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.
As young as 9 years old, Elaine (name changed for privacy) was pimped by her mom to customers along the street, and at 10 years old, Elaine started working in bars. She was finally rescued a year after and is now safe in shelter.
In June 2020, International Justice Mission (IJM) and the Philippine National Police rescued a deaf and mute 27-year-old online sexual exploitation victim, together with her children. She was admitted to the Blessed House for immediate care and is now part of Blessed Project’s Sewing Livelihood Program as part of her restoration.
