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.

In just 5 years Sanlaap NA has made a huge difference. The organization has brought much needed attention to the sex trafficking in India and life changing resources to survivors. This is my favorite non profit because of their dedication, efficacy, and integrity. Great job everyone involved in Sanlaap NA and Zesa. Keep up the wonderful work. I will always support your mission. Thank you.

Last year, I started volunteering at Sanlaap NA and i got to see, firsthand, the passion and tireless efforts (from all the volunteers, especially the President, Sindhura Sarikonda) to not only rescue but help in rebuilding the lives and spirits of all these young survivors.

I never gave much thought to sex trafficking until I came to one of Sanlaap NA’s events, a little under 2 years ago. It was during the event that I finally got some insight into how serious this problem is, and how the plight of these young women in India needs to be acknowledged and how much their voices need to be heard. It was through Sanlaap’s efforts in which I was finally able to find a way to help these young women and knowing that only 1% of SNA’s revenue went toward expenses ensured that the money I was donating was going to the right place. The people at SNA are working tirelessly to bring light to such a serious and heinous problem in India and I know that this is only the beginning.

Sanlaap is a wonderful organization working towards a very noble cause. Sanlaap not only rescues victims of human trafficking, but also houses them and educates them in order to permanently change their lives in a sustainable fashion. This organization is making a huge difference in the most serious global human rights issue facing us today. I commend their goals, success stories and advocacy, and I look forward to volunteering for them in the future.

Sanlaap North America is an outstanding organization which effectively contributes to society. Its mission to fight against the trafficking of women and children in India is accomplished in numerous ways, such as providing education, shelter, and mentorship for the victims. Its ability to truly assist these women who are in need, make it one of the best non-profit organizations in the world.

In very large, developing countries such as India and China, people are more likely to be disregarded by their community. Sanlaap North America is making great efforts to reduce the number of women and children being disregarded by their community and used for commercial and sexual exploitation. This organization's dedication is truly inspiring and their hard work should be greatly appreciated throughout the world.

Sanlaap is a powerful organization filled with a team of extremely dedicated leaders. Their efforts work towards helping, saving and empowering women in Southeast Asia affected by sex trafficking. They are doing everything in their power to make it safer for thousands of girls and women to live their daily lives. They should be very proud of their efforts as an organization and continue to make great strides.
