Hogar San Jose Home provides shelter, food, emotional support, education and love to more than 100 girls that go through our Home during the year. A judge has taken them away from their home because they were sexually abused and battered by someone in their own family. The new environment helps the girls brake away from the abusive pattern in which they grew up.
Violence and sexual abuse affects many young girls in Argentina. Even if someone outside their family circle notices it, and denounces it to the authorities, is difficult to provide them with a safe environment where they can recover their self esteem and break away from this pattern.
This project will enable the survival of a safe environment where 35 girls at a time can receive quality education, psychological and medical care to help them heal physically and mentally from prior abuse and start recovering their dignity and self esteem.
This project will help more than 100 girls a year grow into educated and emotionally healthy young women with tools and resources to take care of themselves, and rise out of poverty and violence.
