We invite women and girls in brothels to experience freedom from their lives in the sex industry.
We equip exploited women and girls with the tools they need to build an independent life through our holistic care programs and life skills training.
We provide specialized vocational training to help the women develop future careers in fields such as graphic design, photography and accounting.
