Zesa Academy is a program of Sanlaap North America, which provides vocational education in jewelry and fabric design, along with a life skills training which includes personal finance, personal healthcare, safety & self-defense and basic English, to women and girls who are living in an anti-trafficking or domestic violence shelter.

In January 2014, Students of the World filmmaker Jacob Hamilton traveled to Kolkata, India, to produce two short documentary films about SNA's transformational program. As part of the vocational training program, the women craft jewelry which is sold on zesa.org, and receive 100% of the proceeds.

Sanlaap North America works to rescue, shelter and empower women and girls who have been kidnapped or sold by their families into the red light districts of urban India.

SNA provides medical care, emotional therapy, education, vocational training, life skills, and job placement to the women and girls.
