Special Featurette of the Film Untouchable, Children of God
It is estimated that over 10,000 girls are trafficked from Nepal to India annually, cruelly driven over the border by force or lured by the false promise of work. The average age of a Nepali girl trafficked to India is 13 years old. A mere 1% of these sex slaves ever escape or get rescued.
Our film explores the stories of the people most vulnerable to human trafficking, the “Untouchables” of society, specifically the Badi people of Nepal and the Dalits of India..
The red light areas of India are dangerous, lawless places ruled by mafia and gangs. Despite these seemingly insurmountable odds, there are a growing number of abolitionists and social advocates taking action to help end this brutal form of modern day slavery.
Featuring exclusive interviews with survivors and those serving on the front lines, UNTOUCHABLE: CHILDREN OF GOD highlights stories of hope and the heroes risking their lives to rescue and protect these forgotten angels. Look into the eyes of young survivors as they share their stories and you will be touched by the untouchables.
In the brothels of India, young girls perish every day. Some die quickly from murder or suicide, others slowly from diseases like HIV/AIDS
