Many young girls are duped into accompanying men who take them to the so-called, city of many opportunities and sell them to brothels.

Prema Touch, an amazingly powerful all-natural soap making company is on a big mission. Founder of Prema Touch, Josephine works on a mission to bring back trafficked Nepalese sex slaves and give them a better life of dignity, work and respect.

Maiya, one of the saved sex slaves, who is now a supervisor at Prema Touch decided to come out and shared her story to give more women the power and strength to come out and join Josephine to have a life full of love, respect and dignity. Here’s her sensitive and powerful story.

Maiya entered the horrible world of sex trade at the age of 13.


How she ended up at Sonagachi- red light area, Kolkata?

She was given some clothes and big sandals to wear which did not even fit her. She was told to work as one of the women in the brothel. She was small and her home was very far, she could not run away.

Maiya was free after 5 years but she had nowhere to go and work. People refused to give her work because she could not read and write.
