Challenge

Geneva is desperate to get home to safety with Sage. $1200 will purchase airlines tickets for them to get safely back to the USA.

Solution

Geneva and Sage will be able to live their lives back in the USA. The organization has already identified safe housing for Geneva and Sage and have found a pro-bono lawyer to help Geneva gain custody of Sage in the USA.

Long-Term Impact

The project serves 500 women per year empowering them to find alternatives to a life of violence so their children grow up in violence free homes with their self-esteem in tact with the hope of stopping the cycle of violence in future generations.
