All of the rescued girls are traumatized. Many have STDs, and some have even contracted diseases such as HIV. In one of our own shelters or a government shelter, they are given medical care and trauma counselling. They also attend school, where they are guided towards a better future.
After the girls have been rescued from prostitution, stigma can prevent them from returning home. Work is their path to freedom, but finding and keeping a job is a major challenge for this vulnerable group. That’s why we provide vocational training and internships. We also work with the families and communities to break the silence around sexual exploitation of minor girls and to have them accepted in their communities.
