We were delighted when nine girls graduated from one of our training units earlier this month, as part of the effort to give survivors a new start. In our programme, we help those we’ve rescued to develop new skills, move into work and become financially independent. The girls enrolled in the programme receive a weekly stipend, as well as free transport and meals. We were so proud to celebrate this moment with their families and guardians.
At Justice and Care, we know that helping survivors cannot simply be about meeting basic needs - true rehabilitation must mean transformation, empowerment and building personal resilience. So, as well as new skills and training, our programmes work to reduce the vulnerability of girls being re-trafficked and help them become powerful role models in their communities. We wish each of them the very best as they begin the next phase of their journey in freedom - they each prove that transformation is possible.
