Helping a human traffic victim become a survivor

0% Completado


I am raising funds to help others become volunteers, and to help the victims.

Armor of God is raising funds to assist victims of human trafficking and to teach them to become survivors with skills.

ABOUT US

There are an estimated 27 million slaves in the world today. Armor of God is committed to liberating those enslaved and restoring those that have been abused. Already serving in the Americas, starting in Africa, Armor of God will keep expanding to reach even more children.

Armor of God is a grassroots, Christian based, non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing children from human trafficking and sexual exploitation. We help rescue the sexually exploited and enslaved, restore the abused, protect the vulnerable, empower the poor and are a voice for those that can’t speak up for themselves.
We help rescue all victims of trafficking.

We currently operate our various programs in Mexico, Central America, USA and South Africa.

Our efforts are making a huge difference, too. We’ve rescued and reunite children, helped keep hundreds more from entering the sex-trade through our various prevention programs, ensured justice for those that have been wronged and have raised awareness to untold numbers. And, we’ll continue to expand to help reach even more children in the days ahead!

Armor of God realizes that human trafficking is a big problem globally with up to 27 million men, women and children enslaved in its deadly grip today. With that said, we’re determined to respond to God’s call to set captives free worldwide. As long as children are being sold into the sex-trade, and poverty that drives at-risk children into prostitution exists, Armor of God will be fully committed to fighting for their freedom, restoration and offering them a chance to dream agai


OUR MISSION

Armor of God Foundation exists to Rescue, Restore, Protect, Empower and be a Voice for the Voiceless.

RESCUE THE SEXUALLY EXPLOITED AND ENSLAVED

Armor of God rescues children and adults from red light districts, brothels and sexually abusive situations. Armor of God also rescues children and adults from now trafficking hot spots across the world.

Armor of God Rescue is committed to rescuing children from the sex trade and giving them the opportunity to fulfil their destinies. Our Rescue Agents risk their lives searching for under aged children in brothels, red light districts and sexually abusive situations.

Our Rescue Agents are committed to helping children escape, but many children feel trapped even if they are not physically locked up.

Traffickers plant fear into the hearts and minds of the children. They are too terrified to escape, even if the opportunity presented itself.

Poverty and lack of education entice parents to sell their children. Many children feel immense pressure from their families to continue earning money, despite their unbearable circumstances.

THE RESCUE

Our Rescue Agents visit red lights areas undercover and identify under aged children and adult victims.

Once identified, they will either:

Build trust with the children and offer the safest escape route possible.

Partner with anti-trafficking police to gain intelligence and help facilitate a raid.

The brothel managers, pimps, traffickers are often arrested and the premises shut down, meaning no more abuse can take place there.

Both methods of rescue are vital in fulfilling our vision to see child slavery ended in our lifetimes.


The same methods get used to rescue adults in sex trafficking and human trafficking.

We also attend rescue mission where tip offs have been received by police.

As of December 2014, 100% of rescued children will then find love and restoration in our Armor of GOd Rescue Homes. Depending on circumstance, the children will either return to their families, or are placed in our aftercare home

RESTORE THE ABUSED

Armor of God provides rescued children the intensive care and love they need to recover from the traumatic effects of sexual abuse and sexual exploitation. We provide them medical help, counseling, schooling, vocational training and all daily needs required to be integrated back into society successfully. In addition, we provide a safe protective place for them to live, grow and experience the unconditional love of God – a place where they can feel valued and esteemed; a place where they can be kids again.

Armor of God provides rescued adults the intensive care and love they need to recover from the traumatic effects of sexual abuse and sexual exploitation. We provide them medical help, counseling, vocational training and all daily needs required to be integrated back into society successfully. In addition, we provide a safe protective place for them to live, grow and experience the unconditional love of God – a place where they can feel valued and esteemed. We provide them with a sense of belonging.

Rescuing a child is just the first step toward recovery. The journey that follows requires much healing and restoration – rebuilding a life emotionally, mentally, spiritually and physically.

There are literally millions of children enslaved in the sex-trade or who have been sexually exploited in our world today. And each child has a story that reveals the damaging effects of sexual abuse. Some children have been fortunate enough to be rescued with only a relatively short time in the industry, while others have been trapped for many years.
Regardless of the amount of time spent in a brothel or in an abusive situation, these children are broken and wounded and need to experience the healing touch of God and His unconditional love.

Armor of God Rescue has a mandate from God to see these children healed and restored from their past abuse.

