EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2012
An estimated 274 kids are trafficked every day in Indonesia; that's about 100,000 per year. 30% of these children are sold into sexual slavery (that's 82 per day.). Bali is one of the worst hot spots in Indonesia for both child trafficking and child sex tourism.
Sacred Childhoods Foundation's Project COCAC [Combatting Organized Crimes Against Children] (www.sacredchildhoods.org) is focussing on three issues: child trafficking for the purpose of sexual exploitation, child trafficking for the purpose of organ removal and child sexual abuse by international paedophile networks. Project COCAC will deliver an international and Indonesia-wide awareness and prevention campaign through media and social media; is creating strong working relationships with international and national law enforcement agencies, NGOS and government agencies to share information, facilitate raids and support legal proceedings against offenders; and is creating a safe house and therapeutic center in Bali (The Sanctuary) where rescued children can recover with the support of a specialist team, and a lot of love, nurturing and emotional support.
I am volunteering for Sacred Childhoods Foundation to help raise money to build The Sanctuary in Bali: a secure residential facility where kids rescued from traffickers and sex abuse can be healed, helped and educated, and then reintegrated back into their communities (if safe to do so). Human trafficking and its human cost is the scourge of our times.
SCF needs a Fundraising Manager for four months, until they can get an overseas volunteer placed in the role. The money I raise wil go to cover a stipend for myself. Any and all donations greatly appreciated.
