Pursuing Dreams through Education

Coming from extremely impoverished families, education has only been a far-fetched dream for most of the women and girls in The Blessed Project in the Philippines. They were deprived of education because of lack of financial capacity, and were forced to work – mostly in the commercial sex industry – even at a young age.

Responsible Use of Technology

The team taught the kids not only how to protect themselves from the lurking dangers in the virtual world, but also how to be responsible with technology. The kids learned how to protect themselves from cyber bullying, how to respond when they experience it, and how to promote respect and be responsible members of the online community.

Building a life of dignity

One of the girls from the Blessed Project made this beautiful seat cover. These seat covers are now available for rent - for parties and events in the local region. There is so much room for creativity for the girls, not only in sewing but as well as in finding ways to make these products available to the local market.

A Mother and Mentor

Tonet teaches sewing to the girls of Blessed Project in the Philippines, helping girls who are survivors of trafficking, develop skills and prepare them for employment and sustainable living. We celebrate all those who compassionately share a piece of their lives to assist and support trafficking survivors on their way to healing and recovery.

Education to Defeat Deception

We partner with an energetic and committed team in the Philippines, The Honor 1000 Team, in the fight against trafficking and the growing rates of cybersex crime. Weekly sessions are conducted with elementary students to promote awareness and educate them of the various risks online. The alarming reality is that each week, 2 out of every 10 students share their personal experiences of online phishing, account racking, and deception.
