the process of Renewal, Restoration and Growth.
At ReGeneration International, we do what we do because we have a passion to see hearts restored, minds renewed, and lives transformed. Our desire is to help people to come out of the dark corners of the world of being sex trafficked, to finding a life of healing, comfort, love, peace and a newfound joy.
Since 2012, we have been directly involved in working with women and children who have suffered abuse, either directly or indirectly as a result of sex trafficking. There are 27 million men, women, and children that are enslaved on the earth, while over 60% of these are located in Asia. There is more slavery going on right now than there ever has been in the history of the world. This tragic modern day slavery is called Sex Trafficking.
We have decided to begin our focus in the Philippines. This beautiful country is a very popular tourist destination for Westerners to come and engage in the sex industry. Men pay money to pimps that own the men, women and children in exchange for sexual services. The Philippines is also one of the top global sources of child pornography. There has only been a continual increase in demand for this online sexual exploitation of children, which has been known to target children as young as 2 months old.
Our strategy to combat this is to work in partnership with the Philippines government, churches, and other NGO's that are also on the forefront reaching out and helping women, men and children escape this horrific life.
We focus on prevention, outreach and protection.
We believe one way to prevent human sex trafficking and sexual abuse is through building awareness and education. We reach out to those most vulnerable to being trafficked. This includes street children, children in poverty, children not going to school and more. We host monthly events to educate and build awareness towards these groups of children in order to better prevent them from being susceptible to becoming victims of child sex trafficking.
We have teams in Angeles City, Olongapo City, and Manila that do regular outreach to the areas where women, men, and children are being sold for sex daily. Doing this helps build trust and allows us to reach those who are living every day in fear and desperation.
In order to protect survivors of human sex trafficking we support programs that provide survivors with a safe place to live, food to eat, receive medical treatment, discipleship, trauma counseling, education, job training, life skill training and so much more!
