Spring Update

Posted on May 25th, 2017 by

Dear Praying Friend,

You have been such an important part of what God is doing to make girls safe and free that I wanted to share a brief update with you.

Since our last report to you, our co-workers rescued 4 little girls, ages 4-8, from growing up in a brothel community in India. The girls are now in a She Is Safe-sponsored safe home where they are dearly loved, receiving education, developing their skills and forming faith for a lifetime.

Our Economic Empowerment work is multiplying and innovating – preventing the sale of girls and building up those who have been abused. Today, Syrian refugee girls are gaining new life and trade skills rather than being sold into marriage.

Our literacy, saving and lending program, along with new micro-enterprise training, is equipping mothers to be successful business owners – even in South Sudan, where women are earning enough to pay for their daughters to enter schools and universities… and so much more!

As you continue with us in this good work, we will see even more girls safe from slavery and free to change the way girls are viewed in the future.

Read more about this in our spring update, now available for digital download.

With much thanks,

P.S. Please share this exciting update with your friends and family.

Mid-Year Update blog

Dear Praying Friend,

Is a girl safe if she is born to a teen sex slave? Is she safe if she lives in a trafficker’s village, a slum or a war zone?

Girls born in high risk communities – red light districts, refugee camps, border towns and garbage dumps – live in the midst of serious danger. But we have the tremendous privilege of lifting girls from danger, thanks to a $70,000 Matching Grant Opportunity for the Forgotten Girls Fund!

Our cover girl for this Mid-Year Update (now available on the She Is Safe website) is Devi*, a delightful girl who lives in one of the largest brothel communities in India. Devi has witnessed some of the worst of humanity: traffickers, pimps and violent sex offenders. Is she safe? Actually, thanks to you, she is!

Devi’s mother joined a She Is Safe learning and lending group in her area of the slum, in the hope that she could build a better life and shield her daughter from living under slavery. Every week her literacy, vocational and financial abilities increase. She is building a new life, with God’s help, for herself and for Devi.

Mid-Year Report side-graphicDevi and her mother are only halfway into our program, and they need our help to complete the course and rise above their vulnerabilities. We can’t stop investing in their capacity to sustain lives of dignity just yet, or they will fall backwards into slavery.

We are only midway through the year, but we are already celebrating transformed lives and families. While we pause to give thanks, we also have our eyes on what is yet to be done for girls who are still in danger. Click here to read our 2016 Mid-Year Update!
