200 girls and 1000s of dreams

New dreams, with confidence
New dreams, with confidence

Last month, we celebrated a milestone in our recovery program for trafficked girls.  Since its beginnings, Hagar's program has supported 200 girls on their journeys toward wholeness.  Many dreams have been realized.  Dreams for education.  A career.  A loving family.  Many new futures are being envisioned. 

Here is the story of one girl, named Srey Mao:

Sold by her own family to a brothel, Srey Mao remembers the pain and the trauma of the place.  She lived for a long time under the impression that her sole value was the $500 her family received for selling her.  Not so anymore.  It has been a journey over years.  But now Srey Mao says confidently, "Now I know I am priceless.  I am more valuable than money."

When you support Hagar's project on Global Giving, you bring more dreams to girls like her.
