Young Woman Survivor Decides for Her Future

During her stay in the Blessed House, Mae (name changed for protection and privacy) was able to go to school. Though she was older than most of her classmates, she persevered and even finished a vocational course on cooking while also attending formal school. Now, she is almost done with Grade 12.

She was recently reintegrated in the community. She cooks and sells shrimp paste so she can support herself as she leaves the Blessed Project. She will continue studying and will process her admission in a public school to take a course on social work.

Many rescued victims of abuse cannot go back to their families. Providing them with education and employment skills is very important for their reintegration. We are thankful to all who continue to support our on-the-ground efforts, giving young women like Mae opportunities so they can rebuild lives of dignity.

Help support the girls at the Blessed House through the rehabilitation process, and bring restoration while they rebuild their lives.

Preparation for Reintegration

The ultimate goal for survivors of human trafficking and online sexual abuse and exploitation of children (OSAEC) at The Blessed Project is for them to be reintegrated to the community, or if possible, to their families. The main challenges for this process to happen are the unpreparedness of relatives to accept and care for the trainees, unsuitable environment within the community, and the slow legal process for those with ongoing cases.
