Children are often part of a cycle of exploitation.  Estimates are that 50% of the estimated 32 million slaves around the globe are children.   It is also estimated that 35% – 50% of those trafficked for sexual exploitation are between the ages of 12 and 17 and in some areas those numbers are as high as 90%.   This is why we felt it important to create a program focused on children as part of our effort to bring hope and opportunity to the exploited and vulnerable.

Many of the children that are trafficked into labor and sex slavery are done so through the promise of a good paying job.  A lack of education means a lack of choices for these kids leaving them vulnerable to human traffickers.  By ensuring children receive an education we are able to give them options for income.  We also want to instill in children confidence, through an understanding of who God created them to be, that will give them the ability to stand against human traffickers and provide the hope of a better future.
