HOW YOU ARE OFFERING
HOPE IN PAINFUL TIMES
In Myanmar, Daw San’s husband died from COVID-19. Grief overwhelmed her, and she had no idea how she could care for her two children without his income. Fearing COVID-19 exposure, her family would not come near to help her. The situation was desperate — the kind of desperation that often leads young moms to fall for the tricks of traffickers.
THE SUPPORT YOU MAKE POSSIBLE
Thankfully, Daw San’s She Is Safe women’s group — called a Transformation Group (TG) — supported her. These groups, made possible through your support, provide women and girls at risk of slavery with literacy, income generation, loans and leadership skills as well as a sense of community to equip them to contribute to a new future.
YOUR GENEROSITY AT WORK
Daw San’s group cleaned, cooked, comforted, encouraged and prayed. As they were caring for her, they shared an idea for Daw San to set up a small shop just outside of her home selling essential household items. This meant that she could care for her children while earning an income. Now Daw San and her children are safe and receive the care they need thanks to the support and ingenuity of her TG.
YOU ARE INSPIRING COMPASSION IN INDIA
In India, recent heavy rains have caused devastating floods. The women in She Is Safe’s Transformation Groups (TGs) had three feet of water infested with leeches and snakes in their community for four days.
TG member Nasira, inspired by the help she has received from you and other faithful ministry friends, felt compelled to help those in her community. Since her house was on higher ground, she offered food and shelter in her home to a few families.
THE HELP YOU OFFER CREATES A RIPPLE EFFECT
Transformation does not stop with the women and girls in She Is Safe’s programs. Each changed life helps many more lives, transforming communities.
You are helping women and girls learn the importance of multiplying the benefits they receive. Thank you!
YOUR GIFT OF HOPE TRANSFORMS LIVES
Hopeless, helpless and ashamed . . . these are the words women and girls use to describe themselves when they come to their first She Is Safe Transformation Group meeting. Many live under constant degradation and abuse. Many are destined to be trafficked into a brothel or child marriage. But what a joy it is to see a life change when it is nurtured with love, safety and a new hope.
You are crucial to the transformation of women and girls as they experience their God-given value. Because of you, they can be free from abuse and slavery and from the pain of believing they are worthless and unloved. With the help you provide, these women and girls become examples and true leaders. They create a future they could have never imagined or dared to hope for.
Thank you for daring to join them.
With joy of transformations,
Michele M. Rickett
Founder & CEO
THE STRENGTH AND CONFIDENCE YOU MAKE POSSIBLE
After Faiza attended her first meeting of She Is Safe’s newly launched Transformation Group (TG) program in the Middle East, her husband beat her for going. “I will continue to go, even if the beatings continue,” she said. And she has done just that. After just one experience of a TG, she knows the community of women and what she is learning are worth suffering for.
HOPE AND A FUTURE — THANKS TO YOU!
Women in these groups offer each other emotional support as they develop their literacy and leadership skills. The program also provides education about women’s health and hygiene, and some members are already beginning to save money for their group savings and lending pool.
Thank you for the hope you make possible and the dreams you inspire in the Middle East and around the world!
In the Middle East, Transformation Groups you make possible (including a group for teenage girls) give vulnerable women and girls a chance for a transformed life. Thank you!
“It was like I was dead and came back to life. It’s good to know there are still good people in the world.” — Middle East TG participant

YOU CAN HELP HER REACH IT!
Women and girls where She Is Safe works face dire circumstances — cultures where they are seen as a commodity, are used and abused and lack the skills to sustain their lives. They don’t know that a life of freedom and dignity is available to them. Yet, with your help, they can claim a whole new life as their own. Your support means women and girls in the hardest places can be transformed in every way. The life-changing programs you help make possible can grow to reach even more women and girls in desperate need of support, skills and the truth of their value. Please give today to help make this work possible.
