From Trash to Treasure

I'd like to share with you a project that is dear to my heart...There is a dump in Managua, Nicaragua called La Chureca where thousands of people live! The girls as young as 9 years old are sold into prostitution so their families can get first pick of the garbage! There is a mission organization called Forward Edge International that encountered this atrocity and had a vision to give these girls an alternative by creating a place of refuge called Villa Esperanza (Village of Hope). Here the girls are given their own bed, new clothes, food, health care and education in a beautiful sheltered environment. Check out if you would like more info on sponsoring one of these little treasures!! Here's a picture of my sponsored child...her name is Kenia, she is 13 years old and enjoying her new promising future...
 Check out this pic of the dump...
Imagine smelling putrid garbage, smoke and dead animals 24/7!!

Check out the incredible new homes designed for these girls!!

There are currently 23 precious girls who have been rescued from the dump!!
Your decision to help can rescue dozens more in need...
