23 Children Rescued from Exploitation


21 children, ages 12-17, were enduring exploitation to survive. Two 7-year-olds were rescued from the generational impact of sexual exploitation.

Children who grow up with an exploited parent are often subjected to exploitation themselves. Our teams work with adult mothers to ensure their young children are kept safe from exploitation. Often, the mothers choose to step into a life of freedom as well! We are thankful to have the opportunity to end this cycle of exploitation.

All 23 children joined our Community Care program. In our program, they will be assessed to determine what necessities, education or vocational training is needed to keep them moving toward freedom!

We were honored to announce our work in Kenya earlier this year publicly! You can learn more about Kenya, a beautiful land of contrasts, here.
