SEX TRAFFICKING AND SHE DANCES
Posted by Mike Foster:
I remember the first time I learned about sex trafficking. I was 17, and I felt fully debilitated.
I admit I tried to avoid the issue, not knowing what to do about it until last year, when She Dances (founded by Jeremy and Nedra Springer) emerged, full of hope to restore girls, one at a time, who have been rescued from sex trafficking.
Before I knew it, I had been recruited by She Dances, and found myself on a terrace on a rainy day in LA—there we sat; a couple board members, and Jeremy and Nedra, working one step at a time to open a safe home in Honduras.
Our safe home will house six girls 11-19 years old, where they’ll have the opportunity to heal through one-on-one and group therapy sessions, therapeutic activities like gardening, art, and jewelry making, plus they’ll learn everyday skills like cooking and doing laundry.
We’re excited to say we found the perfect home in Tegucigalpa, hired staff and therapists for the house, moved furniture in, and are now trying to finish fundraising to open the home this August.
We’re in the final days of our 200/20 Campaign—200 people committing to $20 monthly will fully fund the home for a year (we need 88 more people).
Together we can give these girls a second chance at life!
