Challenge

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.

Solution

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.

Long-Term Impact

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.
