"Preventing entrance into and reaching girls already in the sex slave trade while addressing the root cause, poverty, and by providing women and girls an alternative means of income and a NEW life."
Worthwhile Wear exists to reach and restore girls from forced prostitution, and more importantly help prevent girls from ever entering it. We target highly trafficked areas both internationally and domestically, and offer women the opportunity to overcome two primary factors which are at the root of sex trafficking; poverty and lack of education.
This solution is offered through vocational training centers which teach women how to make wears, such as jewelry, handbags, and clothing, which are sold to provide them employment. Additionally, the women are offered free education, a safe place to stay, and restorative programs geared toward encouraging personal growth and reestablishing self-worth.
Worthwhile Wear is excited to introduce our US based program, "The Well, " offering long-term housing and aftercare for sexually exploited and trafficked women in the greater Philadelphia area. Phase 1 renovations at our 83 acre property are nearly complete, and our new staff are starting the first week of September 2014.
Please consider how you can support this local response. We have all the pieces in place, but this program wouldn't be possible without our dedicated volunteers and financial supporters. Please consider becoming a monthly partner by clicking HERE, and you too will be doing your part to end modern-day slavery.
Our model and objective is unique. Worthwhile Wear's goal is to start and manage as many vocational centers as possible. We want to provide a means of escape to as many girls as possible, and with our model of partnering with other like-minded organizations, we can make this a reality. Help us with our goal of starting 2 new vocational centers every year with a monthly tax-deductible CONTRIBUTION.
