We are fighting to put an end to human trafficking


Hey Guys,

As some of you may know, in August, I will be running a marathon in Angkor Wat, Cambodia. 

I am running and raising funds for a grassroots charity called Guria.   I will also be visiting Guria in September.  They are located in the heart of the red light district of Varanasi (Northern India) and are actively fighting in the war against human trafficking and child prostitution.

Guria is known for its on the ground approach and physically extracting minors from brothels.  Everyday they face significant challenges from the community. 

One of the unique aspects I find very interesting is their methods of rehabilitation.  They take a purely holistic approach and use education, yoga and meditation to heal.  A recent volunteer for Guria quoted the following about her experience with children's meditation: 

'I was puzzled that children born into an underworld of human suffering could still laugh and play with downright exuberance. The explanation came when the matron showed us the children’s daily ritual of meditation'.

Meditation for children in Guria could not be more different – to be present is to suffer the harsh realities of a life without family, freedom, opportunity or hope. As I sat and listened to the matron directing the fifty odd children sitting cross-legged, eyes squeezed desperately tight. “Do not be angry with your mother…You are loved…if you see someone suffering, help them…Now go far, far away…Keep going…Farther…Within ten minutes, they’ll all be asleep.”

You can find out more about the volunteer experience with Guria at:

Join me today in the fight against human trafficking and child prostitution in India.  Any amount will help support the efforts of Guria in their fight.
