Mary grew up in an orphanage in India with a bleak outlook for her future. When time came for her to leave the orphanage she was deceived by an offer of marriage and found herself instead in a brothel. She escaped and tried to commit suicide multiple times, the last time by eating glass. A member of Rahabís Rope artisan group found her dying in the street and brought her to the center. Many young women like Mary have found a lifeline at Rahabís Rope, where they discover new opportunities as they make handcrafted jewelry.
