Behind Closed Doors is an initiative inspired by the book, SEE ME NOT. An eight-year-old girl, Hann'Sha, living in poverty in Calcutta, India, and yet, full of hope for a better life, is suddenly sold into sexual slavery by a father desperate to feed his family. For four years she is forced to live a nightmarish life in sexual servitude. One day, an American tourist visiting her city, comes across the brothel where she is kept, and the horror of her circumstances forces him to take action. Against all odds, corrupt police, lethal traffickers and the young girl's fear, he fights for her freedom. Inspired by a young girl, and based on facts of what really happens to young children like Hann'Sha, this story reminds us that modern day slavery exists everywhere and is considered one of the most profitable illicit industries of modern times.
Many people have no idea that human trafficking is prevalent today, that hundreds of thousands of young girls, children and women are forced into sexual servitude and forced-labor, every year, by traffickers who are making millions of dollars doing so. The industry is now rated as the 3rd largest illicit activity in the world, next only to illicit drugs and weapon sales.
The problem is ignorance, and the solution is to put the issue under the spotlight.
Quite simply, we send copies of the book, SEE ME NOT, to non-profits, schools and institutions, at no cost, to help raise awareness about this industry of modern day slavery. That's it.
