I have been given the opportunity to work full time in the area of human trafficking on a volunteer basis. I am completing this work with an organization called Seeds of Hope. This organization, while Christian-based, is dedicated to working in Costa Rica with children vulnerable to drugs, and sex and labor trafficking. Their program uses “clubhouses” which provide a variety of classes (vocational and educational). They are also actively working with the Costa Rican government to work on this ongoing problem. They are currently working with CONATT (The National coalition against the trade of immigrants and the human trafficking of persons) and CONACOES (The National Commission to combat the commercial sexual exploitation of children and adolescents). I will function as an English teacher in their organization to empower children to gain English skills that they can use in school and for their future employment.
I will be working with Seeds of Hope for at least a year. It will cost roughly $5,000 over the course of year. I am hoping to have assistance with some of these finances. Regardless if you donate or not, please think and pray for me and my hopeful success in reaching and helping these children and their families. This is greatly appreciated.
I thank you for taking the time to read this and considering the importance of this new employment. I ask for both financial assistance as well as your continuing thoughts and prayers on reaching those in human trafficking. Thank you again and remember any amount helps.
