Indonesia – Anti-trafficking
Samara ran away from abusive home life. She sought refuge with her boyfriend, but he forced her into prostitution. Now she is healing and living in peace at our safe house, eager to continue her education.
Prostitution is legal in Indonesia, and high poverty drives many young girls into this lifestyle. Each of Indonesia’s 33 provinces is a source and destination of trafficking.
Through Indonesia Anti-trafficking outreach in the red light districts, our co-workers offer friendships in brothel communities, engage women and girls in weekly Bible studies, and provide vocational training in a safe house.
Why Anti-trafficking is needed for Girls in Indonesia:
- Indonesia women are particularly vulnerable to trafficking for sexual and labor exploitation (2013 Trafficking In Persons Report)
- Traffickers work with corrupt school officials to add young girls to trafficking rings (2013 Trafficking In Persons Report)
Last Year’s Anti-trafficking Outcomes Worldwide:
- 1,463 vulnerable girls were intercepted at She Is Safe-sponsored border stations.
- 231 women and girls received shelter, counseling and vocational training to build new lives.
- 3,340 school age children received education in dignity, healthy relationships and how to protect themselves from abuse.
