EmancipAction is working with the best minds in mental health and technology to develop a holistic approach to care that transforms outcomes for child victims of sex trafficking and extreme sexual violence in institutional care. We are investing in needed research and new technologies to establish the first evidence-based, affordable and rapidly scalable mental health intervention designed specifically for this vulnerable population.

HOW WE WORK

Innovate

We are working to establish an evidence-based, effective and scalable approach to mental health and trauma care, working with the world’s best minds, leveraging the latest technology, and ground-breaking partnerships to bring the best care to the most marginalized children.

Heal

We are training lay counselors and frontline staff to provide culturally relevant, trauma-informed and lasting mental health care. With appropriate psycho-social interventions, children can begin to see hope and the possibility of a different, radically-improved future.

Disrupt

Shockingly, most of the traffickers who are prosecuted in India are ultimately acquitted. Given proper care, victims provide better testimonies, convictions rise, and this "risk free" business becomes less lucrative.
