Our Projects - What We Do

We have come a long way since 1989 when we started education programs for a handful of children of sex workers and palliative care for people affected by AIDS. We now serve over 19,000 beneficiaries each year running 22 projects across four key areas, education, healthcare, rehabilitation, and awareness, that help our beneficiaries thrive in life.


Our services are primarily for women ad children and LGBT communities affected by poverty and the commercial sex industry.  We help to fight HIV and AIDS and to end human trafficking, improve education for deprived children, and campaign for justice to bring rescue, rights, and rehabilitation to those that need it.

We never give up because we know, first hand, just how resilient our beneficiaries have to be, we've been there every step of the way...
