Transition

For many of those who are rescued from a life of slavery, and bondage, there is not necessarily a clear path to follow once they leave a rehabilitation centre, and so we have taken steps to aid them in the transition as they start a new life of freedom. During their time at the centres, we provide them with education and skills that will result in increased job opportunities and higher quality of life. At the same time, we also try to connect them to new jobs, new homes, and new communities.

Many of the people we help are, sadly, quite young, and so in these cases we try to provide them with the education and experiences of youth that slavery made impossible. We connect with villages and communities that our partners have worked in and trust, and find loving homes that accept these marginalized children into their own families and help them not as projects, but as children who deserve a loving family. We also try and help these women and girls to pursue their goals and dreams. One way of doing this is helping them with post-secondary education. Especially with adult women, we focus on providing them with education and skill sets such as computer literacy, sewing, home care, or administration skills that will be helpful in establishing a new life after their rescue.
