I interacted with the volunteers of Zesa/Sanlaap NA on numerous occassions. I have also donated to the cause because of how touched I was with the work they were doing and progress they were making. This organization does phenomenal work and I personally hope to volunteer with them to help make a difference

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

continue to grow!

Sanlaap is an organization that strives to help young girls in India and protect them against the evils of the world. This organization should be so proud of the work they are doing and has come such a long way in a small amount of time. Keep up the amazing work that you do.

Sanlaap NA has come such a long way in such a short amount of time. I'm very proud to be a donor and advocate of their work. What stands out most to me is their passion and commitment to really make an impact on the ground, an impact that is felt and experienced by the girls they are working to save. I trust what they do and how they do it, which is particularly important for me as a donor. I look forward to continue supporting their work and to see how expansive they become in the years to come.

I am inspired and moved by the transformative work that Sanlaap North America is doing. Its commitment to save the lives of young girls forced into the horrors of child-sex trafficking in and prostitution in India is so huge and so palpable. Their work is transformative specifically because they are skilled in creating new possibilities for their girls and their lives. Plus, you know an organization means serious business when 99% of its funds go directly to the girls themselves! That speaks volumes. I've attended several fundraising events, and not only are they well-attended and well-organized, but they also do an excellent job in raising awareness within the general public about this global epidemic. I will continue to be a proud supporter of Sanlaap.

Sanlaap is an organization that touches the heart. It reaches out to young girls who really need help, youngsters in Calcutta that don’t have a chance without a home, the love, the care, the training, and the mentoring provided by his organization. Every fundraiser that I have attended has been informative and organized. I love knowing that the money I have donated is going to TRULY help women rebuild their self-esteem and create a better life. Sanlaap provides a second chance to achieve something they never thought could happen. I look forward to volunteering and hearing the progress of these beautiful women.

after learning of this organization in the past few months, i have become exceptionally impressed with their work in a cause that for whatever reason does not receive adequate attention throughout the world. it is not easy to recover from any sort of trauma (physical or mental), so i am very impressed by sanlaap's ability to positively impact the lives of former victims and help them return to normal lives.
