She Is Safe recently launched another group in Myanmar to empower 14 women with business training, savings and loans and the love of Christ. Each group is led by a local Christian woman trained in the She Is Safe Transformation Group program. This program uses a holistic approach of supportive relationships, anti-trafficking education, saving and lending and vocational skills to equip the world’s most vulnerable women to protect their daughters from abuse and exploitation. She Is Safe currently has 11 groups in Myanmar serving 164 women.
Women who earn $1 to $2 a day doing hard manual labor will, within a few months, have new skills and savings to start their own businesses. These ventures include selling traditional snacks or making soap to provide financial stability for their families and keep their daughters from being sold. A sisterhood of Christian community surrounds them as they start the journey toward new lives of hope.
