• We believe that each person is unique and precious. A life may be jostled, devastated, even traded. Dignity and human rights may be shattered, but a person still has immense value in our eyes and in the eyes of God ! Most victims of human trafficking are forced to sell their bodies, whereas others have suffered severe abuse that has pushed them onto the streets. The street is never a real choice !

     

    The street can never bring happiness. The street destroys and robs a person of her/his innocence, and of the desire to live. It’s never a question of « easy money », but of an extremely high price to pay. Violence and fear are daily « companions » …

  • About us

    We are women, men, both young and older, deeply touched by the plight of people forced into prostitution.

     

    We have been trained to truly meet these people; to listen attentively to both their words and their hearts.

     

    This is much more than a humanitarian action. It’s coming close to and appreciating a person for who she/he is, and not for what she/he does.

    On the street

    • By day and by night, in and outside cities, we meet with more than 195 people. The majority are women, but we also know a number of transsexuals.
    • We meet with each person, as and where she/he is ; with respect for personal convictions and expectations.
    • We offer prayer towards healing of damaged emotions, for those who desire to be accompanied.

    Off the street

    • We accompany women and men who are in the process of reconstruction as they leave the street. Working on the street results in severe physical and psychological trauma.
    • We accompany young, isolated mothers.
    • We organize celebrations ( birthday parties, Christmas parties …) as well as cooking classes where people can be valued through sharing a part of their culture.
    • Thanks to gifts received, Hope and Joy also, at times, finances reinsertion projects,
      school fees, driving licences,  …
    • We have the great joy of experiencing baptisms and child presentations within the church.
