All of the rescued girls are traumatized. Most have contracted STDs and tragically many are found to be HIV +. In one of our shelters or a government shelter, they are given medical care and trauma counseling. They also attend school, where they are guided towards a better future.
After the girls have been rescued from situations of sexual exploitation, stigma can prevent them from returning home. Work is their path to freedom, but finding and keeping a job is a major challenge for this vulnerable group. That’s why we provide vocational training and internships. In their internships the girls learn to work in a commercial environment and can learn to save money to set up their own businesses in the future. Many have gained practical work experience and have found jobs in the catering trade.
