A new beginning for Vilma

Vilma is a sweet 10 year old girl studying at the Dreamer Center School, which is funded by The GOD’S CHILD Project. She is in 4th grade and at her young age Vilma has already suffered a great deal and has been a victim of poverty and inadequate living conditions, which no child deserves.  Despite of all of her problems Vilma is fighting to move forward and break the bitter chains of poverty through education.

Vilma’s father was in jail for 3 years for sexual aggression towards one of his nephews.  When he was released from jail, he moved back home with his wife and 4 children.  Vilma´s parents earned little income which made it difficult for them to provide their children with proper housing. They lived in one room in poor conditions and all shared one bed. After seeing the family’s need the GOD’S CHILD Project, with the help of a volunteer Service Team, built a home for the family with bunk beds so that each child could sleep in their own bed.

Knowing Vilma’s situation the school psychologist started to see her in order to learn more about her family and help her deal with her family situation.  During one of her sessions with the psychologist, Vilma began to talk about how her father would touch her inappropriately and once the school psychologist learned that Vilma was being sexually abused by her father her case was turned over to ITEMP.

ITEMP notified the authorities so that they could begin an investigation and the father was immediately removed from Vilma’s home to protect her and her siblings.   They still live together with their mother but Vilma and her siblings no longer fear their father and what he might do to them. Vilma continues to do well in school and takes advantage of the free psychological care that the GOD’S CHILD Project has to offer to help her overcome her past and look forward to a brighter future.

Thanks to donors like you we are able to fight for justice and start the healing process for Vilma and other victims of abuse and human trafficking. Please consider continuing your support for ITEMP by making another donation or sharing this story with your friends and family.

 

Thank you for your continued support of ITEMP!
