Our Story

My name is Harold D’Souza, and my wife and I are survivors of labor trafficking and debt bondage. Originally from India, I stepped down from a senior management position in order to pursue the American Dream. I came to the United States following the advice and encouragement of a man who would become my trafficker. For 133 months, I lost my freedom and struggled to keep those I loved safe. 

I founded Eyes Open International because I wanted to create a voice of courage, hope, and freedom for other trafficking victims and end this great evil.
