Keeping the Promise exposes the underworld of human trafficking and tells the story of how two women helped each other escape and are now helping others.

The average age of entry into prostitution for American girls is 12 to 14. Worldwide, human trafficking has surpassed guns and is second only to drugs in the illegal trade. Eden House is a unique two-year program in New Orleans that provides a home for women who have been commercially and sexually exploited, giving them an opportunity to reclaim their lives. Keeping the Promise is a call to action for individuals to get involved in their communities to address this problem.
