At 11, organised criminal networks trafficked Ella Sangma to Delhi, to commercially exploit her. She endured violence and abuse daily before being rescued by the police. Her harrowing story is the story of hundreds of thousands across South Asia who end being trafficked, abused and commercially exploited every year, joining the 8 million estimated to be living in slavery across the region.

Today, Ella has joined the fight against human trafficking at Impulse NGO Network , a non-profit working across countries in South Asia. They work with the police by using both technology and partnerships to both prevent people being trafficked in the first place, rescue those trafficked and being exploited, assist the prosecution in convicting the perpetrators and work with survivors and vulnerable communities by using social enterprise to addresses the root causes of trafficking by creating livelihood opportunities for rural communities by using their artisanal skill to create handicrafts for the local and International markets.  

Could the road to ending unsafe migration and human trafficking begin with empowering women? Learn more about how Impulse is working to make this vision a reality, and how you can support this journey.
