Where We Are
Project Rescue began in the nation of India…
where extreme poverty, lack of education and value for girls and women create the fertile soil for sexual slavery. It is estimated that almost half of the 40 million “modern slaves” in the world are in India. The vast majority of prostituted women and children in India are trafficked from within the country, or from the remote villages of the surrounding countries of Nepal and Bangladesh. In 21 years, Project Rescue has established initiatives in 8 cities within these three countries.
The evils of sex trafficking in Eurasia have historically received a great deal of attention and awareness. But today, sexual slavery in Europe is growing at an alarming rate. The ongoing refugee crisis in Europe has created an extremely vulnerable population of women and children targeted by traffickers. Project Rescue initiatives in four European countries minister to those trafficked from Northern Africa, South and Central America, Eastern Europe, and most recently from the Middle East.
