Hope for Justice expands into Africa
Street children are incredibly vulnerable to trafficking and are often targeted by predatory gangs who force them into sexual exploitation, domestic servitude and forced labour. Helping street children and getting them to safe, caring families massively reduces their vulnerability to predatory traffickers. In Africa, Hope for Justice is doing world-class outreach and aftercare work with individuals, and works for structural reform.
Our work in Africa is reaching a huge number of people every year:
1) Over 4,000 children in outreach on the streets
2) Over 800 children were reintegrated into a family setting
3) Over 1,300 caregivers were supported in the reintegration process
4) Over 4,000 women joined our self-help groups
5) Over 12,000 children benefitted from a caregivers participation in the self-help groups
In total, more than 33,000 children and more than 9,000 adults benefited from our work in Africa in the last year.
