All she can see when she looks out are more brothels. This is her view of the world. This is her destiny, unless she gets rescued.

ĎAre you taking pictures to send back to my village? This mothers shame was summed up in this one sentence. Most women are forced into prostitution by poverty, some are kidnapped and cheated. Many are trafficked from over the boarder in Nepal. Once a prostitute, your future lies only in this midnight world.

Reshma: aged 6, sits on her bed which her mother will
use to service about 15 clients a night. Her home, a bed behind a curtain. A brothel normally houses between 8 to 10 women and their children. Reshma doesnít attend school but spends her time running errands for clients that visit the brothel. Sometimes, she just roams the streets, playing in the red light neighbourhood.
