“Whatever I do would barely scrape the surface. But is something better than nothing?” – Katrell Christie, Tiger HeartA little less than a year ago, I was researching various businesses that help combat human trafficking when I came across the Learning Tea. I tried to connect with the owner, Katrell Christie, but she was in India at the time, and unfortunately the connection faded into the background as I plunged into the world of magazine production. Sometime later, I was asked if I would like to review Tiger Heart, a book on Christie’s journey to help end human trafficking in India.Tiger Heart is about Katrell Christie’s life journey, which weaves its way throughout the text connecting her personal and philanthropic lives, often leaving her to wonder how she arrived in her current state. While she addresses many topics, her core is always the heart of her mission. Her purpose in India is wrapped around a group of young girls in a small town who are being pushed out of the orphanage because they are of age to leave. At 16 years of age, girls are unceremoniously pressed out onto the streets of India, where many find themselves in sexual slavery or domestic servitude. Christie’s safe house gives them the ability to finish their young years studying so they can find a decent job to support themselves and break the cycle of poverty.Among the topics she discusses includes her haphazard and reluctant way of “discovering” India; her shock on various issues such as trafficking and acid attacks; and her need to do what she could do to end the suffering. As her story unfolds, she talks about her struggles to secure a home for her girls, and candidly discusses her failures along with her successes, both in India and in the United States.
