Challenge

When Ida moved to Indonesia with Henry for her husband's job, she never expected her husband to become so violent. He had become more and more difficult when they lived in the USA, but moving overseas made him so much worse. Ida needs to get Henry home and away from the abuse.

Solution

Ida and Henry will be able to come home! Ida already has some money hidden away, and her and Henry's American passports. Once we are able to raise the other $900 , she will bring Henry home to live with her parents. There they can recover from abuse and begin their lives over again.

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.
