BENEFITING: WORLD HELP
I recently visited Northern India where I observed first hand young girls being forced into the sex trade by cultural norms, poverty and desperation. I also met an amazing man (Romchan) and his team that are doing something to reverse this 500 year old custom.
He's developed a holistic approach that intercepts these girls, as young as 6, before they are forced into the industry. His organization provides them education and ultimately returns them to the community as nurses, engineers, teachers, etc.
The protection and education his organization provides changes everything for them and thier families. They earn 4X what they would as sex workers and model to other young girls and their parents there is a better way.
As you may know, I worked at World Help for a brief stint and know the organization and Romchan very well. This is personal! Not often in one's life can you see such a direct effect on others. If we can raise this money we will transform an entire village that has been living on the sex trade for 5 centuries; a fresh water well will be installed, girls will be protected and educated, mothers trained into a sustainable trade, a pastor and church installed...A village of 300-500 will be won for Christ and dozens if not hundreds of girls saved from unimaginable suffering.
Will you join me in this effort? We need to raise $12,000 for phase 1 of the project which will take most of 2017 and then another $12,000 for phase II which will take most of 2018. Like I said, this one is personal. For every dollar you give I will match it until we reach the $25K goal. Join me! I hope to invite you to travel with me and my family when the project is complete to see first hand the transformation. It will be life changing not only for those served by your generosity but for you, me and our families.
