JUNE 2020 HIGHLIGHTS

This quarter we got to support some great organizations across the globe and in our own backyard.  It is a privilege to stand beside these partners who are changing the world – one life at a time.

  • She is Safe is empowering women in India to engage in entrepreneurial and savings groups to keep them from getting lured into human trafficking situations.
  • Black Girls Code is teaching young black girls the skills they need to enter the tech sector.
  • Street Business School is training anti-trafficking organizations on their model so those organizations can help women start businesses as part of their recovery from human trafficking.
  • Strategic Alliance to Fight Exploitation (SAFE) is meeting increased needs of trafficking victims and survivors in WA state during the pandemic.
  • International School Project is training teachers to build moral and ethical character in their students based on the teachings of the Bible.

TIMELY GRANT FUNDING

We are delighted to partner with Rescue:Freedom during the pandemic.  They are taking advantage of this time when brothels and red light districts are shut down overseas due to COVID-19 to get women and girls out of the horrific life of commercial sexual exploitation.
