Daughters and young sisters of women involved into prostitution face higher risk of sexual abuse, early sex debut and sex trafficking. WHERE DREAMS BLOOM is a program to improve their chance of breaking the cycle of exploitation and poverty through education. We prevent school drop out and provide life skills training, inform them about sex related risks and enrich their childhood experience with recreation activities. To date, AAT is supporting 19 children from primary to high schools and post-high school. Many girls from this special group that AAT has rare access to are still struggling to stay in school and could fall victims to sexual abuse and trafficking at any time. AAT is looking for more funding to continue its support to the existing group and to reach out to the other children in the community.
