In the Philippines, children in poverty are sometimes forced into desperate situations to help provide basic needs for their families. Poverty and lack of education can make prostitution appear to be their only option left. Parents are forced to travel long distances to find work, which leaves kids alone and especially vulnerable to exploitation, continuing the cycle of poverty. Your purchase through Threads of Hope helps end that cycle. You provide dignified work for families so they can stick together, avoid exploitation, and pursue education to set a new trajectory for their lives.
