Summary

150 high risk teenage girls will receive basic nutrition, access to transportation, financial literacy, art therapy, and compassionate care and mentorship allowing them full recovery from trafficking.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

FAIR Girls will provide care to formerly sex trafficked girls in Washington D.C., the Balkans, Russia, and Uganda. It achieves this by providing food, shelter, transportation, art therapy, life skills and job training, and financial literacy. FAIR Fund also aims to ensure their basic needs are met so as to create a safe passage to a brighter future. "Each girl deserves to be safe, get to school, find a job, and learn to trust herself and her community again," -Executive Director, Andrea Pow

How will this project solve this problem?

150 girl survivors will receive housing assistance and life skills classes, including 8 hours a week of art therapy and financial literacy education. "I feel safe when I make jewelry. I use the money I earn to pay for my apartment." -Ana* in Serbia

Potential Long Term Impact

The project will give life and job skills to 150 teen girl survivors of trafficking and give them a chance to learn skills in jewelry making and selling so that they can earn the money they need to take care of themselves and lead safer lives.
