Gurbaksh Chahal | Let’s End Child Sex Trafficking. #BeASuperHero
In India every hour, two girls under the age of 15 are forced into sexual exploitation with little hope for freedom. The human trafficking industry is among the fastest growing criminal activities. In fact, it is a multi-billion dollar industry with complex global networks. Child trafficking is a serious problem and continues to plague the developing countries for many years. The trafficked children are often sexually exploited or sent overseas to provide sex workers or labor. These children essentially become slaves with no hope of rescue. Most victims disappear without a trace. This vicious cycle must stop.
Since 2016, through our partner network of NGOs, Chahal Foundation has collaborated to perform rescue raids, which has saved lives and prosecuted sex traffickers. These rescue missions are giving hope & rehabilitation to these children once again. These covert rescue operations are carefully planned to ensure the success of each raid. Planning requires our ground teams to collaborate with the proper law enforcement teams and assistance with the rescue efforts. Some rescue missions take weeks, if not months before the execution date.
To safeguard those involved, our foundation does not take or permit any photography of the children rescued or of our ground team involved in these operations. I, myself, was personally involved in one of these rescue operations. Regrettably, that rescue operation was unsuccessful. I can honestly say that evening was the lowest point of my life. I did learn these child traffickers are part of a complex larger network and that this problem is much bigger for just one organization to solve. This is why we have now created collaborative global NGO partnerships to irradiate child sex trafficking.
Each covert operations cost between $100,000 to $200,000 a mission. Sadly, there is no success guarantee on a raid – despite comprehensive planning. In 2017, our goal is to maximize as many raids as possible by providing qualified tips, intel, mission resources and mobilizing vigilant communities for our NGO partners. We are focused on eradicating child trafficking from our communities. We need to initiate more rescue raids this year.
Child Sex Trafficking is a global epidemic that affects more than six million children a year, with some becoming victims at the age of 9. These children are trapped in the darkness of humanity, and no one is able to hear them. No child should be exploited. No one should endure a vicious situation, lured by sickness and greed. Every one has a right to an honorable and safe life.
Every child’s dreams is precious. Every child’s life is precious. It is filled with curiosity, dreams, and a future of hope. Let’s make certain sick minds don’t take away these hopes and dreams. Let’s save these children. Be a hero in the lives of these children. Everyone needs a super hero in life.
It is far too easy to ignore this issue – because of the sick nature and subject being a taboo in many cultures. However, if we don’t rescue these children trapped in sex exploitation, then who will? Get involved. Contact Us. Let’s fix this epidemic – be it one rescue mission at a time. Let’s eradicate this problem. This is our chance to be a Super Hero.
