Come and meet Rosette and her family :)

In Childhood Rescue programs across the world, we meet unbelievable, exceptional young people who are determined to make a way to build their rightful future.

Rosette is a standout! And we count it a privilege to play a small part in her story.

Rosette has worked her way into workshops generally set aside for the 'older' women. If there's an opportunity to learn and grow, she's going for it.

Now sometimes you can think, 'Does my money really help or is it going down a rabbit hole?'

YES! Your gift really helps and in Rosette's case, we're okay with this rabbit hole.

What can I do?

Here's three ways for you to go a little deeper - chat, act or share!
