The Stoplight Project

In the Perna Community of New Delhi, India, nearly 85% of women have been forced into prostitution. The Stoplight Project is a social enterprise that seeks to mitigate sex slavery by empowering women in the Perna Community with a sustainable job option embroidering tank tops to be sold in the U.S., as an alternative to working in the sex trade. We also provide opportunities for youth education.
