What is Aruna? Aruna, a Hindi word meaning “bright morning sun,” serves both as a metaphor for what could be for so many women and children who have been sold into the dark world of the sexual slave trade, as well as the name of an initiative in South Asia to bring an end to human trafficking, specifically in the area of sexual exploitation.
Run for their Freedom. Run to end sexual trafficking.
