As a teenager Najma traveled to Abu Dhabi for a domestic-help position, and was immediately trafficked into commercial sex work. She managed to escape back to Bangladesh after a year of forced prostitution, exploitation and abuse. Now 25, Najma is part of a rehabilitation programme supported by UN Women. Operated with government and NGO partners, the programme re-integrates exploited migrants into their communities.
