WHERE DREAMS BLOOM
Together we can make their dreams come true!
The children are very hopeful about their lives!
The beneficiaries are girls aged 6 to 20, whose families are surviving from the sex trade. Their life is precarious and unstable. They face daily poverty, drugs, disease, HIV, violence and family debt bondage. They are at high risk of being forced into sexual exploitation. This project protects them through regular monitoring by social workers and we support schooling, health, prevention education, life skills, entertainment activities, etc., for them and their families. We help them regain psychological stability and hope for a better future.
Protection and education. Schooling in public schools until the baccalaureate. Helping the family to become better. Helping the mother to leave prostitution.
Bring joy and hope to the children and make them social activists in their communities.
The program covers all school fees, health insurance, extracurricular training, vocational and leisure activities, psychological support for the family and regular follow-up by social workers.
Costs and duration
The project costs 40.000€ per year.
It lasts the whole year and is renewed the following years. The girls leave the project when they have a job, but the majority like to continue to participate to support the younger ones.
