The Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya boarding school saves young girls from sex trafficking at Simraha, Bihar, India. These girls are daughters of prostitutes and from very marginalized low caste Nat community. They are getting an education to break the system of hereditary prostitution. Education helps them break the awful cycle of sex-trafficking, which Apne Aap NGO manages and supported by the Bihar Government. The school keeps the girls safe and away from the home-based brothels they were growing up in; otherwise, they would join their mothers in prostitution.
