The head of staff in a middle school we worked closely came to us, saying of his students: “The girls are being sold, forced to have sex with foreigners, while their parents keep the money.” We knew many of these girls, knew their families, and knew that we had no option but to get involved, ending this injustice. We were able to rescue the girls who were being targeted, help to relocate them, and provide them with safety and other educational opportunities. We continue this sponsorship, helping a number of these young girls with education, job training, and job placement.

Our dream is to work ourselves out of a job and have every girl eventually become self-sustaining through her work or the success of her family.
