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 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 NA is a great organization that supports a noble mission. I attended an event hosted by Sanlaap NA recently in NYC, and I commend the board members for their ability to generate such a large turnout to spread awareness for their cause. Human trafficking is a real issue across the world and one that doesn't receive enough attention. I highly recommend this organization for their dedication and I look forward to future events.

I had the pleasure of attending an event sponsored by Sanlaap NA, and it opened my eyes to the widespread issue of human trafficking. The stories shared were heart-wrenching, and have definitely peaked my awareness of this tragic reality. Saanlap NA uses the money donated to fund shelter, food, clothing, medication and education for women and children who are victims of trafficking. The founders are extremely passionate about the cause, and do a great job spreading awareness and educating the public about the injustice of human trafficking. I highly recommend becoming involved in this organization, as it serves to protect basic human rights.

I attended a fundraising event in nyc and Sanlaap did an excellent job in bringing awareness about human trafficking. I would continue to support this non-profit and I hope they continue to organize events that would further help this cause.

Sanlaap Na is a very inspiring nonprofit. I attended Sanlaap Na's fundraiser in April and was astounded by the creative yet hard-hitting video they showed in order to spread awareness about human trafficking. I want to start my own nonprofit because of them!

Sanlaap North America is a truly compassionate and highly effective organization. They are doing such important work by fighting against human trafficking and sex slavery in India. The organizers behind this wonderful charity are competent, capable, motivated and compassionate in their work and have been incredibly effective and successful in just their first few years of existence. As a donor I'm at ease knowing that almost all of the money collected (99%) goes to helping these girls through shelter, education and rehabilitation. I will definitely continue to support Sanlaap for years to come.
