New IN860 (Miraj Red Light District) Kids!

For those of you hearing about the IN860 project for the first time, let me tell you a little bit about it. This project is located smack dab in the middle of a red light district in India. Many, many women in this community work as sex workers. They stand on the street and wait for men to come by and purchase them. Many men and older women run many brothels where these women work. Most of the money that is earned goes to the owner of the brothel and the sex workers themselves don't make much money. Most women are enslaved and even when they try to run away, they are caught and brought back. 
Compassion started a project here to bring hope to the community and to save the children. These children see things on a daily basis that we probably can't even imagine. Both girls and boys alike are being taught that there are careers out there for them that don't require sex work. Both girls and boys are being taught how a woman should be treated with respect and love. 
My heart just cries out for these children. Today, I received three packets of children in this project. I would love to see all three of them sponsored before these packets expire on November 2nd. 
To sponsor any of these children email me at
This is Yashmin. She is 6 years old. Her birthday is February 2nd, 2006. 
In her home, Yashmin helps by carrying water and caring for children. She lives with her father, mother, and one sibling. Her father is sometimes employed as a laborer and her mother maintains the home.
For fun, Yashmin enjoys art, running, and playing group games. She attends church activities regularly and she is in primary school where her performance is average. 

This tiny cutie is Manasi. She is 4 years old. Her birthday is January 1st, 2008. 
Manasi lives with her father, mother, and one sibling. Her father is sometimes employed as a laborer and her mother maintains the home. Manasi helps at home by carrying water. 
Art, running, and playing group games are Manasi's favorite activities. In preschool her performance is average and she also regularly attends church activities. 

This super cute boy is Aslam. He looks so sad and dirty. He's also 4 years old with his birthday on January 1st, 2008. (A January 1st birthday usually means the birthday is unknown, just the year is known).
Aslam lives with his father, mother, and two siblings. His father is sometimes employed as a laborer and his mother maintains the home. Carrying water is Aslam's household duty. 
As part of Compassion's ministry, Aslam partcipates in church activities. He is also in preschool, where his performance is average. Hide-and-seek is his favorite activitiy.
