This report documents updates from the Talia Agler Girls Shelter(TAGS) – A Girls shelter Based within Nairobi metropolitan which provides a safe and stable living environment, education, basic life skills training, health screening, referrals and assistance with family reunion or appropriate placement beyond the shelter to trafficked and abused girls. Between September and November 30th 2012, the TAGS benefited 17 girls aged between 11- 18 years old. Of these, 3 girls have babies – one born at the shelter and is adorable. During this period the following services were provided to rescued girls using funds from our supporters:
According to the Shelter Manager demand for the services provided at TAGS is high, with the partners calling daily with new reports of underage girls being rescued from trafficking, physical abuse and rape. Unfortunately, the Shelter cannot take all of them in due to limited space and resources. But for those who enter the gates of the Shelter, it is a sanctuary, and the services provided offer a chance for rehabilitation and healing.
We take this opportunity to thank you for all your support to the TAGS. Your commitment to strengthen the potentiality of the less privileged through advocacy, temporary shelter, skills training, psycho-social support and economic empowerment in order to become productive members of the society is valuable to us and is greatly appreciated.
