Thank you for your support and commitment to ensuring that we successfully carry out our mission!
As you are aware, the COVID-19 pandemic has adversely affected the world. Our community of survivors are not excluded from the global struggle to survive. One of the inevitable changes we see in this new era is the delivery of services and products; businesses have gone to virtual environment. To mitigate the effects of covid-19 on survivors of human trafficking and domestic violence, we initiated our Virtual Program Expansion to deliver services. What this means is our classes are now delivered online. Our next classes in Computer/Microsoft Office, Financial Literacy, and Business Coaching begins in September. We already have 3 survivors waiting to take these classes. In addition to these we added classes in Coding, and Social Media-messaging, sales, and marketing. Our FREE classes train survivors in new skills, and re-train others for advanced skills to make them work-ready and competent to work in this era of automation.
Our classes have produced 23 computer literate survivors and immigrants who now work remotely. One of our graduates now works as a navigator, helping members of her community to navigate systems for services. In the past, we have seen survivors and victims turn their lives around through the economic resources we provide. This gives them a sense of belonging in the community and also a shift their economic status. Classes enhance their ability to compete with others in the economic world for sustainable income. Having an income keeps them away from trafficking and also helps them to make the right choices. Over 25 individuals have graduated from our skills program; 2 got new jobs, one got promotion on her job, 4 people were enrolled into internships/volunteer programs to sustain their skills, one started Uber driving, another started an internet weight-loss marketing, and while 2 took these skills back to their communities to give back.
We cannot do this without you! Together, we can help our community navigate away from the hardships and disruptions of COVID-19. We can ALL make a difference in these lives!
