In a series of videos and articles CNN has highlighted the plight of girls growing up on tea plantations in Assam, India, who are targeted by human traffickers.
On CNN Freedom Project website it is reported: “Traffickers approach the girls as placement agents, offering them work in cities such as Delhi. Police say young girls see placement agencies as a way to escape the cycle, lured by promises of good jobs and a steady income. Instead, they too often find themselves sold as domestic labor and denied wages, or forced to work in the sex industry. Police say hundreds of girls in tea districts fall victim to traffickers every year.”
