Project Details

  • Project Description:

    More than 35,000 young women in this city are exploited and enslaved, living without any knowledge of the Truth that can set them free. You can minister to them through praying, volunteering, and supporting a local safe house and bakery.

    The average street in some parts of this city can have as many as ten brothels, each offering up to eight girls. The girls are subject to sexually transmitted diseases and emotional and physical abuse. Many come from rural areas move to the urban centers with hopes for a brighter future. Some of the girls have been trafficked. Some are physically enslaved. All are exploited by their bosses and owners. All live in spiritual bondage.

    Your gift will help keep the safe house open. You can also come and minister by serving in a local bakery ministry run by former prostitutes. Help prepare gift bags for weekly distribution or teach practical skills to the girls. Participate in daily prayer walking and Bible study. Bring hope to those who have none. Share the Truth with those who desperately need a Savior. Change the lives of young brothel workers. See every red light turned off, and the light of Christ turned on in the life of each girl.
