Providing a Home and Hope for At-Risk Girls in Senegal (VIDEO)

By Tom Mills, Apr 25, 2023

When Senegalese pastor Mamadou and his wife, Marie, first learned of a number of girls in neighboring communities and outlying villages who were at risk of being trafficked, they knew their church needed to help. They decided to open their own home to these girls and provide them with a safe haven. Families in impoverished communities often send their young girls out to work or give them away to someone else for money, putting them at risk of being trafficked.

Initially taking in a handful of girls, their ministry has grown to now caring for 36 girls, and they recently moved into a new building. The girls not only receive food, shelter, and an education but also learn about the love of Jesus through the involvement of the local church. The goal is to help them grow and give them skills to support themselves and their families. Many of the girls have come to Christ, and the ministry prays that many more will come to know Him.

The involvement of the local church and the support of sponsors in the U.S. are essential in making this ministry possible. Those interested in supporting the ministry can reach out to learn more.
