October 9th, 2014 / 12:35 AM

Gang raped by 8 people at the age of 15 and many think this defines her, but this isn’t her identity.

She is Dr. Sunitha Krishnan an Indian social activist and co-founder of Prajwala.

She is best known for her fight against human trafficking and saving more than 10,000 (ten thousands) of lives who were forced into prostitution. She has surpassed all barriers of human courage and used her traumatic experience to define her path to bring victims of sex trafficking back to mainstream society. In the process of saving lives she has been attacked 14 times by criminals and left impaired by right ear but her determination got more strong with time.
Here is a chance for us to pay tribute to her work.

Dr. Sunitha Krishnan is selected as one of the five finalists for the Prestigious “2014 NELSON MANDELA – Graca Machel Innovation Award” ! The shortlisting of the finalists have been done by an International Jury!

Below is the link which will provide every supporter to vote for Dr. Sunitha Krishnan! The voting ends on 25th September!
