A safe place

The Blessed Project in the Philippines continues to be a safe place for girls rescued from abuse and trafficking. Eunice* is the newest resident of the Blessed House. She was rescued and warmly welcomed by the girls and staff.

She spent her first day in the sewing facility. Another survivor of abuse and trafficking took Eunice under her wings and helped her use the sewing machine. The girls here find common ground and are able to support each other through recovery on their road to getting back on their feet.

*name changed for protection

Building skills restores confidence

The sewing program, which is part of the the Blessed Project, is bridging the gap between when a woman is rescued and when she is self sustainably reintegrated. These women are provided skills and livelihood opportunities.  We are seeing these Filipino women regain their confidence and self esteem.
