PRC’s rehabilitation program is designed to be one year. Some girls are ready to leave before that year is finished and others may need to stay longer due there not being a safe and stable family environment to which they can return. The latter has been the case for Namrita and Sarada who have been at PRC for over two years. Their families had been slave laborers in the Kamaiya system and since being set free have found it very difficult to eke out a living. This state of poverty is the reason these two girls were easy prey for sex traffickers. To look at them now you would find it difficult to imagine the pain and terror that once dominated their lives. The girls have thrived at the Center and their smiles could light up the world! The question is how long do they stay at PRC? Since Sarada has been at PRC a younger brother fell from a tree to his death. The family is now saying that if Sarada had been home watching the boy he would have not had the accident. They want her to come home to take care of her other younger siblings so both parents can work as day laborers in the area. Namrita’s parents also want her to return home for the same purpose. PRC must follow the wishes of the parents and send the girls back home if that’s what they want. Shanta has tried reasoning with the parents saying that if the girls finish their schooling they could get better jobs and eventually help the family in that way. This line of far thinking is difficult to follow when you feel a prisoner of the immediate. They cannot see past finding a way to feed their family TODAY. One thing I know is the LORD loves them and holds their future in His hands. HE is with them at the Center and will be with them if they return to their families. Please pray the Lord will have his way in determining their future.
