From a Trafficking Survivor to a Confident and Inspiring Woman
Andi [name changed for privacy and protection] was rescued from trafficking by International Justice Mission (IJM) and referred to the Blessed House in 2017. During the past few years, she has gone through counselling, confidence building and learning skills that she can rely on to earn an income. She is now strong and confident and able to move out of the Blessed House and reintegrate into the community. She successfully secured a scholarship to finish her studies and is continuing to support herself through her job at the Blessed House's Sewing Enterprise. She is also one of the facilitators of the Human Trafficking Awareness Campaign (HTAC) with the microfinance groups. She spends time and engages with the mothers - answering their questions about human trafficking and encouraging them to fight it.

Wennie's Growing Businesses
Wennie joined the the Honor 1000 Microfinance project in 2017 because, being able to give her three small children a good education was important to her. She didn't want the temptation of trafficking and cyber crime to lure herself or her children as a way to earn money. She knew she was not financially stable enough and worried what the future would be for her children. A microloan from the Honor 1000 Microfinance project was just what she needed.
