I Still Need Over 150 People to Help Rescue Girls From Brothels (I’m Looking at You)

bravobutton2

Four national investigators.

Undercover brothel raids.

150 victims of sexual trafficking…rescued.

The team I’ve adopted (with your help), BRAVO team, is currently on location getting ready for a potential raid. They have identified the bar with 30 girls, 10 of them are minors. It is assumed that all 30 are trafficked victims. They are working with police now to plan the raid.

Friends, as of now we have 36 supporters, but we need 200 to fully fund this team in India. We need 164 more of you to commit to $35/month.

Here is where your money goes:

Investigator Salaries, full-time, four men and one director:  $2,500

Social worker salary: $300

Travel, Lodging while on mission (usually about one week at a time, 2-3 weeks per month. Team lives 6 hours from red-light districts): $800

Investigative Expenses: $1200 (rental car, camera batteries, drinks at places, “buying” girls, entrance fees, etc. for five investigators)

Food/ Misc. Expenses while on mission (5 men, two weeks): $200

Total: $5,000

Three Things Everybody Needs to Know About Sex Trafficking

Exodus Road FAQ

Bravo Team in India is composed of four national investigators operating primarily in a major city of India. This team, lead by a former-journalist-turned-abolitionist has rescued 150 victims of trafficking with The Exodus Road in one month alone. They travel six hours each way into the red-light districts and find underage victims in brothels and dance bars. This brave team has literally rescued dozens of virgins before they were sold. After gathering evidence through their covert cameras, they work closely with police to conduct fairly immediate raids.

P.S. If you become a sponsor, please let me know. I have a private FB page set up just for supporters.

    Bravo- Sarah Mae! Happy to sponsor team bravo and to be a part of an initiative that truly gives women the chance at freedom. Together, we can make a difference, be God’s hands and feet and show those who feel forgotten and alone they do matter and they are loved!

  • Greta OHalloran

    I’m on board, Sara Mae! I’m sorry it took me a month to ponder what should have been an immediate decision.

      Thank you!

  • Amy

    What happens to the girls after they are rescued? Also, I know two wrongs don’t make a right, but don’t ya just wish these guys were made to do the things they make these girls do?
    I want to talk to my hubby about supporting this team when he gets home from work tonight. This is something that I really feel if worth doing. Even if it rescues one.

      Amy, from the Exodus Road FAQ page: After-care is an essential component in the redemptive rescue of anyone out of sexual slavery. And while The Exodus Road does not possess expertise in wholistic after-care, we are networked with several facilities in SE Asia who do. When our investigative teams are involved in a raid/rescue, we try to immediately place victims into an after-care facility in our network. Ultimately, however, it is in the authority of the local government to place victims into after-care and there are often cases when victims are placed into a government facility to await interviews or repatriation to their home countries.

      Our goal is to direct a portion of our funding to the after-care facilities that receive rescued victims to help cover the expenses of that child’s placement. (We are also willing to use our network of supporters to fund certain projects/grants to after-care organizations in our network.) Eventually, we’d like to see a percentage of all donated funds going directly to quality after-care facilities.

    I just joined too. Thanks for giving us the opportunity.

    Sara, I love that we share this passion. So many thing are wonderful about The Exodus Road, and I am honored to be able to share about the great work they do just as you do

  • Anni Welborne

    I cannot help financially, because we have a special needs daughter, and our insurance doesn’t even cover half of what she needs. But I do so want to pray for both the rescuers and the rescuees.

  • Kara

    I cannot help financially (I so wish I could), but I am praying for this team. Thank you so much for telling us about this ministry!

  • Gem De Leon

    Brothels are illegal in many countries. It is probably the reason why people go to Sydney Brothels to party. I mean it’s legal there and most women enjoy what they are doing.

    Joined your team last week, although, I’m not sure I did it all correctly. Thanks for being a voice in this fight and encouraging women like me to do so as well.
