For young women in Moldova, the threat of human trafficking is a sobering reality. Without many options for employment, traffickers often target girls who are searching for a way out of poverty.
But World Orphans along with our Moldovan church partners are working to break this cycle.
Through transition homes for girls who have graduated from institutionalized orphanages, teenaged girls can live in a family environment where they will be safe from trafficking.
In these transition homes, the girls can also make plans for the future by pursuing higher education and vocational training.
With just sewing machines and computers, these girls can attain self-sustainability through a viable career.
To create a healthy work environment and provide necessary equipment including computers and sewing machines, World Orphans is raising additional funds for this project.
