Free to be a Child

In action!
In action!

Greetings to our donors!

Once again we write to share with you the progress of our project, Rescue and Empower Sex Trafficking Victims, which you all have been so generous to support. Our organization believes strongly in the work we do, and every day we seek to put all of our efforts into making sure those women and girls who are being exploited and violated on a daily basis can receive the help and support they need in order to be rescued and freed from the terrible nightmare they are living. APRAMP, through this project and because of the money gifted to us by YOU, is able to do that. We say it in all of our reports, but I feel it is important you know, that every dollar (or pound) goes DIRECTLY towards rescuing and saving the lives of young girls and women.

In the past 3 months, APRAMP has been VERY busy supporting police in raids and detecting and identifying EVERY DAY women and girls who are being used and forced to have sexual relations with people for money - money that they never see. All of this work is done by the survivors who, through this project, which YOU support, are trained and educated in order to do so. On a daily basis, this team of brave and valiant women speak to and make contact with over 200 women and girls who are in possible situations of sex trafficking and exploitation.

Through their amazing work in detection and identification, APRAMP has taken in 2 under-aged girls who were rescued -through collaboration efforts with law enforcement- in the protective housing program. One is 16 years old, the other is 17. Both of these girls have suffered tremendously, but now, they are FREE because of the money YOU have given to help support this project.

The newest girl who joined our protective housing program, Tiffany, who is 16 years old, has flourished over the past month and has become the teenager she should be. When she first arrived, because of the trauma she had lived, she was always quite, she kept to herself, and she never had a smile on her face. BUT, TODAY she is smiling, developing the typical “teenager flare”, making jokes, and smiling. It is amazing to see the change in her. She is now FREE to be a child.

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.

APRAMP cannot stress enough how grateful we are for your support or how important your funds have been and are to us. That said, we still have a long way to go in our project. Please continue to spread the word to friends, family and co-workers so we can continue to rescue girls like Tiffany.

THANK YOU!!!

Victims to SURVIVORS right before your own eyes!

It is that time again! The time where we, APRAMP, get to share remarkable news with our generous donors about the progress that has taken place since the last report was sent 3 months ago. You all are an integral part of the success that occurs in APRAMP, and it is always a pleasure to share details about how exactly your support has made a difference. The money you all have donated goes DIRECTLY towards changing the lives of women and girls who have suffered tremendously and whose human rights and dignity have been gravely violated. Your donations bring hope and, even more importantly, they give back lives.

Since the last report in January, our project has received over $3,100.00! It is incredible to see all of the support, and every month we continue to be amazed. The team at APRAMP believes in this project (and it is truly one of a kind), and it does not cease to amaze and excite us when other individuals get on board and help us out. It will never get old!

Back in January, we shared that there were 7 new faces in the training process to be Social Agents and go out onto the streets to make direct contact with women and girls in situations of trafficking and/or exploitation. 3 of them were victims who were living in the organization’s protective housing and rehabilitation center. That said APRAMP is extremely enthusiastic to share that ALL 3 have graduated from treatment and have been hired by APRAMP to work as part of the Mobile Rescue Unit with their fellow survivors.

The money raised these past few months has helped finance their training program, which they have now completed, making them official members of the Mobile Rescue Unit! Now, they go out onto the streets with veteran team members helping detect, identify and rescue victims of human trafficking. They are now helping women and girls who have gone through the exact same situation every single day.

One of these 3 survivors mentioned the other day, “I love being able to help people. No one should ever have to go through what I went through, and it makes me stronger every day being able to show them there is a way out. I love my new life!”

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, thank you for your financial support. What you are doing is irreplaceable.

Please pass on the information of the website: globalgiving.org, Project “Rescue and Empower Sex trafficking survivor. We really want to reach our goal so we can continue to make a difference and fight this terrible crime of human trafficking!

Again, we cannot say it enough...THANK YOU!!

THE MOBILE RESCUE UNIT IS GROWING QUICKLY!

Once again, we here at APRAMP, have the pleasure to update all of you, our generous donors, on the work we have been doing over the past 3 months and share with you the impact your support has had on the actual lives of women and girls who have suffered severe trauma. While these individuals have had extremely rough circumstances, YOU have helped transform them into SURVIVORS who are beginning a NEW life FREE of exploitation.

Our team at APRAMP is tremendously grateful for all of the support you all have shown over the past 3 months. Since our last report in October, we have raised an astounding $3,763.86. This is BY FAR more than we have ever received during the three month periods. This money has changed our work in ways you may not be able to imagine.

Due to the immense success in fundraising in the last period, APRAMP’s Rescue Mobile Unit, the group of recovered sex trafficking victims who have chosen and been trained to detect, identify and rescue others CURRENTLY being trafficking or exploited, has grown very quickly! The money raised has allowed us to finish the training process with 4 survivors and begin training with 3 victims who are currently receiving care from APRAMP and who are living in its protective housing and rehabilitation center.

We now have SEVEN new faces in the office – faces that have gone from emitting pain and sadness, to emitting hope and joy. The role these women play in APRAMP, as part of the Mobile Rescue Unit, is life-changing both for them and for the hundreds of girls and women who they will come into contact with on a DAILY basis, helping them to understand there is a way out.

One of our staff, who has witnessed first-hand the recovery process of all of these 7 new members of the Mobile Rescue Unit shared:

“Wow. I am truly in awe. It is incredible to see the changes in each and every one of these brave women. Seeing how their demeanor and personality change from the time they enter into contact with APRAMP until their incorporation into the Mobile Rescue Unit, it is as though they are almost two different people. It gives me pure joy to see how far each of them has come; it is actually my motivation. It is what keeps me going, and what gives me the fuel to continue working with such a heavy issue. A survivor’s smile released after so many years filled with fear, sadness and pain is one of the most precious sites I’ve ever seen”.

On behalf of all of the survivors who now can enjoy all of their rights, I say, thank you for your financial support. We greatly appreciate your donation and willingness to help support our project. Please pass on the information of the website: globalgiving.org, Project “Rescue and Empower Sex trafficking survivor”. We really want to reach our financial goal so we can continue to help change lives!

Again, we cannot say it enough...THANK YOU!!
