Stuart Perrin was born and raised in New York City and he graduated from The New School For Social Research with a degree in Humanities.
He spent many years studying, mastering and teaching deep meditation practice and Oriental philosophy and religion, and he set up meditation centers throughout the United States, Europe, Israel and Brazil. Meanwhile, he earned his living in the Asian Art business. He has also published six books.
From 1992 to 1996, Kristina Jones and Stuart Perrin co-founded a safe house in Kathmandu called Bahini. They worked with NGO's and doctors to find children (10 to 14 years old) who were prime targets for sex traffickers who smuggled them out of Nepal and sold them to brothels in India. They also had women and children in their safe house that escaped or were thrown out of Bombay brothels.
His novel, Little Sisters, is a multicultural love and suspense story set in New York City, Nepal and Mumbai. The underlying theme is human trafficking. Published a few months ago, it has inspired major panel events on the subject in many parts of the United States. Mr. Perrin and Ms. Jones have re-established the Bahini Foundation. It is presently recognized by the Oregon State Government and will be a fully recognized 501-C3 not for profit by the US Federal Government by September or October 2013. The goals of the Bahini Foundation are the following:
1. Raising awareness of anti-human trafficking. (Stuart Perrin’s book "Little Sisters" is already doing this.)
2. Supporting NGO’s throughout the world that work every day to keep children from being trafficked into sexual slavery.
3. Establishing safe houses and shelters throughout the United States for women and children that have escaped from human trafficking. Education is a key factor and the Bahini Foundation will work diligently with high schools and universities to provide this.
