A note from Tinuke-
WELCOME to my Project Hope Page. I'm happy to be a part of such a great team looking to support an incredible cause! Each leap year I try to do something that seems a bit bigger than me. This year it's the LA MARATHON! I figure, 26.2 miles isn't that far and since I've survived for over 14 months in Los Angeles without a car of my own, I've probably walked most of the marathon route already! But jokes aside, Project Hope is about protecting people who are victims of Human Trafficking/Modern Day Slavery. I couldn't believe how devastatingly common this practice is in 2012 and truly felt compelled to make my own contribution to the cause.

Thanks for your time and see you at the finish line in SANTA MONICA!!!
THE DREAM CENTER wrote - Project Hope LA is a ministry dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and restoration of the lives of women who have become victims of Human/Sex Trafficking. Human/Sex Trafficking is quickly becoming one of the worlds most profitable criminal industries. It is estimated that there are over 27 Million victims in the world. The average age of entry into the commercial sex industry is only 12 to 14 years old. This isn’t simply an international issue…it is happening here, in the United States.
