Sanlaap has a holistic approach to combat Indian sex-trafficking. Its mission spans providing health care, to changing social stigmas, to education, and empowerment. The organization focuses not only on rescue missions to save the women and girls from this dangerous, and unfortunate line of work, but it also has built a shelter in Kolkata that aims to teach 8-18 year old girls vocational skills in jewelry design and textiles. The leadership team of Sanlaap NA works tirelessly and frequents the shelters several times a year.

Sanlaap North America is a great organization with a great cause. As a male NYU student, I appreciate the amount of fortune I have to be in my position, and I am horrified to see the conditions of places where women are commercially and sexually exploited. Sanlaap North America fights human trafficking, and it not only provides shelter, but also teaches independence and freedom.

A great community dedicated to educating women and girls at risk to commercial and sexual trafficking. It provides the resources to educate women on being independent and influential voices of their community. Their efforts have made a significant contribution to the movement against trafficking.

Sunlaap just doesn't just provide shelter to victims, it teaches girls how to be independent and important members of society thereafter. Dependence is a large part of constant victimization and Sunlaap not only recognizes that, it acts to break that chain by teaching these girls skills and possible employment to support themselves.

Sanlaap gives hope and opportunity to many young women to better their lives. The hard working, motivated group of board members have done an amazing job, in a such a short period of time, giving a voice to this cause. I look forward to supporting future Sanlaap events.

I heard about Sanlaap NA through their project rehabilitation program which provides food, medical care and education for girls who were rescued. They focus on vocational training and providing the girls with as much as they can. It is also good to know that Sanlaap only uses 1% of their funds on operating costs and the rest towards their projects. Sanlaap NA has done a great job over the last few years and I am looking forward to see what other great movements they will make.

Sanlaap NA has done a great job in reaching out to the young professional population of NYC Metro area with their most recent event at 1OAK. They have been involved with the NYU Community and worked with multiple student organizations to promote and raise awareness for victims of sex trafficking. It has differentiated itself by working with the student population and create a movement on the metro and university level. Working with them proved seamless and it has been a pleasure, we look forward to future events with Sanlaap.

Sanlaap North America is an amazing organization with a great philanthropy. Sanlaap should see recognition for all the hard work and dedication the wonderful team have put in to help women and young children in India. We all have a busy lifestyle whether its school or work and seeing this lovely team dedicate a good amount of time out of their lives to help make a difference in someone's life in India deserves attention in my book!

Sanlaap North America is an amazing organization that is dedicated to raising awareness of the sex trafficking issue that is so often ignored. I recently attended an event hosted by Sanlaap NA. I didn't know much about their contribution, but after viewing an inspirational video, I soon learned how they are impacting the lives of so many young women in India. Not only are they providing a safe place for these abused women but offering them education and useful tools so they are able to find a new purpose outside of what they were wrongfully forced into. Being a woman that has many opportunities in life and education, I truly admire the work this team has done for Women's Rights.
