Safe Place for Two Sisters

When their mother started working at night as a prostitute in the Philippines, she would usually ask one of her male friends to watch over her children. The man started abusing both of the girls repeatedly. Because of this, the two girls would usually sneak out of their house at night and walk around the city. A number of times, foreigners would call them into their hotel rooms and take videos of them naked.

Through the help of IJM (International Justice Mission) Philippines, the girls were rescued and were brought to the Blessed House. Now, they are happy to be in a safe place, surrounded by people who care for them.

In fact, the staff and other girls at the Blessed Project recently arranged a simple gathering for one of the sisters’ birthday celebration. Although simple, it was surely memorable, as it was the first time the young girl experienced such a celebration for her birthday.

Thank you to Casey and Sue for sponsoring these girls and giving them a safe place to heal and grow. 

The Blessed Project in the Philippines is currently the home to 19 young women, survivors of human trafficking.

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.

Rehabilitation for survivors

Some of the Filipino women who are part of the Blessed Project were extremely focused in learning the art of calligraphy. The amazing team at the Blessed Project help these surviors of trafficking and abuse, learn varying skills that match their varying interests and help them in their holistic development and rehabilitation.