The Bible says, “The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me, for the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to comfort the broken-hearted and to proclaim that captives will be released and prisoners will be freed. He has sent me to tell those who mourn that the time of the Lord’s favor has come, and with it, the day of God’s anger against their enemies. To all who mourn in Israel, he will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair” (Isaiah 61:1-3a NLT).

God has uniquely equipped and qualified Armor of God Rescue to help bring healing and wholeness to these children, and because of this, they can smile again. They have a chance to dream and fulfill their God-given destinies.

Through our aftercare programs, children are given tender medical attention and helped with any diseases they may have contracted while in slavery. In addition, they receive any other medical care needed along their journey to recovery.

We also provide Godly counsel from our trained counselors. Our amazing staff help kids navigate the difficult waters of their past with the Truth of God’s Word and tangibly express the love of God to them on a daily basis.
A proper education and vocational training are key components for successful reintegration back into society.
Not only are these children and young adults offered medical care and counseling, they are brought to a “rescue home” where they can live peacefully, eat nutritious meals, get a valuable education and play interactive games with other children. In addition, when they reach a certain age, they can learn a skilled trade like sewing, jewelry making, hairstyling, waitressing or cooking.

A proper education and vocational training are key components for successful reintegration back into society. These tools will help equip these young adults to earn a good living and become self-sufficient, keeping them safe from a life of prostitution.

Like all of us, children need unconditional love. At Armor of God Rescue we go out of our way to make every child feel loved, valued and esteemed. We also give them the opportunity to go to church if they so choose. Many of them see God’s faithfulness through answered prayer and hear of His amazing power through personal testimonies, which in turn, compels a large number of them to enter a personal relationship with Jesus Christ!

Because of all our faithful supporters, we’re able to bring freedom, hope and restoration to hundreds of children once enslaved in the sex-trade industry.

PROTECT THE VULNERABLE

Armor of God offers programs that help at-risk children and families reduce their children’s chances of being sold, lured or trafficked into the sex-trade.

Many children are forced into sexual slavery simply because they are poor and have little or no education. Armor of God is addressing these root problems head on.

A large percentage of children forced into human trafficking come from poverty-stricken communities where educational opportunities are scarce or where illegal drugs are rampant. In most cases, at-risk families can’t afford to send their children to school. As a result, their children enter the work force with little or no qualifications for a decent paying job. This makes them extremely vulnerable to sex traffickers that lure, bribe and falsely promise good jobs to them. Instead, these evil criminals enslave children into forced prostitution.

Unfortunately, there are even cases where children’s parents are desperate enough financially to push their own kids into a life of prostitution.

God wants His people to actively help those caught in poverty and give them a hand up in life – offering them a positive alternative to their seemingly hopeless situation.

The Bible says, “Do justice to the weak (poor) and fatherless; maintain the rights of the afflicted and needy. Deliver the poor and needy; rescue them out of the hand of the wicked” (Psalm 82:3-4 AMP). This means we have a responsibility to help protect vulnerable people, including at-risk children and families from evil human traffickers.

Deliver the poor and needy; rescue them out of the hand of the wicked” (Psalm 82:4 AMP).

Armor of God has stepped up to the challenge by offering prevention programs to at-risk children and families. We identify areas in the world that have extreme poverty and where children are being forced into the sex-trade, we take into consideration that countries like the USA has their own poverty areas that needs addressing. Then we offer financial assistance to families that need help enrolling their child or children in school. We pay for a child’s tuition, books, school supplies and uniform. If a family’s situation is severe enough, we may even provide meal assistance, as well. Each family’s needs are different, and therefore, require individual assessment. This is done by a Armor of God Rescue social worker.

Sometimes, there are no schools in a specific area where a family lives. In these cases, Armor of God Rescue will help pay for a child to relocate to one of our prevention homes, where they will be given a proper education, a safe place to live, food, medical care and all their daily needs.

There are also instances when children, especially in slum villages, fall behind in school because their parents can’t afford to send them consistently. This may even cause them to drop out altogether – increasing their chances of being trafficked. Armor of God Rescue established an after-school learning program to combat this issue. Our centers help children and young adults catch up on their schooling, so they can graduate successfully – giving them an opportunity to reach their dreams!

EMPOWER THE LESS FORTUNATE

Armor of God believes in empowering the less fortunate and giving them a hand up in life, not a handout. Our philosophy and goal is to help them become self-sustaining through one of our many assistance programs. Simply put, we don’t want to create a welfare system where children and families become dependent on our organization, but rather have a chance to become profitable through hard work and common sense.

