Summary

Compassion First provides long-term, hope-filled solutions for survivors of child sexual trafficking. Our flagship aftercare home, Sarah's House, is located in Indonesia. Operating in a vulnerable area within a severely under-served country, Sarah's House needs to serve as a multifunctional center, providing not only aftercare but intake and stabilization services.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Indonesia has over 237 million people & 17,508 islands--sex trafficking is a thriving industry there. Since the beginning of our field work, CF has experienced, first hand, the lack of services & NGO's engaged in assisting survivors. We are the first U.S. organization to be operating there & the only organization to be providing long-term/comprehensive services for such a specific need. As knowledge of our work spreads, we will reach capacity at our shelter and will need more intake support.

How will this project solve this problem?

Our presence in the field has led to strong partnerships with Indonesian Governmental Organizations, police departments, and growing relationships with other local humanitarian NGO's. We anticipate an influx of referrals, reporting of trafficking cases and police intervention/activity. Meeting the regular needs of day-to-day operation provides the highest quality living environment for survivors, and makes more room for police to conduct rescues.

Potential Long Term Impact

With the regular operational needs met, we can grow towards reaching capacity in serving our maximum of 25 residents. Our long term goal is to underwrite the facility and its residents so we can continue expanding in other areas of Indonesia. We hope to build a sustainable and replicable model to open other shelters in the coming years.
