IJM Mumbai opened in 2000 and has been combating sex trafficking and fervently working to protect the poor from violence for nearly 20 years. In 2018, IJM Mumbai was awarded a grant from the Global Fund to End Modern Slavery (GFEMS) which will play a huge role in expanding our programs to combat these egregious acts of violence.
For a more in-depth discussion, we had the opportunity to learn from Yesudas Naidu, who serves as the Associate Director of Training and Development in the IJM Mumbai Office.
Question: How did you first get involved in the work of IJM?
As someone who has been an advocate in the human rights field for more than thirty years, the one constant I count on is the unpredictable nature of working with Congress. 2019 began with a massive challenge for those of us advocating with the government: the longest government shutdown in U.S. history, which just recently ended.
The game has changed. The landscape of influencing Congress is evolving and as advocates with a message that impacts millions lives around the world, we must adapt our tactics to make sure we’re heard.

At IJM, we believe that prayer is the starting point for the work of justice. As we seek justice on behalf of the poor and oppressed, we turn to God to ask for his help with work that can seem daunting. Around the world, IJM prayer partners and prayer communities comes together to enter in to the work of prayer as we press forward in areas of great darkness and serve those in need of rescue and restoration.
