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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Sanlaap NA is an incredible nonprofit organization that is shedding light on sex-trafficking issues and is making enormous strides in giving young girls a voice by providing education and the necessary resources to allow them to be independent and self-sufficient. 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 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.
