Teenage Girls are at Severe Risk of Abuse
Honduras is the second poorest country in Central America, with 65% of the population living below the poverty line. One out of three girls in Honduras is the victim of sexual abuse by the time she reaches the age of 12. Sadly, many young girls live on the streets. The country’s lack of resources and personnel leaves the police and the government virtually helpless to protect these girls who are in need of a safe haven from poverty and abuse.
Casa de Ester Is More Than a Safe Home
Casa de Ester accommodates up to 30 teenage girls who have been victims of sexual abuse. Safe from abuse, and having their basic needs met, they can begin to dream about their future.
The girls living at Casa de Ester are provided with strong academic, spiritual and life skills programs to prepare them to successfully live independently one day. The girls are continuing their education with academic classes five days a week. In addition, there are opportunities for the girls to learn various vocational and life skills such as cooking, sewing, and gardening. Casa de Ester incorporates Biblical principles in all aspects of the program in an effort to impact the whole person, by meeting the physical and spiritual needs of each girl to restore her to a life of purpose.
