Mile High Magazine 06/27/2021 Free the Girls

Guest: Courtney Skiera-Vaughn Executive Director, Ph.D Free the Girls provides services for women who are survivors of sex trafficking in developing countries.  They are currently in Africa and Central America.  In Africa, the girls are young and might be orphans or could have a good family situation and someone exploits them.  In Costa Rica, sex tourism is a big thing and a demand for young girls.  Across all areas, the girls come poverty.  One if the biggest needs is reintegration.  Free the Girls is the what is next after a girl is saved.  They provide economic empowerment; they help the girls set up micro enterprises.  They collect new and gently used bras from all over the world and that is what these girls sell.  In El Salvador they only need to sell 3 bras to earn a living wage.  If you have any bra’s you would like to donate just visit their website for ways to donate.               http://freethegirls.org
