The Gendercide Awareness Project collaborates with nonprofits that work on the ground overseas with young women rescued from the sex trade or at risk for entering it. Our fall screening will focus on this subject as well. We offer two showings of The Day My God Died, which deals with trafficking in Nepal and India. See Information and Trailer.
These women once were trapped in the sex trade.
Now they are making baby booties for the Gendercide Awareness Project.
This is part of vocational training that will enable them to support themselves through sewing instead of sex work.
Their rescue, care, and rehabilitation is the work of Afesip.org, a nonprofit working in Cambodia. Afesip shelters 170 young women in three Cambodian cities. We are so pleased to play a small part in this crucial work!
