2017 Annual Life Change Report

(Excerpt from the President’s Introductory Letter)

Dear She Is Safe Friend,

This year brings She Is Safe to 15 years of ministry! Though this report is focused on the highlights of the past 12 months, the fruit you see has taken years of persistence, growing our roots deeply into the soil of the hardest places.

While digging into the underlying causes of abuse and slavery, we have seen that prevention is the best strategy for making girls safe and free. By making at-risk girls, their families and communities far less vulnerable to predators, we are changing the way people think about the next generation of girls and boys. Every single one is a gift from God to be nurtured and protected.

You will see our preference for prevention reflected in the large numbers of individuals who have been spared from misery. I am sure you agree that it is best by far to save girls from a life-time of abuse and, through them, to make the next generation of girls safe, free and equipped.

Though rescue is a small part of our work, we celebrate every girl who has been rescued this year, while we also work hard for those who need restoration – making it possible for them to live in safety while they embrace their new skills and new identities.

God gets all the glory for this time of fruitfulness. And we want to thank you for partnering with us in the good work of prevention, rescue and restoration in the years ahead. We invite you to link arms with us.

Until every girl is safe, free and equipped,

Lost Lambs – Found

Posted on December 14th, 2015 by

Lost Lambs headerDear Praying Friend,

Christmas especially turns our hearts to shepherds, lambs, and the amazing account of the Great Shepherd humbly entering our broken world to seek and save lost sheep.

Anjay was one of those lost lambs. She spent her days on the dangerous streets of a tourist island of Indonesia. When she was 13 years old, an older girl offered to guide Anjay to a particular street that promised her a life of wealth. The girl who “shepherded” Anjay had actually trafficked her into the red light district, where pimps used her for two years. But because we were supported, She Is Safe co-workers were there on the streets to lead her to a new path—to a safe home, to vocational training and to her beloved Shepherd.
These lost lambs are not hard to find. The traffickers know where they are, and so do we. The younger ones and those who are desperate are the quickest to respond to the kind of help we can bring. Intervening before girls are led away into misery is the best of all. And this can all happen because of you.

lost lambsIf you lost one of your lambs, you would stop at nothing to bring her to safety. You would dress her wounds, restore her from trauma and teach her to build a great life in the center of God’s embrace – no matter what the cost. What is it worth to prevent a girl from being sold? Or to restore her once she has been rescued? It only costs a few hundred dollars for each one, but we prevent, rescue and restore thousands each year.

Our December 2015 Challenge is big because the numbers of lost girls we can reach is big! Our year-end goal of $500,000 will fill the gap of what is needed to provide for caring staff, material needs, equipment, training and travel as we head into 2016 and work in high-trafficking communities.

Will you consider giving generously to this important Forgotten Girls Annual Fund before December 31st, 2015 to help us prevent, rescue and restore 16,000 girls and women from suffering abuse and slavery and equip them to build whole new lives?

Your gift will mean that lost girls like Anjay will be found, one by one, and have an opportunity to thrive in Christ.

Please don’t wait a moment to respond. Think of one little lamb who is being led toward abuse and slavery right now. Pray for her. Now help her. With your help, we will find and lift her! And your loving support can make all the difference in her safety and freedom.