Some people are so poor, they’re even willing to sell their own children into the sex-trade to survive. Armor of God isn’t okay with that. We’re offering them a much better alternative…

According to the United Nation Millennium Report of 2012, “There were 456 million workers in the world living below the $1.25 a day poverty line in 2011. This means there are millions of poor people around the globe desperate to find a way to support their families financially, especially in rural areas. So desperate in fact, some are willing to sell illegal drugs or even their own children into the sex industry.

The Bible teaches us to be kind to the poor and offer them help in time of need. “Those who oppress the poor insult their Maker, but helping the poor honors him” (Proverbs 14:31 NLT).

We help the poor become independent through our self-sustaining projects.

Armor of God is compelled by God to help empower the poor and destitute, especially in rural areas where extreme poverty exists. We believe in offering them a hand up, not a handout. In other words, our goal is to teach them to become self-supportive over time through our many self-sustaining projects. These programs help families earn a good, stable income and offer them much better options other than illegal drugs or sex trafficking.

In short, Armor of God believes in providing hope and stability to the poor and vulnerable worldwide.

Armor of God Rescue staff will when possible start to travel extensively to churches, conferences and seminars raising awareness about sex trafficking, at-risk children and families and our role in combating and stopping modern day slavery in our generation.

Our goal is simple: get in front of as many influencers as possible, so they, in turn, can be advocates for those enslaved, poor and destitute

BE A VOICE FOR THE VOICELESS

Have you ever had the experience of talking to someone about an important issue and realized the person you were speaking with didn’t hear a word you said? It can be quite frustrating, can’t it? Now imagine a situation that’s many times worse.


For example, you were being sexually exploited and your cries for help fell on deaf ears. Or you were in such poverty that you couldn’t feed your own children and had to sit and watch them slowly die of starvation. It would be difficult to have hope that things could change for the better. Sadly, this is happening all over the world.

Will you stand up and fight for justice and do the right thing, even if it’s inconvenient or uncomfortable?
God wants His people to be a voice for those that can’t speak up for themselves; He wants us to be an advocate on their behalf – one that will stand up and fight for justice and do the right thing, even if it’s inconvenient or uncomfortable.

The Bible says, “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those being crushed. Yes, speak up for the poor and helpless, and see that they get justice” (Proverbs 31:8-9 NLT).

Armor of God is committed to being that voice – a voice for the voiceless, a voice for the poor, the sexually enslaved and the vulnerable. We’re committed to bringing justice to their cause through our many advocacy and awareness events.

So much of the world doesn’t even know the horrendous conditions and environments these children and families live in.

If Armor of God doesn’t share their stories with people who actually have the ability to make a difference, little will ever be accomplished.

Armor of God is committed to being a voice for the sexually exploited, vulnerable and poor who, in most cases, can’t speak up for themselves. We believe everyone has a right to be heard, especially those crying out for justice. Many times they are overlooked or tossed aside by society, but we are determined to be their voice – motivating and inspiring influencers to get involved and make a difference in the lives of the voiceless

OUR HISTORY

What began as a group of friends with a God-sized dream and a passion for setting others free has now grown into a worldwide, Christian non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing and restoring children enslaved in the sex-trade.

Armor of God foundation story began with the founding family sitting down with friends pondering on different issues. They were all affected by Human, sex and child trafficking, that personally touched their lives. It got all deep and meaningful, it was a real God moment and the first time we all thought we could make a difference. God planted the seeds and the rest fell into place.

The family was personal survivors from trafficking and felt that God will give them the strength to deal with their own heart ache, by helping others.

We all decided to start a rescue and safe haven for victims, where God can lead the way on how to help them. God then decided to put child victims on the door of the foundation.

We are aiming to work on virtually every continent with one main purpose – to see sex-slavery end in our lifetime.

Through the 5 years various young adults and adults has been saved, now we are working with children and seeing them being saved and the joy to see them being children again.

Our eyes has been opened to how our home countries are effected by trafficking and their denial in dealing with the problem.

And as long as sex-trafficking and child sexual exploitation exist in our world, we will continue to fight and be advocates on behalf of the enslaved and vulnerable.

This is our story – ordinary people with God-sized hearts that are passionate about setting others free.

You can be part of our story, too. To learn more about how you can get involved, contact directly. Or, if you’d like to just have a look around, feel free to browse our website.
