Partnering with World Vision, SIS is supporting three girls currently in Peru, Ghana and Uganda, (we also have supported a girl in Armenia) by providing a safe home and educational opportunities.
We partnered with Shared Hope to build a home in Negril, Jamaica for women who are victims of human trafficking. The home provides the opportunity to learn a trade in order to become independent and self-supporting. We also supported a Shared Hope visit of four young adults from Nepal who were children of human trafficking victims, in order to tell their story and raise awareness of human trafficking. We were one of five locations in the US. that they visited. We continue to support Shared Hope in their human trafficking awareness.
We also have supported projects for women through Heifer International such as providing farm animals and farm products.
