Woman & Children - before shot


Founder Wendy Swanson wins grant!

In Cambodia Wendy saw the shocking reality of women and girls being exploited through sex trafficking - a reality far worse than she ever imagined. Those lucky enough to be rescued didn’t have the skills to support themselves, yet without them they were at risk of being exploited again. She wanted to give these girls a second chance at life. The Marigold Ideas for Good grant will provide vocational scholarships to rescued girls to help end this abusive cycle and empower them to start a new life free from exploitation.
