21 Ways to get involved with the A21 Campaign (21/21) The A21 Campaign’s 21:21 project

As I combined 2 of the 21 suggestions by the A21 campaign (1- write a letter and 14- write for their rights), I am adding in the A21 Campaign’s 21-21 project as my 21st way to get involved with the A21 Campaign.

Basically, The A21 Campaign now have a way for you to partner with them on a regular basis to bring freedom, justice, and hope for victims of human trafficking. Below are four easy ways you can join them in the fight for freedom {taken from 21-21 site}.

$21 a month can buy you a few cups of coffee or maybe a night at the movie theater. But $21 a month can provide the following items to someone who has been a victim of human slavery and sex trafficking:
               A shelter home once rescued by authorities
               A welcome care package
               A bed
               New pajamas
               Mini-makeover (haircut and facial cleansing, if desired)
               All necessary toiletries and feminine products
               Well-balanced and nutritious meals
               Full medical examination (blood test, pregnancy tests, and gynecology examination)
               A social worker assigned to each case

How can so little, pay for so much? Together we can pull resources and ensure that everyone has the right to live a safe, healthy, and free life.

We know there are many ways to invest your money.  But we believe by investing in a life, you’re return of investment is shown by providing justice and freedom to women who have been trapped in slavery. Check out some ways your investment brings justice to the oppressed.
In addition to providing basic home care, shelter, and assistance, as our HEALING partners, our JUSTICE partners will also provide:
               Security and protection
               Legal representation in court cases
               Obtain VOT (victim of trafficking) certificate from public prosecutor
               File grievances and request documentation for victim’s repatriation (if applicable)

If a court case is filed, all legal fees, paperwork fees, and legal documentation will be covered

How can provisions be made to restore a future? How can dreams be returned? Though we can’t undo the past, we can provide a new future for girls who want to rebuild their lives. With your $21 a day donation, you can help women envision a new FUTURE by providing skills and education to help them prepare for life on their own.
With your generous monthly donation, you will ensure women have the basic needs met in the HEALING partnership, the legal representation, attention, and protection of our JUSTICE partnership, in addition to what our FUTURE partnership includes:
               Language education in both English and national language of shelter country
               12-week Empower program (trauma rehabilitation program)
               12-week Shine program (personal development program)
               12-week Life Skills program (providing simple and practical tools to reintegrate back into society)
               Computer skills
               Opportunity to transfer to an A21 transition program
               Designed to reintegrate women into society and start rebuilding their lives
               Accommodation and living expenses assistance
               Language training
               Vocational/educational training
               Assistance in securing employment
               Medical and psychological support

4.   Give hope:

We know that everyone has a different story and our circumstances in life may vary. But the good news is that everyone can make a difference! With our HOPE option of monthly or one-time donations, you are able to choose any amount of financial donation to support all costs and needs for the girls at the shelter.
You and your donation are valuable in the fight for freedom. Know that your contribution goes to all areas of need: from everyday care (housing, food, shelter) to larger financial obligations (necessary medical tests, legal feels, court cases).

To commit to a monthly contribution of any amount or to make a one-time donation, fill out the donation section on any of these pages to get started!

Commit yourself to making a real difference to those who are being bought and sold against their will every day!

“Charity is a supreme virtue, and the great channel through which the mercy of God is passed on to mankind. It is the virtue that unites men and inspires their noblest efforts… There is a natural law, a Divine law, that obliges you and me to relieve the suffering, the distressed and the destitute.” {Conrad Hilton}
