In some regions of Southeast Asia, it is estimated that there are more than 200,000 enslaved minors, without taking into account those who are at risk.
Many of these children come from remote villages in India and Nepal without access to education or any way to improve their living conditions. For this reason, we support a local children’s center that offers safe and effective alternatives in the midst of adverse circumstances.
In 2018 we worked to enhance the safety and living conditions of the children’s center by constructing a wall, repairing the ceiling in the residence center, providing improved sanitation, and painting the home. In addition, we were able to provide mosquito netting and fans, as well as shoes and clothing for the 100 children at the home. To cap off the year in 2018, we carried out a special celebration, providing Christmas gifts for the 100 children.
We periodically make on-site visits to support the team of people who give their lives for these children, to evaluate the progress of the home, and to establish new objectives and goals.
In collaboration with the association “Femmes de Salem” established in West Africa, we are supporting a program directed toward the care and protection of the most vulnerable population, the children. Thanks to their childcare, many children are growing up in a safe and secure environment.
Through these collaborative partnerships, we directly support the fight against human trafficking in these countries.
