Girls rescued from sexual slavery sell jewelry in OC

As published by OC Register

Stephanie Pollaro looks a lot like celeb beauty Liv Tyler and has the heart of Mother Teresa. She had just gotten her master’s from Long Beach State when,  while lazing by the pool at her parent’s home in Fountain Valley, she spotted an article about the hundreds of thousands of children sold into sexual slavery in India. Long story short: Stephanie sold all her worldly possessions in a garage sale to move to Mumbai, 8 miles from the recent attacks, where she lives on $200 a month that her mom sends her. She spends her days teaching girls, 13 to 15 years old, how to make jewelry and then selling it for them, filling their bank accounts with money and their lives with hope. The girls were either sold by their parents or stolen from their homes, and then beaten, starved and bullied into prostitution.
