Why Economic Empowerment Matters

Have you ever made a mistake when it comes to schooling, employment, or finances? Well, for survivors of child trafficking, a few financial misfortunes can put them at a huge risk for reexploitation.

When a youth’s economic needs aren’t met, they’re vulnerable to traffickers who offer to meet those needs in exchange for sex or exploitative labor. If that youth has already experienced exploitation, they’re at especially high risk for revictimization.
Love146’s Employment and Education program allows us to continue journeying alongside youth in our Survivor Care – letting them know:

“We believe in you. We’re here to walk with you. And if you make a mistake, that’s okay. That’s part of life. You get back up and we just work through it, learn through it, and keep going.”

This program helps youth out of the survival mindset, and into a mindset of hope, where they can build a thriving future for themselves that is from exploitation. When you give today, you’re supporting a young person moving forward into safer situations after some of the hardest things imaginable.

Your generosity makes this work possible. Give today, and help a survivor understand that you believe in them.
