Human trafficking in India, although illegal under Indian law, remains a significant problem. People are frequently illegally trafficked through India for the purposes of commercial sexual exploitation. Women and girls are trafficked within the country for the purposes of commercial sexual exploitation and forced marriage, especially in those areas where the sex ratio is highly skewed in favor of men.
JOYN started in India, in a small, sleepy village at the base of the Himalayas, with a mix of beautiful mountain people from India, Nepal, Tibet and beyond. People from many different backgrounds, religions, languages and cultures come together daily to create art, build community and live out their dreams.
Through its partnership with Joycorps, a U.S.-based nonprofit that helps fund community development, JOYN is able to provide its employees with steady jobs and a safe work environment, as well as a daily meal plan, education for their children, English and vocational training and medical care.
