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.
At Captivating, we are excited to begin our journey with the Blessed Project. Thank you to all those who are helping fund this life changing program.
16 Children Rescued from Online Sexual Abuse and Exploitation
16 children have been rescued from online sexual abuse and exploitation. Most of them experienced the abuse from their own families and relatives. These children are now safe in our shelter, receiving the counselling and support they need to start rebuilding their lives.
The prolonged pandemic in the Philippines has created issues that required necessary adjustments, especially for the women and children in The Blessed Project who are still in school and/or have ongoing court cases.
Early in 2019, the slum area where Kara and her family lived caught fire. Kara was homeless so she decided to live with her friends. One of her friends introduced her to a woman who promised to give her a job. Little did she know that the woman would exploit her.
