Survivors sharing the love with APRAMP Director
Hello and Happy Holidays to all of our old and new donors!
On behalf of APRAMP, we would first and foremost like to wish you all the happiest of holiday seasons! We have been quite busy over here closing out 2017 and preparing for the beginning of 2018. We are organizing new schedules, looking at individuals who could possibly be joining our team, and reflecting on how we can ensure 2018 is even better and more successful on all fronts than 2017!
Three months ago in our last update on our project, Rescue and Empower Sex Trafficking Victims, we shared with you the excitement of one of our underage girls -who had recently turned 18 years of age- to be a part of the project and begin learning how to detect, identify and help other girls who are suffering like she did. While she was beginning her training, she was still in an early stage of her recovery process. In the past 3 months, this young lady has truly blossomed and progressed tremendously, becoming more and more independent, empowering her and allowing her to continue in her recovery.
As a result, we are happy to announce that this precious young lady will OFFICIALLY be part of the APRAMP team in 2018 and WILL BE HIRED by the organization to form part of the Mobile Rescue Unit! She is so excited to begin her career and move on to the next stage of her life. A short time after beginning her job and saving up a bit of money, she will be able to move out of our shelter and begin her stage of independence.
This is such an amazing thing for her and after everything she has been through, this is such an important step for her and will allow her to begin her new life!
It is THANKS TO ALL OF YOU and your contributions that she has been able to go through this training and helping her prepare for her new life, outside of the shelter and, more importantly, FREE FROM SUFFERING!
EVERY girl who goes through this project is starting a process of beginning a new life, and currently we have 5 other girls who will potentially be able to join the project once they complete their adaptation stage, as they have just recently been rescued from sexual exploitation and joined APRAMP’s recovery program. After a few months, surely some of these beautiful girls will ALSO be able to begin this process. In fact, I´m sure you will hear something of the sort in our next update!!
That said, once again, on behalf of all of APRAMP and all of the women and girls we are able to help through the Mobile Rescue Unit and through this project, thank you for your financial support. Your donations are more than money; they are opportunities for a NEW LIFE. So, as we bring in the New Year, we are ready to bring in MORE new life!
Never forget the importance of your financial support, and please help us to spread the word and keep raising money. Every dollar donated goes directly towards saving girls and young women.
