Gita was trafficked into the UK and forced to work from the age of 5 years old. She was kept as an unpaid maid and was routinely abused. Aged 15, she managed to escape. Without money, language skills, or an understanding of normal life in the UK, she lived on the streets before being placed in care. With the help of her local Law Centre, she applied for refugee status and was properly recognised as a victim of trafficking. She is now beginning to build a new life.
