Founded by twin sisters Amy Kuruvilla and Lydia Muirhead, The Ruby Road Project aims to assist in the prevention and rescue of women and children caught in sexual exploitation and see them journey towards freedom.
They were so deeply moved during their trip to India in late 2011, where they met two young girls who had been sold into brothels as minors by their families. These girls had been through the most horrific experiences but had been rescued and given a second chance at life. After returning to Australia, Amy and Lydia felt so challenged to do something about the issue of sexual exploitation as a whole. A few months later they set up The Ruby Road Project. They believe that every single woman and child is valuable and hope that The Ruby Road Project can help see them embrace their true value and freedom.
The heart and mission of The Ruby Road Project is to raise the awareness of the issue of sexual exploitation and to support various global not-for-profit organisations working to combat this issue, whether that be through prevention, rescue, rehabilitation and/or reintegration.
The Ruby Road Project organise creative fundraising events each year to assist not-for-profit organisations by:
1. Raising their profile and existence within the local community
2. Raising funds to help further their impact in the local community and across the globe
Together with your support we can not only see these statistics drop but we can also see the lives of those caught in sex trafficking transformed for good.
