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.

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.

I was introduced to the organization earlier this year and have been continuously impressed with the dedication of the volunteers and the ingenuity of planned initiatives and events. Not all organizations take the time and effort to be transparent about the beneficiaries of their work, and representatives of Sanlaap have always been happy to share this information with me. Well done!

I'm so impressed by the work that Sanlaap North America is doing through Zesa. I bought one of their bracelets from the Brooklyn Bazaar a few months ago. It was beautiful and I was happy to support an organization that trains women in need and pays a fair wage.

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 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.

Sanlaap is an amazing organization that really sheds light on an issue that doesn't get enough attention. The board has worked really hard on raising awareness of the reality of human trafficking and has worked extremely hard to raise enough money to make real changes in these women's lives. I commend you on all the hard work you guys put into this organization.

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.

Sanlaap NA is a moving and dedicated charitable organization. The board members have been so thoroughly proactive in promoting their cause to fight against sex trafficking and their passion clearly shows through their efforts. I believe their attitudes and actions will be a clear motivator for others to participate and dedicate their time to this cause. I look forward to donating to this charity now and in the future.
