A Last Day of Great Hope
On our final day of the trip, we visited one of CMA’s most amazing ministries, the Girls’ Rescue Center. We were beyond impressed as its a safe haven for such courageous girls, while also being fully sustainable with crops, livestock, and more. Here’s more information from CMA’s website:
Built in 2008 in partnership with Network Beyond, CMA’s Olooloitikoshi Girls’ Rescue Center (GRC) serves as a safe-haven for nearly 40 young girls who have faced unthinkable abuse and neglect. Having narrowly escaped horrendous practices such as female genital mutilation (FGM) ceremonies, being promised as a pre-teen to a 60-year-old man in marriage, and sexual advances by family members, these girls are now part of an uplifting and supportive community where they are safe.
At the center, they are fed nutritious food, clothed well, and have a new home with a community of support.The girls are shown the love of Christ and are given the attention that they could not get at home. They all work together to grow food and raise livestock for their meals, and they receive an education that would otherwise have been denied to them in their culture. To these girls, the rescue center is much more than just ‘home’ – it is a fresh start, and hope for a better future.
