Prevent Human Trafficking by Funding the Arts

You may already know that human trafficking is a 150 BILLION dollar industry that exploits children, women, and men.  There are so many wonderful organizations focused on the rescue and recovery of survivors and they are providing services that are needed worldwide.  I too have a heart for aiding survivors of sexual abuse, but I want to talk about prevention for a minute.  I have heard sexual abuse survivors say they didn't know it was wrong as children too many times to count.  Regardless of the person, children need to know how to speak up for themselves, how to identify their safe adults, and how to say NO to the unsafe adults.  They need to know they have safe adults they can go to that will believe them no matter what is said.  They have to know how to identify when they are in an unsafe situation and what to do about it.  Where does that start?  It starts at home and requires intentional conversations and safe outlets.  I want to provide that for parents, teachers, and the children they care about.  Training parents on how to talk to their children about body safety and giving them the tools to do so.  Providing a safe space for children to share their thoughts and concerns in whatever format they see fit.  Painting, drawing, writing, sculpting, singing, acting, and the list can go on and on.

The funds that you so graciously donate will be used to provide resources to give to parents as well as training.  These resources will be sourced from a variety of places like educate2empower.  They will also receive a variety of books such as "Some Secrets Should Never Be Kept", by Jayneen Sanders to start important conversations in the home.  Helping both parents, teachers, and childcare providers understand how important communication between them is.  They will also go towards art supplies that will be used by at-risk youth to help them express themselves in whatever way they choose.  This will allow for red flags to be caught and give the child an outlet which will aid in preventing them from going to deadly alternative routes.  The program will also aid child sexual abuse survivors as they recover and try to heal from the crime that was committed against them.

Your support will mean the world to not only me as you help me fulfill the call on my life from God, but the children, parents, childcare providers, and teachers that you will help.  Help us teach our kids how to protect themselves and the grown-ups that love them to protect and teach them what they need to know.
