“Every time you spend money, you're casting a vote for the kind of world you want.”
Of the 10 partnerships Tenth Church has in Cambodia, a few are specifically focused on combatting human trafficking. A big part of the rehabilitation process is empowering survivors with stable, rewarding, and valuable work in an effort to help them stay free from exploitative lifestyles and have a meaningful life.
More than just supporting our partners in creating jobs, Tenth has helped our partners create healing spaces where groups of women find community while healing, being trained in business and practical skills, and creating beautiful products together.
The Tenth Church Fair Trade Christmas Sale is one way we can support these efforts from Canada. For those of you that purchased items at our Fair Trade Christmas sale, thank you for voting with your money!
Precious Women, Daughters, and Extreme Love Ministries all provide vocational training for women who have left or desire to leave lives of sexual exploitation and abuse. Leaving these situations is not easy as they are almost always pressured to provide money for the family and to pay for debts they have incurred.
Fair Trade Christmas celebrates stories of change and freedom
Tenth’s partner organizations work day in and day out to ensure that each person receives care, love, and learns about the deep worth and value bestowed upon each person by God.
Your ongoing prayer and continued support of our Cambodia vision is deeply valued not just at Christmas, but the whole year-round.
Thank you for voting for change!
