“I did not choose the darkness. People tricked me. They brought me to a place and locked me inside a small room. They forced me to take a pill. Darkness surrounded me like a blanket. I was lost and confused. Even when I was rescued, I felt the same. Like I could not escape.”
Kyky's story echoes the experiences of so many other young girls who have suffered the trauma and violation of sexual exploitation. Kyky is the whole reason Hagar walks the entire painstaking journey to wholeness. Because of your support we can provide the long-term aftercare that girls who have survived human trafficking need.
Now, after seven years of aftercare at Hagar, Kyky is strong. She has courage and hope for the future. With big dreams in her heart, she has finally escaped the darkness.
Hagar Vietnam has provided healing and recovery to survivors of trafficking and abuse. Here's a snapshot of what we've accomplished in two years:
However, Hagar Vietnam’s successes are not merely measured in statistics and numbers. The long-term model of care was developed so that the needs of each, individual person are considered, as many of Hagar Vietnam’s most successful women are the very individuals that have transcended the darkest and most traumatic of situations.
Thank you for your generosity and ongoing commitment to these women.
Saved from a life of slavery, every girl has different needs. But one need is always the same. Education. Hagar's catch-up school in Cambodia teaches two grades per year. Once students are caught up to their age peers, they are integrated into a private school.
Last month, students at Hagar's School shared their dreams for the future with their teachers. It is our priveledge to share the girl's dreams with you:
We know that education can make dreams happen. Thank you for your continued support.
