AlongSideAsia, Dave and Cathy Hicks
Freedom Firm, India is dedicated to the liberation of children enslaved in commercial sexual exploitation, their rehabilitation, and to justice against those who have profited from their misery.
Currently, there are an estimated 500,000 minor girls in forced trafficking in India. These girls need counseling and a strong Christian support network to avoid returning to prostitution. Uneducated and often considered ineligible for marriage because of their sexual exploitation, rescued girls are in deperate need of basic education, medical care, and vocational training.
Freedom Firm deploys teams of undercover investigators who identify minor victims. With assistance from Freedom Firm, the police raid the brothels and rescue the girls who are then placed in protective custody or are reunited with their families *(if their families are safe). Freedom Firm works to bring accountability to police and court proceedings as charges are brought against the criminals. Freedom Firm supports the girl as she testifies against her perpetrators. The goal is to send traffickers and brothel keepers to jail, both to pay for their crimes and to act as a deterrent to those who buy and sell children. Freedom Firm walks alongside each victim through the recovery process, providing counselling, medical care, vocational training, and support in a variety of ways, long after rescue.
