Four doors lead to lasting freedom for a rescued girl.
- Business ownership
- And strengthening families.
Marriage is an institution ordained by God to benefit and strengthen society. At Rapha House, we guide our girls in appropriate interactions with the opposite sex. And we encourage relationships that are culturally appropriate and in keeping with high values.
This is huge. For in many of the cultures in which we work, trafficked and exploited girls are regarded as throwaways. By encouraging respectful and appropriate opposite-sex relationships, some of our girls have gone on to create families of their own.
This is a remarkable achievement. One that we continue to promote. And one that opens the door to lasting freedom for a rescued girl.
All of our girls deserve to live freely. But not all of our girls will marry or become business owners. For these girls, we seek to find opportunities for meaningful and dignified employment.
Some work in factories. Others in marketplaces. Still others in offices. Some even work for Rapha House! Restaurants. Banks. Travel agencies. Hotels. The list is endless. The goal is the same—to find reasonable employment that allows girls to remain free.
Rapha House has an aggressive and generous program that encourages girls with an entrepreneurial spirit to launch businesses of their own. Some have started their own sewing shops. Others have begun their own beauty salons. While others run their own retail shops. All have found real independence.
It’s a fact. Many families of trafficked children were not complicit with the traffickers. Rather they were duped. And it’s a fact that many of our girls return home whenever their families are evaluated by our social workers to be safe. For this reason, we work hard to strengthen families with solid information to avoid re-victimization; and we offer them with economic opportunities that help them and their children to remain free.
Your gifts to Rapha House help us open the doors to lasting freedom. And few gifts are more precious than that.
