The aim is to restore dignity and self-worth, and to help girls find viable alternatives for their lives. Along with providing salaries in a Fair Trade job, your support has enabled the Daughters' center to expand to now offer:
- medical treatment within the clinic with HIV testing
- therapy and counselling
- community-based accommodations for girls under 20 who want to live on-site
- a day program for the very young children (usually siblings or children of sex workers) who live in the brothel to provide intervention through education.
So... a giant thanks! I’ve also included a photo of a few of the girls so you can see the faces of those you’ve supported, as well as a few photos of their creations. We will be adding silk garters in early 2009, and are working on silk screened ring pillows to match our invitations!As a final note, we are trying to gather photos to send back to the girls of their items being used in weddings and other events. If you have a photograph of your ring pillow, flowers or sash in action, please, please email it to us so that we can pass it along.
