52 children rescued and enrolled in community care


Over the past few weeks, the survivors, ages eight to 17, have attended our initial trauma-rehabilitation program and begun the first steps of their freedom plan.

These rescues occurred in South Asia. Almost all of the survivors were being sexually exploited and abused in exchange for funds needed to survive.

Five of the survivors were eight years old.

Our program in this region focuses on trauma rehabilitation and training programs that help families break free from extreme poverty. In cases where a very young child is rescued, our freedom plan focuses on providing training opportunities for her guardian so that the child can attend school and the family is able to afford necessities such as food and shelter.
