Read about what education means to the child survivors of trafficking at Love146.
Supporting education for survivors of child trafficking is a celebration of their triumph over all odds.
Their concept of education used to be that of children in their school uniforms merrily walking off to school or hopping on school buses, while they themselves looked on from their corner of the street, wondering if they would eat that day.
Education was simply beyond the reach of most of them. The search for food was their full-time and often fruitless preoccupation.
Some of them would go to school one day, “work” the next day in order to have fare to go to school the following day even on an empty stomach, only to be bullied in school because they were in rags, always sleepy, and unable to bathe. They longed for school fervently, but in reality it was more of a torture and painful struggle for children like them.
