42 girls rescued and on paths to freedom


Forty-two girls, ages 15 to 17, have enrolled in our community care program in an undisclosed country after we rescued them.

Most survivors were selling themselves to contribute to their family income or support their personal needs. Nine of the children were the main breadwinners for their families.

We will distribute food packs monthly to survivors and their families as a part of our program. The food helps alleviate the financial pressure that initially drove them into exploitation.

In addition to food packs, the children will receive monthly health checks, access to vocational training, such as tailoring classes, and assistance from a caseworker as they follow their freedom plan.
