Although illegal under# Indian law, human #trafficking remains a significant problem, with an estimated more than 18 million victims of #sex #trafficking in the country. A small but mighty non-profit @ArunaProject is helping to bring freedom to the #women in these dark places by creating opportunity. Through skill and trade development, counseling, on-going care, and full-time #employment, these women find freedom, restored dignity, a caring community, and great employee benefits. As a #business they produce functional luxury athleisure accessories, each product lined with the names of the artisans who helped to handcraft it. #India #slavery #working #humantrafficking

The #garment sector is of major importance to the #Indian #economy, affecting one of out of six households. Retailers from all over the world are attracted by the low #production costs, although most of the local #workers feel it’s impossible to make ends meet on the salary they earn, about $2-$3 per day. Small sweltering rooms such as this one in #Mumbai #India have cropped up around the country, where more then two thirds of the #workers are #women. This particular garment #factory is housed in a #brothel where the women find they can earn slightly more #income, about $2 for each customer they service. Tough choice. #womenatwork #humantribe @natgeoimagecollection

The Father #Woody cash give away in downtown #Denver, #Colorado. Father Woody, Monsignor Charles B. #Goodrich, was known for his generous spirit and before he passed away he felt that everyone should have at least a little cash in their pocket at #Christmas time. On this one day a year the homeless leave the outside cold to fill the Basilica of the Imaculate Conception to receive an envelope of two $10 bills. Why two? In case they want to share one. Afterwards they gather for hot chocolate, warm socks and McDonald's gift cards. The gratitude of everyone there was immense and a reminder that often so little can make such a difference in the lives of others in need. #Humantribe
