Trafficking Response

The women of the local rural community where we serve have been gifted with very resilient, hard-working and determined spirits. However, they lack two important ingredients in putting these gifts into action: capital and training. Seizing on the potential we see in these amazing women, we’re equipping them with training and basic supplies to start small businesses. They’re making beautifully crafted, in-demand products such as wicker baskets, sleeping mats, and brooms. We’re also providing jobs for the women through a catering company we launched in 2012. As we assist these women in creating income-generating opportunities, we give them the gift of self-confidence and fulfillment in utilizing their talents and abilities.

In Kampala, we are achieving a similar result with women recovering from human trafficking at our “She Has Hope” rehabilitation home just established in early 2017. The program provides young women with a safe place for recovery while training them in jewelry and craft making skills. Products they make during their class time are sold online at to generate funding for their program.
