Plot / Description
This is is the School for Justice. Where victims of child prostitution are taught law so that they can become the best lawyers and prosecutors in India, with the power to put everyone involved in child prostitution behind bars.
India has the most underage sex workers in the world. 1.2 million children work in brothels against their will. But the people responsible for these crimes are hardly punished. In 2015 there were only 55 cases that led to convictions in the whole of India. This is what’s allowing – and will keep allowing - underage prostitution to happen, unless we do something about it.

"School for Justice"
I was 9 years old when I was sold to work as a prostitute.
I was tortured severely.
The perpetrators are not punished and walk around free. That's why I am still not free.
The School for Justice is a law school that will educate victims of child prostitution to become the most motivated lawyers and prosecutors India has to offer, so they can bring the people responsible for these crimes to justice.
We need specially trained people to deal with these issues, and nothing better than those who have actually gone through the trauma.
Girls who have a furious determination to fight, to demand justice, and to put everyone involved in child prostitution behind bars.
We are collaborating with one of the best law universities in India. The girls follow a 5-year education to become a public prosecutor. To give them the chance to get what they want.
I want to become a lawyer, because I want to fight against child traffickers.
I want to punish the men who did this to me.
I want to take action and fight back.
I want justice!
Please, support the School for Justice so we can educate more girls and change the system.
Around 1.2 million children are exploited as prostitutes in India.
They're forced to have sex with up to 20 different men each day.
On average less than 50 child prostitution cases a year lead to convictions.
How can we break this perverse and inhumane cycle?
