Supporting the girls of Tahanan Sta. Luisa. What our girls have been through is beyond many people's comprehension - heartbreaking stories of life on the streets, physical/sexual abuse and prostitution before they even reached 10 years of age. Help us to care, heal and teach our girls.
We are so appreciative of any support - please share our appeal on Facebook. Help us to give our girls hope, hope for a brighter future.
Adolescent girls are one of the most vulnerable and marginalized demographic groups in the Philippines.
TSL offers shelter, recovery & healing for 23 physically/sexually abused and prostituted street girls just like Maria:
Maria never attended school. Neglected & abused by her parents, at 6 years old she ran away. Living on the streets she was hungry & vulnerable - repeatedly raped by street adults, too weak to protect herself. TSL has given her hope - safety, education & opportunities.
The annual fundraising appeal is helping Maria and our other girls to receive the basic support they need. TSL is giving them back their childhood - assisting them in their journey through their social, physical & emotional development and growth, while also supporting them to overcome the traumatic negative experiences of their past.
No donation is too small. We are so appreciative for any support - the care for our girls relies entirely on the kindness and generosity of people like you.
The ultimate goal for TSL is to support our girls in their healing and recovery, facilitate the re-connection with their families (where feasible), and prepare them to be productive and independent members of society in the future.
Please help us to help them - please share our appeal on Facebook. Supporting us on this annual appeal will make such a big difference to the lives of our girls. Our home is giving our girls hope-hope for a brighter future.
