IN-860 is a project that is located in a red light district. This is a place where women openly sell their bodies on the streets for sex, often for way less than $1. These shops are big money makers and are run by both men and women. Children, both girls and boys are lured into working in these shops, through promises of money, an education, a good job, even sweets/toys. Some children are even kidnapped and forced to work here. Once a child/young adult starts to work in one of these sex shops, very little will get them out.
Compassion has started a project in this area to help those women are a currently stuck in this life of selling sex. The children in this area (often times children of the sex workers) are being rescued from this life and shown a better way to live. Compassion is teaching them hygiene, safety, schoolwork, and bible stories. Compassion is providing good nutrition, clean water, and free healthcare as well.

This project is truly doing amazing things in the lives of these children. If you choose to sponsor one of them, you are in for a wonderful journey. You will not regret it for one minute.
Today, I am going to share the girls with you. Girls are definitely more vulnerable in this community. Even though these girls are only 8 and 9 years old, they are already at risk of being sold off or even kidnapped into the sex trade. Compassion will truly change their lives.
This sweet girl is Prema. She is 9 years old. Her birthday is May 11th.
Prema makes her home with her father, mother, and one sibling. Her father is sometimes employed as a laborer and her mother maintains the home. Prema helps by carrying water and caring for children. As part of Compassion's ministry, Prema participates in church activities. She is in primary school where her performance is average. Playing with dolls, walking, and hide-and-seek are her favorite activities.
