Vocational Training for Sexually Abused Orphaned Teenage Mothers

Provide funds necessary for vocational training, medical needs, counselling for a home, in Embilipitya Sri Lanka, which houses sexually exploited teenage mothers from the age of 10-18 years along with their infants. This home has 18 resident teenagers and 12 infants and  at this time.  6 are pregnant. 

These young girls were victimized due to poverty, death of parents, mothers  gone abroad for employment, fathers addicted to drugs & alcohol and lack of parental guidance & protection.  Dishonesty & merciless acts of adults  ruined these young lives.  

Our goal is to help rehabilitate them so they can return to society as productive citizens. Estimated cost $17,376/.
