We’re breaking the tragic cycle of impoverished mums, begging children and human trafficking.
Our work help mums and children in six ways:
RESCUING ABUSED CHILDREN
Hundreds of international sex traffickers arrive iin Bali each month, with the aim of assaulting vulnerable children on the streets.
Ira, our Social Worker and Child Psychologist, works with police to rescue and rehabilitate abused children, and convict the offenders.
PROVIDING A SAFE HOUSE AND REFUGE
We rescue children and mothers from trafficking, assault and abuse. They need a safe home to recover. Our safe house is secure and has beds for 30 children and mothers. The house also has a cottage which provides a home for a mother and her six children (all rescued from trafficking). The Safe house is also a place for mothers and their children to come each day for medical and food aid. Schooling and counselling.
FEEDING THE HUNGRY
We open our gates every morning at 6 am to over 50 hungry children a day. Children from the slum areas, rubbish dump villages and the streets. We provide a nutritious breakfast fruit and vitamins. Followed by activities and schooling.
MEDICAL AID AND COUNSELING
Many children come from the streets suffering malnutrition, dehydration and illnesses. Others have injuries that have never been attended to. We have mothers that need prenatal and birthing care. We have children that we have rescued from mental, physical and sexual abuse. Our well being team takes care of their emotional and physical needs.
EDUCATING THE KIDS
When we first talk to the children begging on the streets. We ask them what they dream of….they all reply “I want to go to school “. For most of them this is an impossible dream, yet the only way they can ever hope to escape poverty. Many children that we rescue have not attended primary school, therefore they could never go to school. They are trapped . We provide a remedial program to these children and bridging school so that they will be able to attend a formal school and receive a diploma.
EMPOWERING THE MUMS
It is important the mothers earn an income so that they do not take their children back to the streets to beg. We teach the mothers handicrafts, which are then sold through various shops and markets providing the mums with an income.
Donating $50/month enables an impoverished child with clothing, meals and child development focused activities for one month.
