Dewi 1 and her younger sister, Yani, rehearse a play in the backroom of a nondescript house in Surakarta, a city of 1 million inhabitants located in Central Java, Indonesia. The play, Eka, is about a girl abducted and sold into the sex trade. The sisters and nine of their teenage friends wrote and perform the play. When she refused to have sex with him Eka was raped.
Kakak, which means elder sibling in Indonesian, provides refuge, counselling and hope for children involved in the sex industry. Although girls represent the majority of the victims, many boys are also involved in prostitution. At present, Kakak assists female and male victims of sexual exploitation through its programme and, with support from the local police and community, has successfully removed nine of these children from the sex industry, a significant achievement.
It took us three years to rescue Dewi and Yani. After a long journey by car to an unknown destination, she was raped by a middle-aged Indonesian man who beat her unconscious after she refused his advances. She was immediately sold to a brothel where she was guarded day and night. Intimidated, ashamed and deeply disturbed, Yani and Dewi became two of the million of young girls and boys that go into the multi-billion-dollar sex trade across the globe.
I lived from hotel room to hotel room, and worked wherever a client wanted me, here in Surakarta, Yogyakarta or Jakarta. She told her mother what had happened to her. She continued working as a sex worker, although less frequently. She knew she wanted out and wanted to stop her drug use.
So did her sister Yani, and they decided to turn to Kakak for help. Finally, supported by their mother and by Kakak, both sisters successfully left the sex industry. Dewi is now back in school and is learning to become a counsellor for children who have been exploited.
