Heartbeat – Compassion Ministry
This project will focus on prevention of human trafficking in vulnerable countries in GP-Asia region through awareness raising at the community level challenging and mobilizing the Wesleyan churches to take the lead in this preventive effort. Workshops will be done to equip pastors, lay leaders, women and youth with knowledge and skills so that they are able to present clearly the facts and realities of human trafficking to vulnerable families in their villages, so that these families are able and empowered to say “No” to would be predators.
The Priceless cubes and dresses made by donors have been effective as tools in opening up conversations about human trafficking as well as sharing the gospel if given an opportunity to do so among vulnerable groups.
Potential trainers from some strategic districts are being coached and mentored while they prepare and facilitate some of the training class sessions themselves. These are the trainers who will continue on training other members of the church and their community in speaking about awareness on human trafficking.
