22 girls rescued in Uganda
22 survivors, ages 12 to 17, chose freedom and joined our community care programs in Uganda.
All of the children were enduring sexual exploitation in order to survive and meet their basic needs. Five of the survivors have children of their own as a result of their exploitation.
In our programs, the survivors will attend trauma rehabilitation classes and receive counseling. Working with their caseworkers they will customize their freedom plan and begin taking achievable steps towards their new future.
