This shelter will provide clothes, food, and allow the girls to learn the necessary skills through the trauma they have faced. Children who were victim to sexual abuse exploitation need help to process what has happened to them. Lastly, these girls will be able to undergo a mentoring program to help maintain stability and self-worth.
