As I reflect back on the past year, I am in awe of what we have achieved with your support. I love to share the accomplishments of our small and mighty FAIR Girls team and the resilient, courageous survivors whom we serve in pursuit of our mission to end human trafficking, one life at a time.
FAIR Girls’ mission is deeply rooted in reducing the barriers faced by young women and girls being trafficked and assisting those survivors referred to us, not only in safely liberating themselves but also in having the skills, resources, and support they need to remain free. Over the last fifteen years, FAIR Girls has been able to make great strides in identifying and helping to close the “on-ramps” into exploitation and trafficking — through our prevention education curriculum and community outreach and training programs — while increasing access to the “exit-ramps” from exploitation — through age-appropriate, specialized direct services, safe transitional housing, advocacy, and support.
I ask that you take a moment to read our first Annual Report by clicking here - because it tells the story of our partnership and your financial investment in the safety, healing, and empowerment of each survivor that we serve and their individual transformational journeys. We celebrate these successes because each number represents the inspiring story of a survivor who was able to get the life-saving support she needed to heal and start to transform her future. But there are still too many girls and young women who are not getting the essential help they so desperately need. That is why FAIR Girls is asking our supporters to continue to invest deeply in the safety and restoration of these survivors. Your continued generous support will enable FAIR Girls to improve upon and expand the capacity of each of our life- saving programs.
I am also very excited to share that you have the chance to do twice the good with one donation! One generous donor has agreed to match, dollar for dollar, all donations made to this critical fundraising campaign by midnight on January 10, 2020 up to $10,000. We just need your help to do it! This is a tremendous opportunity to double your impact in the fight to end human trafficking.
Your support can and does change lives! Will you help us meet our year-end goal of raising $75,000?
On behalf of the survivors we serve, the FAIR Girls Staff and Board of Directors, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your continued support this year. We hope you will join us in reflecting on all that we have accomplished together this year and continue to help us meet the needs of survivors of human trafficking along their journey out of the darkness and into the light.
