The Issue

It’s not easy being a girl. More than 200 million girls do not have their opportunity at freedom and education. 150 million girls experience sexual violence each year. This is not right. Join the work of She Is Safe to prevent, rescue, and restore women and girls from abuse and exploitation, equipping them to build lives of freedom and faith for a strong future.

She is in danger of:

SEX SLAVERY

99

99% of sex slaves are female.

VIOLENCE

1

1 in 3 women and girls experience physical or sexual violence in their lifetime.

SUICIDE

1

Suicide is the number one cause of death for adolescent girls in the developing world.

FREEDOM

Girls must first be set free from abuse and slavery so that they can begin to discover their intrinsic worth. Local co-workers light the way to restoration homes where girls begin to experience healing and new life. And, it is even better when we can give families an alternative to selling their daughters!

EDUCATION

An educated girl will reinvest 90% of her future income in her family, compared with 35% for a boy.

Her parents, who traditionally have seen girls as having little to offer, begin to recognize her intelligence and abilities.

LASTING CHANGE

Her neighbors notice the change in the girl and her family, and seek the same
opportunities for their daughters. Soon more girls, villages and communities are
experiencing lasting change, and it becomes no longer acceptable to abuse and sell girls.

In communities known for selling girls

$35 gives a girl one month of intervention;

As a RescueOne monthly partner, you can rescue her from being sold in communities notorious for human trafficking, which is one of the greatest victories. Then her family can be equipped to sell something else. If parents begin to see what a gift girls are to their families and community, we have helped them shift their thinking toward God’s view of these image-bearers.
