The School for Justice in India, which opened its doors this month, is providing support, tuition and mentoring to 19 girls to university level. The pupils will then spend five years studying to become a bachelor of law.

Free a Girl Movement CEO Francis Gracias said: ‘We want to attack the culture that allows criminals behind child prostitution by educating the victims of this crime to become lawyers and prosecutors with the power to change the system.’

The school has been set up by international organisation Free a Girl Movement, which fights against human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation of children.
