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.

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.
