At the tender age of 13, Maiya was pushed into the cruel world of prostitution when she was taken away from Nepal and sold off to 'Shonagachi', the red-light district in Kolkata. Maiya, like so many other got lured by greedy men and was forced to sell herself everyday at a brothel, because she was poor and uneducated. But life cannot possibly remain cruel to those who have the will to change their destinies.
With the help of Josephine Tan, the founder of 'Touch Nature', she was able to get out her morbid life and start working towards being a new person; a happier person. Her story is one that gives everyone hope. A hope to make their lives better.
