Overview

100 temporary wives (long-term prostitutes) in Mali gained literacy, vocational training and tools for micro-business startups, with discipleship- helping them to build a respectable life.

Program 1

Transformation Groups

She Is Safe Transformation Groups enable disadvantaged women to better themselves, their families, and their neighbors. Women improve literacy and communications skills, develop leadership abilities, learn a vocational skill, earn and save money, and form a savings pool out of which members receive and repay loans. Women receive training in health and hygiene, life skills, basic human rights, and hear the gospel. Depending upon the critical issues in a given location, women learn to address infanticide, child marriage, domestic abuse, and human trafficking.

Program 2

Anti-trafficking

She Is Safe Anti-trafficking initiatives consist of prevention, rescue, and restoration of women and girls in red light districts, brothel communities, refugee settlements and communities where traffickers pray on vulnerable girls. In some areas girls at high risk of being trafficked are provided income-generating opportunities to help support their families and prevent being sold into slavery. In other areas girls as young as three are rescued from brothels and placed in a safe home where they receive education, nurture and the love of Christ. In red light districts, women and girls are offered friendship, participation in small groups, weekly Bible studies, and vocational training.

STATEMENT FROM THE Founder and President

"The world uses and discards its most vulnerable women and girls. But God loves each one of them, and he sees their potential to change the families, communities, and nations they live in.
