"To succumb to the enormity of the problem is to fail the one."

Something MUST be done to keep her from going back to that hopeless darkness and depraved life.

What is freedom and truth if you are forced to go back to your cage?

The statistics point toward a staggering number of rescued human trafficking survivors being re-trafficked. We know now that rescuing and even prosecuting and convicting traffickers doesn't necessarily change things for that survivor. Why does she go back?

 

An estimated 400,000 prostitutes in the Philippines are of school-going age. What that means is that even the women and girls who are rescued have little access to a different life because without an education they lack the skills or the knowledge to generate a steady source of income to support themselves and their family. Without the financial means to receive a proper education, generations after generations are entrenched farther into poverty. Poverty of mind, body, and spirit. A deep poverty that money alone can't fix, but money and hope and support can make all the difference.

 

At Safe Refuge we prioritize education for all of our residents. Going beyond what they know right now in every way. Some of our girls have actually learned to read and write in our home devotions and discipleship programs. We know that with an education they not only have the practical skills to survive, but even more importantly, an education changes so much about how they see themselves. She won't go back when she's no longer a prostituted person. She's no one else’s property. She's not trash. When you invest in her, something shifts in the deepest places of her identity. When for the first time someone asks about her dreams and what would she study if she could go to college, everything changes in her world. Those impossibilities becoming possible really do change everything, not only for her but for her children and her children's children. One life at a time we will see things changed.

 

Thank you for standing and journeying with her to see transformation. This month we need an additional $4,000 to make education possible for the girls we currently are committed to help. We have 6 girls enrolled in college and 2 on waiting lists. We have 2 in high school and 10 in elementary. If you want to be a part of changing things and seeing cycles of poverty broken please do something today!

Hayley has had a rough first 5 years of life...She almost died in her mother's womb but an emergency c-section saved her, her mother, and her twin brother's lives. She contracted Tuberculosis in her first year of life (from her mother) and she's currently going through her second round of treatment for TB. Last week she ran out into the road and was hit by a motorcab which could have killed her but her Daddy God again intervened! She fracture her leg in a couple places and will be in a cast for a while. We are so grateful God kept her safe and her mama is with her learning so much about grace and strength that only comes from our limitless God.
Please keep Hayley in your prayers as she heals!

Safe Refuge needs $260 a day to do what we do right now. The $130 that's coming in is miraculous and sacrificial but the needs are twice that. So like loaves and fishes, God's been miraculously multiplying and your gifts come in at moments just when the impossibilities seem overwhelming! The school year runs June-Oct and Nov-March so college enrollment for the new semester is upcoming!
