Survivors of Trafficking in the Care of Sanlaap NGO., India

These photos and others will be displayed in the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy from Thursday, October 14, 2010, until the end of the semester (second floor, Rubenstein building). The Terre des hommes Foundation of Switzerland has implemented the exhibit through its office in Kathmandu, Nepal, by providing funds, support and expertise to the photographer Achinto Bhadra.

The Carr Center is displaying the photos of women who survived trafficking as part of a mission to focus on human trafficking and modern-day slavery. The Sanlaap NGO is a non-governmental organization based in Kolkata, India, that seeks to address the social imbalances that manifest in gender injustice and violence against women and girls. Sanlaap works against the trafficking of women and children for commercial sexual exploitation, sexual abuse and prostitution.

Achinto Bhadra studied photography at Chitra Bani, Kolkata, and at the London College of Printing as a recipient of the Charles Wallace Scholarship.
