The Psi Alpha Omega Chapter is playing an active role in the fight to end human-trafficking. Atlanta is a major hub, due to our international airport, for this industry. Contrary to what most believe, this is true not only because girls are being imported and exported, but also because others fly in to harm those who live in our communities. That’s right. This is not something that happens only to little girls in underprivileged countries. It’s happening here on American soil and it’s taking place right under our noses. On average, 100 adolescent girls are sexually exploited for money in Georgia on a typical night, according to a report by the Schapiro Group, an Atlanta-based research, marketing and communications firm. Like you, we purposed in our hearts that this is wrong and something must be done! Join us as we financially support a local effort to rehabilitate our young girls who survived this nightmare. The Quest Foundation has awarded Living Water for Girls a matching grant challenge of $40,000 for two critical staff positions. Join us as we help them raise the qualifying $40,000 to receive the grant funding! You can donate here.
Stop Human Trafficking
Did you know that between 100,000 and 300,000 children in America are victims of sex trafficking each year? On average, girls are exploited for commercial sex trade between the ages of 12 and 14. For boys the average age is even younger – between 11 and 13. January 11th is National Anti-Human Trafficking Day. Find out what you can do in your community to support the effort and raise awareness.
