  1. Tiny Hands International is doing amazing work in Nepal fighting sex trafficking into India. My company, Reliant Studios, had the privilege of going to Nepal to shoot videos telling the stories of some of these girls. I can attest (as a vendor) to the good work they are doing!! And it was an amazing privilege to get to meet and talk to some of these girls!
