We’ve accomplished another milestone in the fight against modern day slavery. Thanks to our fellow abolitionists we have successfully raised $7,500 forProject: AK-47.
The children that Project: AK-47 rescues spend an average of seven years in the military as children. They work to provide them with needs like shelter, food, clothing, education and LOVE.
The money that YOU have helped raised is going towards one of the aftercare projects that Project: AK-47 has in Burma. Burma is home to over 75,000 child soldiers, which is the largest concentration of child soldiers in the world. Long-standing civil war, ethnic conflicts, and drug trafficking are subjecting children to adult wars. Meet some of the faces of the ones you’re helping:
It started as shocked outrage after having seen the Lifetime movie "Human Trafficking". Feelings of fear, anger, disgust, worry, and a whole host of other emotions prompted some uncomfortable research. Months of careful deliberation and a fierce desire to help the helpless planted the seed for awareness. The seed soon became a sprout that needed to be planted and grown.
Soon, a small group of passionate advocates came together to officially form Anti-Slavery Project, LLC. Together, we conduct documentary screenings and presentations and spread the word about human trafficking and sexual exploitation.
This is part of ASP's attempt to help increase awareness of the evil that lurks around every corner of our world. If you care about your family, your friends, the human race, then jump on board and help....
STOP THE SLAVERY!!
