WHY IT MATTERS
Free to Shine believes children should be in schools, not brothels. So we identify girls at high risk of being targeted by traffickers, get her a uniform and a bike, fill a bag with books and pens, and visit her regularly to keep her in school and keep her safe. We equip with an education to prevent sex trafficking. Prior to being enrolled on Free To Shine’s scholarship program our girls often missed years of schooling. With exams coming up they often require additional classes to get them ready and set them up to succeed. They must pass each exam to progress onto the next year of school. Exam preparation classes are daily classes that take place after school in the 4 subjects she finds the most difficult. This extra tuition assists our girls to pass their exams, allowing them to continue school.
