Project Red Light Rescue

Project Red Light Rescue

My daughter is part of the Amped Jr. High group raising money to save young girls from human trafficking, slavery, and prostitution. To find out more, read below, follow the link, or contact me so I can send you more information. Thank you.

Sponsored by Amped Jr. High, a Gateway Church Ministry

Human Trafficking is more than just a cause, it is absolutely unacceptable that children are being kidnapped, sold, and forced into the slave trade.

While the world is waking up to this injustice and figuring out ways to prevent this from happening, there are millions of girls and boys already trapped in the world's red-light districts. It is estimated that there are about 1.2 million children involved in the slave trade in India alone!

This CHAMPIONS Project supports Project Red Light Rescue, a project of Sower of Seeds International, rescuing and restoring women and girls in Asia's largest red-light district.

It costs $1,928 per girl a year to rescue, house, provide medical treatment, counseling, feed, educate, etc. Imagine if you knew and were close to the girls who were trapped... How far would you go to set them free and restore their dreams?

Red Light Rescue

Imagine being a parent barely able to pay bills and someone comes to your home and promises to educate your daughter and find her a job. You agree, hoping to give her a better life. Then she disappears, and you find out she is not being educated. Instead, she is a prostitute, a victim of human-trafficking, beaten and abused daily. Sounds like a nightmare, doesn't it? For 100,000 girls in India, this is reality. To find out how you can help, please visit Red Light Rescue.
