Project Description

Change the lives of young beggar girls. Improve the quality of life for people who live in great poverty. Bring hope to those who have none.

Many girls in this city often beg to support themselves and their families. Beyond begging, many of the girls may choose prostitution as another option for making a living. Many of these are raised by beggars to be beggars. Their families still live in slums and depend on the income these girls can generate from begging.

The Light Of Hope shelter provides a refuge for beggar girls. They can come by the shelter daily for a hot meal, clean clothes, to learn a skill and to learn about Jesus.
