Young girls perish every day in the brothels of India, from murder, suicide and diseases like HIV/AIDS. It is estimated that more than 10,000 girls are trafficked from Nepal to India annually, cruelly driven over the border by force or lured by the false promise of work. They are forced to sleep with more than fifty men per day, locked into rooms or cages where they are beaten, starved, drugged, burned and raped. The average age of a Nepali girl trafficked to India is 13 years old. A mere 1% of these sex slaves ever escape or are rescued. Untouchable: Children of God is a powerful film that explores the lives of young girls particularly vulnerable to sex trafficking in India and Nepal. Join us for a fantastic documentary and discussion on human trafficking and explore opportunities to tackle these issues!

Singapore is one of the safest places in the world to give birth. But mothers in many other countries are not so fortunate. Please join us for the screening and discussion of ‘No Woman, No Cry’ this Saturday 21 March at 3.00PM at SIM University. This film is a powerful documentary about maternal health and the challenges faced by pregnant women in four parts of the world: a remote Maasai tribe in Tanzania, a slum of Bangladesh, a post-abortion care ward in Guatemala, and a prenatal clinic in the United States.
Following the film, there will be three speakers that will share more about the issue:
- Chua Yang, a gynaecologist who founded Global Clinic to help women in remote parts of the world,
- Arul Chib, a NTU professor who advocates for the use of mobile technologies in developing countries to improve maternal health and
- Bernice Wong, a photographer who will share insights from working on a documentary on maternal deaths in Cambodia. RSVP now!

Two remarkable political moments in 2015 have the potential to shape the environment on our communities for generations to come.
In collaboration with Social Creatives, volunteers joined us for a fun bonding session where they painted an action/2015 MDG wall mural and turned an otherwise plain-looking wall into a fantastic work of art. They also learnt more about ONE (SINGAPORE)’s campaign during the presentation after.
