Employment for Rehabilitated Women

The Blessed Project’s Sewing Enterprise in the Philippines focuses on two core objectives: (1) sustainability and (2) skills training to prepare young women for employment. Recently, orders from nearby institutions and partners were received. This social enterprise is beginning to earn income that will help it to grow and become sustainable.

As the project moves forward to increasing its capacity as a sewing line, the team recently hired Jelyn to be one of their assistant sewers. Jelyn was once part of the Blessed Project as a survivor of trafficking, and has been successfully reintegrated into the community. She works just like a regular employee in a company. She has already been involved in different sewing projects where she is showing great potential.

Jelyn’s story is just one of the many success stories the program wishes to witness as this social enterprise grows. Thank you for all your support.

Seeking Justice Against Perpetrator

Most victims of cybersex are young children who aren't even aware that they are being abused. The work that our partners do is crucial in coming alongside them in realizing they are being abused and that there is help. The Blessed Project exists to help rehabilitate young women and girls who have fallen prey to traffickers and the online world of cybersex.

Restoration and Dignity

The annual average increase of prostituted children in the Philippines is 3,266 children per year. Tragically, the Philippines ranks fourth in the world in terms of countries with the highest number of prostituted children (humantrafficking.org Philippines). It’s effect on the innocence of impoverished children is heart-breaking.

Safe Place for Two Sisters

The mother of these sisters works as a prostitute in the Philippines. When their mother started working at night time, she would usually ask one of her male friends to watch her kids. That man started abusing both girls repeatedly. Because of this, the two girls would usually sneak out of their house at night time and walk around the city.

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.

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.
