Moldova is - according to international studies - a primary source country for women being trafficked. It is especially young women from rural areas who are targeted. We have seen this firsthand and know that it can be stopped.
Young girls finishing school at children homes are often sent back to the families they were taken from without any follow-up on their situation. Often young teenage girls are left alone with a grandmother or and older sibling while parents have left for work abroad. These girls are easy targets and often end up in desperat situations.
We can offer young girls under education housing, care and support while teaching them healthy lifestyle skills and building up their self-esteem. We have seen many young lives restored and the love of Christ transforming their minds and lives.

Some of our young girls have gone back home and are now reunited with their parents. Others are still part of our family and growing in maturity. We love to see how they develop into great people and know they will reach their full pontential
