"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.
INTRODUCING Worthwhile Wear's "Feed 45" campaign:
Worthwhile Wear is working with one of its partners, Home of Hope, in Miraj India to help bring 45 children a healthy balanced diet for 2014. The cost is $500 a month, and all funds raised go directly to feeding these children who were born in the brothels and abandoned by their parents. Sadly 20% of the children at Home of Hope have HIV and are on medical treatment for this disease.
Worthwhile Wear is excited to introduce our new program; "The Well."
Providing help to the exploited women both Internationally and Domestically has always been our priority, and now with "The Well" program we will begin providing long-term aftercare and housing to women in the U.S. through partnerships with other local agencies. If you are interested in partnering with us for this U.S. based response, we would love to hear from you. Our goal is to have services available and a team in place to reach the local need by the Summer of 2014.
Consider how you can support this local response. Worthwhile Wear is in process to secure a property, hire new staff, and finalize "The Well" program, but none of this will be possible without financial support. 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.
