Motivation, positivism and looking forward!!!!!

Hello Donor Family!

One more month comes the most recent updates of our wonderful Project, and this is THANKS to all those who have contributed to the continuity of it!

During this time, our surviving mediators have continued to work hardly and train to rescue many women who live in situations of slavery.

 After the new workers in a team, has continued with a great training with the aim of creating a good team and better intervention.

Therefore, last Monday, November 12, a great international professional coach, came to Apramp to give training to our survivors.

The entire team of survivors intervened and with textual words said "that it had been one of the best formations of my life" or "I needed someone like you right now, to inspire me to be able to move forward and be able to do my job well".

The coach was creating questions, that the participants looked for the possible causes of a situation or mood. The coach was trying to show the way to the survivors.

The objective of this training, which is part of the continuous and cross-sectional training of the project, was based on:

- Help set individual or professional goals.

- Provide a clear focus in different situations

- Make the person someone better.

- Encourages continuous learning

-Discover new skills in the surviving mediators

The coach gave them some basic guidelines to be able to continue with the daily training.

It was totally surprising as training in coach, could influence so much in the surviving mediators.

And as motivation, positivism and looking forward are basic pillars for personal improvement and daily recovery.

So, once again, we say THANK YOU! With your generosity, MORE WOMEN can BE RELEASED from such pain and suffering. And not only that, YOUR DONATIONS help them to START A NORMAL LIFE FREE OF EXPLOITATION.

A Letter from Mary

Mary looking over her very first contract!!
Mary looking over her very first contract!!

Hello Donor Family!

Once again, we write to you to let you know of all of the wonderful things coming from your generosity and willingness to support our project.

Another 3 months have gone by, and once again we have new recruits who have come to the team: 3 women from our protective housing program who have been trained for the Mobile Rescue Unit and who have now been offered contracts to be official members of the team!

We would like to share with you, once again, how grateful we are and, more importantly, how much your support means to these girls and what it means for their future. So, what better way to do that than through a letter one of these 3 women, Mary, wrote to our APRAMP team the day she signed her contract:

 

“APRAMP means a lot to me. They helped me get my documents, work, and education and they even taught me Spanish. I was very nervous the first day I came to APRAMP.

My dream was to be happy, so when I heard I was going to work in housekeeping, I was very happy, seeing its value and knowing I could later get another job [in Spain].

When I started “cleaning” in that house, I got very sad because it reminded me of things in my past and I cried every day, thinking I was so young to be living such painful experiences.

My dream is to help others through the Mobile Rescue Unit. I will try very hard to keep this job because I love being able to help others who suffer like I have.

I am very excited to go out on the street and be a good mediator and treat all of the people who are suffering with love.

I am going to use my strengths to support the fight against human trafficking.

My contract as a socio-cultural mediator means a lot to me. I have the opportunity to meet women and help them, to feel useful, to gain autonomy and to earn money in order to help my family, and I can achieve my life-goals, improve my life and legalize my situation in Spain.

Before getting this contract, I was very nervous and anxious because I didn´t know what was going to come of me, but now I am relaxed and focused on mediation and how to treat people who are going through difficult situations. I hope I do my job well.

Thank you, APRAMP.”

 

With these words, we leave you for now, saying on behalf of Mary and all of the women this project has help, THANK YOU! With your generosity, MORE GIRLS like Mary are able to BE FREED from such pain and suffering. And not only that, your gifts help them BEGIN THEIR JOURNEY TO STARTING A NORMAL LIFE, on their own, and FREE FROM EXPLOITATION.

Please remember to spread the word so we can guarantee more girls have the same rehabilitating and successful story as Mary.

Pay it Forward, Sophia's Story

Sofia's First Day!!
Sofia's First Day!!

It’s that time…time for exciting updates on our Project, which you have so generously helped fund!

Another 3 months have passed, and although it seems like such a short amount of time, a lot sure can happen! Right after our last report we began a new month, and with it, a new season. Coming back from “Semana Santa” (a.k.a. Holy Week) 3 new coworkers joined our team, one being a trafficking survivor who now forms part of the Mobile Rescue Unit, Sophia.

This young lady has gone through the intervention process with us here at APRAMP, participating in different professional training courses and working side by side with social workers to receive the resources and services she needed in order to escape her situation of sexual exploitation. After putting in time and effort to achieve full recovery, Sophia has come full circle and is now part of our team here at APRAMP.

The project, “Rescue and Empower Sex Trafficking Victims”, is one of the most encouraging programs at APRAMP. While every aspect of our work is important, one of our favorite things is to see first-hand the tremendous growth of these women and girls and to see just how far they are able to come, achieving a new life, a new sense of self, and, most importantly, their freedom.

Sophia, just like most women and girls when we first come into contact with them, was distraught, completely hopeless, and desperate to get out of the nightmare she was being forced to live. She has gone through a very rough journey, but she is now on the other side and has come to “pay it forward” and help rescue other women and girls who are suffering the way she has. She said on her first day at work:

“I’m a bit nervous to start a new job, but I am so happy to be here. Without APRAMP’s help, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I want nothing more than to be part of the APRAMP team and “pay it forward” as part of the Mobile Rescue Unit in order to help other women like me.”

This is what we live for. It is beautiful to see how far Sophia has come and where she will get to go in the future, and BY OUR SIDE NONETHELESS!

So, once again, we say THANK YOU! With your generosity, MORE GIRLS like Sophia are able to BE FREED from such pain and suffering. And not only that, your gifts help them BEGIN THEIR JOURNEY TO STARTING A NORMAL LIFE, on their own, and FREE FROM EXPLOITATION.

Please remember to spread the word so we can guarantee more girls have the same rehabilitating and successful story as Sophia.
