Indian Prevention Girl Rekha Named Valedictorian
Filed Under: Blog, Girls, India, International News, Prevention, Stories
In India, we run a prevention program, which helps both girls and boys who are at-risk of being trafficked or used for the purposes of commercial sexual exploitation. The program enables vulnerable children to enter our care where they are given safety, an education, and a loving home which includes parental and pastoral care.
Today as spring marks the end of another academic year, we have some wonderful news from the manager of Destiny Rescue’s India Prevention Program. He wanted us to convey a huge thank you to all of our supporters for helping us run the prevention care program this year. He says your love, prayers and concern for these children has been amazing, and because of you they have enjoyed all the blessings and benefits of freedom: to live, study and plan for their future.
All of our prevention children passed their year-end examinations and have been promoted to the next level of their education. Some have passed from elementary school into high school; some have completed high school and are seeking entry into higher education. (Note to our readers: In India’s academic system, children complete Grade 10, they then may apply to enter “10 + 2” which is equivalent to Grade 12 or an International Baccalaureate).
Right now, Rekha is being celebrated by the college, which is featuring her to publicise the school’s academic success!
Not only has Rekha accomplished incredible personal success and distinction, but we are told that she has also brought a very good name to our Destiny Rescue India family.
Again, we can’t thank our supporters enough for helping us protect and empower children towards bright futures. Given the right opportunities, the sky is the limit for them.
