Educated in Calcutta under the stewardship of Mother Teresa, Deepa Willingham, is an advocate for vulnerable children living in extreme poverty who fall victim to sex trade operations.

She believes the solution is through education and so founded PACE Universal and the Piyali Learning Center, which helps empower and inspire girls to avoid becoming child brides, being used for child labor, or sold for sex trade. She hopes her education programs will become models for extreme poverty eradication.
