Stories From India

There are more children in the sex-traffic slavery in India than Ireland has children! Quite a shocking statistic and one that we simply cannot live with. To combat this injustice we partner with local rescue centers which counsel, educate and rehabilitate children as they escape from slavery.
Our trips to India support this project work by allowing us to build relationships with the center’s staff and kids. We are committed to “loving as family.” That means we don’t simply just send over money, we want to make sure they know they are loved and cared for. Zest4Kidz trips to India are often camp based with crafts, sports and Christian teaching.
