THE STORY:

Help us raise money for a Youth Camp that focuses on preventing the sexual exploitation of minors

This summer I am interning for an organization called La Fundación Rahab (The Rahab Foundation) in San José, Costa Rica. This organization rehabilitates women, men, and adolescents who are victims of sex trafficking or who participate in the commercial sex industry. They offer services that reintegrate families into society through spiritual attention, education, nutrition, psychological assistance, and vocational training. Rahab has helped more than 3,000 people in the San Jose area, provided 16 houses, and trained over 5,000 government leaders, police, tourism workers, and youth in human trafficking issues.

The Rahab Foundation, also, offers a Youth Camp that works with adolescents that live in impoverished neighborhoods and are at high risk of becoming involved in the sex industry. Many of these children's family members are directly involved in the sex industry or with substance abuse, increasing their chances of also becoming involved. The camp focuses on four main goals to end this cycle. 

Camp Goals:

  • Mentor youth in developing life goals to become productive members of society 
  • Afirm youth of their worth and value
  • Encourage a relationship with God
  • Build a community among the youth that fosters teamwork and lifelong relationships

Through this page, I am working with a group of volunteers to raise money for this Youth Camp. We hope that you consider sponsoring a youth (ages 11-18yrs) to attend this 3-day educational summer camp. It costs $64 per youth to attend.

This cost includes:

  • Food
  • Housing
  • Activities
  • Equipment

We would like to raise enough donations to sponsor 60 children by Friday, July 25th, 2014. Any dollar amount of donations is greatly appreciated. If you cannot donate financially, we would also appreciate any prayers for our cause. 

*Any donations we collect surpassing the $3,840 needed for the camp will directly benefit the Youth Program of the Rahab Foundation. The extra donations raised will provide resources for the children such as clothing, food, and other daily necessities. Please let me know if you have any questions regarding our fundraising project, the youth camp, or the Rahab Foundation. My email is anshipman@usi.edu. 

Thank you!
