Marian became involved in prostitution when she was 15 years old.  

She ran away from a county group home and met a person who introduced her to prostitution. 

At the age of 20, she reached out to Children of the Night to enroll in our ZOOM one on one tutoring program for the High School Diploma. 

A criminal justice victim's service specialist had suggested Marian call Children of the Night to enroll in our online tutoring.

Marian began tutoring for her high school diploma on

June 21, 2021, and after 10 (1 hour) sessions of tutoring she passed the test for the GED – California’s State High School Diploma on July 30th, 2021.

Marian is pregnant and is due this month. Her goal was to complete her high school diploma so she can enroll in a cosmetology program.

Children of the Night's 2021 Global Tutoring

Boy Tutoring
Boy Tutoring

From January 1 to August 27, 2021, Children of the Night Tutored 2,746 tutoring hours to 61 sex trafficked or high risk students to 7 programs in 5 countries including Ecuador, India, Kenya, Tanzania, and Nepal.

There were 44 ESL Students and 17 Math Students.

            47 were female

            14 were male

            57 were under the age of 18

             4 were 20 – 26 years of age and mostly represented staff

 

 

The ripples of our global tutoring program are so very exciting.  In Ecuador, a 17-year-old boy has learned enough English his mother, a single parent, was able to obtain employment as a housekeeper for an American family.  Each week the mother and son go to the home and the son can help translate English for the mother to complete her job.

In Tanzania, our girls are from 10 to 18 years of age, and they are always so eager to learn and ask lots of questions.  Last week one of the girls had to repeat an assessment test she had failed.  She scored 100% on the retest and you could hear the screams of job when she learned her score. 

In one year, our girls in Tanzania move from no English to 7th or 8th grade English.  They are always on time and have their supplies ready.

When Officer Owen from Georgia called Children of the Night, we were ready to help. Yvette had gone on a girl’s trip to Miami and her friend convinced her to try stripping for extra money. She was given ecstasy and alcohol to relax her.

Yvette’s friend stole her identification and left her stranded because Yvette refused to continue stripping.  

Yvette asked a friend to drive her to the police department to make a report on her stolen documents. 

She was stranded and couldn’t even board a plane back to Boston.

Our director of case management asked the officer to confirm Yvette’s mother would meet Yvette when she arrived at the Boston airport.

The officer confirmed but the family did not have money for the airline ticket.

We agreed to pay for her airline ticket home and needed Officer Owen to help Yvette get through TSA because she was without identification.

Once she arrived home safely, Yvette contacted Children of the Night case managers who are working on an application for government identification, as well as clothing, education, and medical services.
