Our Heart for Prevention
Mentorship is key to community change. We pour into the lives of high-risk girls each week through a "girls club" where we provide important training, discipleship and empower them to embrace all that they were created to be.
OUR GOAL AND PURPOSE BEHIND OUR WEEKLY OUTREACH
1. Each girl will come to know her Creator and live a life of hope and freedom!
2. Each girl will have the knowledge and support system so that they will not fall prey to scams of predators.
3. Each girl will become agents of change and hope and light in the darkest of places.
Every Girl is One
We are called to girls no matter where they are at in their journey. Girls living in poverty are uniquely capable of creating a better future. But when a girl reaches adolescence, she comes to a crossroads. When given access to quality education, health care and a support system the trajectory of her life can be forever changed. By the age of ten, girls living in poverty have reached an age that the price of a bad choice is too high to make a mistake. Our heart is to offer support to the girls in the barrio through our outreach so that they can be encouraged in their worth and feel supported through the up’s and down’s they encounter.
We began in a small barrio in the Dominican Republic and have truly never left. We continue to hold little hands giving them the support they need to grow and make choices that will preserve their worth and dignity. This is an opportunity to “roar” against the generations of bondage and sexual perversion. What was meant for dead, we are claiming as life—full of promise and Hope.
We could not do this work without one of our workshop leaders, Wanda. She grew up in the barrio, is raising a family there, and knows she is called to the livelihood of these girls who happen to be her neighbors as well. She gives every Saturday in addition to her full work week and provides mentorship and education for the girls in our outreach program. Her own children have also come alongside her to help her serve and use their hands for the practical needs that come with hosting close to 100 girls every Saturday.
