Support and care for children rescued from slavery.
UNICEF defines child trafficking as "the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring or receipt of children for the purpose of exploitation". Every year, 1.2 million children are trafficked, and over half of these children are African. Trafficked children are used in armed conflict, small-scale mining, hazardous work in agriculture and industry, commercial sexual exploitation and domestic labor.
Often, children that escape trafficking have no place to go and don't speak the native language. They end up as street kids with no money or means of getting home.
CREER-Africa is the only center in The Ivory Coast that provides children who have escaped from slavery with a safe place to eat and sleep. In addition to room and board, children living at CREER have access to counseling, academic instruction and vocational training. CREER provides children with the tools necessary to successfully integrate back into their home community.
You can help. Each $25.00 donation provides shelter, education and food for a child liberated from human trafficking.
CREER is dedicated to providing a safe haven for girls who have been rescued from the sex trade. At CREER, these young women get the resources they need - food, education, counseling and in time - renewed hope.
