Each child stands at an intersection, one road leads down a path to sexual exploitation where the dreams of young children are lost in the horrors of greed, abuse and modern day slavery, as girls as young as 8 years old and up are forced into the unimaginable, the sex trade.
Down another road children are given a future with hope as they participate in the everyday activities at our Good Life Home. These children are reaching towards their dreams, with opportunities available for them, recognizing that goals can be set and reached, daring to dream for a better tomorrow. There is joy on their faces as they prepare lessons and learn skills needed to build a transforming future.
So what influences their direction? It is the intersection! At this critical time of their lives, you and I stand together, directing them to a better way– the way made possible because we are there to show them and provide an alternative. For us, it is unthinkable that a small child should be forced or tricked into the horrors of child prostitution. Once down that road, their lives are destroyed, and all hope of a meaningful, fulfilled life is gone.
With your help we can be there. We need to be at the intersection – YOU and Serving Our World – working together to rescue and guide these children to hope and an exciting future!
