Sanlaap NA is a very important organization to help girls against sex-trafficking. I have been following some of their projects and very excited about the progress they have made with the shelters in India. The board members are very receptive to ideas and are always looking for volunteers who want to donate not only their money but also time. This is definately a charity to get more involved in.

This is a great organization, I am very glad that these group of people have been able to make such progress in a short amount of time. It is not easy starting a non-profit and the team has put in a lot of time and efforts to drive success. I attended their last event and it was very well-done, I look forward to working with Sanlaap NA in the future.

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!

This organization has the potential to make a huge impact on society. Sexual trafficking is a prevalent issue that not enough people have taken action to fix. Sanlaap empowers women and makes the world a safer place to them through various means. I wish them the best of luck in their endeavors and I hope to one day get involved.

Sanlaap is an incredible organization. This issue often goes unnoticed and it's wonderful to see people paying attention to it. This problem is pretty widespread in India, and needs organizations like Sanlaap to alleviate the widespread suffering.

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.

Sanlaap is an absolutely amazing organization that sheds light on human trafficking in South and Southeast Asia and that works extremely hard to help teach these girls girls skills that will help them to stand up on their own two feet to escape their awful pasts. Sanlaap gives them a new home and the ability to better themselves and to value their own lives. The video that was shown at the Sanlaap Event at 1Oak on 3/23/2013 was extremely moving because it shows how far these girls and women (who were previously in the sex trade) have come thanks to the amazing leadership of Sanlaap. In addition, the fact that 99% of the donations reach the girls and only 1% used for events is extremely impressive.

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.

This is by far one of the most impressive organizations I have worked with. Sanlaap members have identified a significant issue that has not been recognized as much as warranted. This is far more than your average charity; I look forward to helping out in any way possible to help reach out to the young girls in need.

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.

What is impressive about Sanlaap NA is that they have been able to use the great majority of donated funds to actually improving the lives of women who have otherwise been disregarded by their communities. One can feel proud to contribute to such a worthy cause when you hear the personal stories of those who have benefited from this organization.

The organizations hard work and dedication in raising awareness for their cause is something to be truly revered. Not only is strong advocacy part of the organization's repertoire, but bringing about positive change is also part of their agenda -- seen by the many girls that have already been given a chance at a new life.

Sanlaap NA is an amazing organization, making a real difference in the lives of women and girls in Southeast Asia. Unlike many nonprofits, Sanlaap NA only uses 1% of their proceeds towards expenses allowing them to make a significant and long-lasting impact in the movement against trafficking. It is inspiring to see such a passionate board and group of volunteers working so hard to further their mission.

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.
