Our journey started with the award-winning book, SOLD, by Patricia McCormick, now a feature film, Directed by Oscar-winning director Jeffrey Brown, Executive Produced by Emma Thompson and Produced by Jane Charles.  Through one extraordinary girl’s story, SOLD illustrates the brutality of child trafficking, a horrifying crime experienced by an estimated 2 million girls every year around the globe. SOLD is both a call to action, and a testament to the power and resilience of the human spirit.Some of us traveled to India to see the issue first hand.  Upon our return we realized that we have a horrific problem in our own backyard and StolenYouth™ was born.
