A Challenge and An Opportunity

Posted on December 7th, 2016 by

Dear Praying Friend,

We have two great opportunities to make thousands more girls safe and free – a $60,000 Challenge and a $50,000 Match!

A generous donor family has offered a $60,000 Challenge for our Forgotten Girls Fund. You can take up the challenge to join in so we can make greater progress possible in Christ’s Name for at-risk girls and women. These funds will be used where most needed to provide caring staff, material needs, equipment and travel to prevent, rescue and restore more women and girls in areas notorious for abuse and slavery.

At the same time, another donor family has offered a $50,000 Giving Opportunity to be used for sharing God’s love through She Is Safe learning and lending groups in India, Indonesia and South Sudan, and for abuse prevention for children in at-risk communities in Indonesia.

When your generous donation is applied to either of these two wonderful opportunities between now and year end, together, we will be able to reach and equip thousands more girls and women. We don’t want to leave either challenge unmet!

So, please click here to give a gift to help make every girl safe and free. Be sure to let us know which fund you would like to help by designating your gift to either the “$60,000 Forgotten Girls Challenge” or the “$50,000 At-Risk Women and Children Giving Opportunity”.

For safety and freedom,

P.S. Please share these powerful opportunities with your friends and families and encourage them to join you in saving lives.

Pantaloons and Protections

Dear Praying Friend,

When I arrived on the island of Sumatra, people were demonstrating for YuYun, a bright girl who was raped and murdered by seven men and seven boys on her way home from school.

People were furious about yet another horrific incident of sexual violence. In response, the president of Indonesia called for stronger protections for children and harsher penalties for perpetrators.

Pantaloons

Pantaloons and Protections

This new indignation emboldened us to reach more children with our Abuse Prevention and Recourse Training. We were able to go into schools with a letter from the governor and teach students the Ten Tips to Safety, give them printed copies and point out the Hotline for Help.

However, there was one more essential piece needed as a barrier of protection: undergarments. It’s a simple fact of life that most girls in the developing world have no undergarments. ZERO protection is the norm.

We gave every girl a cute pair of pantaloons with a ruffle at the knee. This new layer of protection is also a waving flag to any would-be perpetrator that this child has been informed and has recourse with a hotline number and trusted adults in her circle to report any abuses.

Right now, three communities are inviting us to provide prevention and recourse to 100,000 at-risk children, and we do not know how long this door will be open to She Is Safe. For only $10 per child, we could see life become dramatically safer for girls in the world’s largest Muslim country!
