February Monthly Meeting

February 24, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Monthly Meeting

Meetings are held on the 4th Monday of the month. Networking starts at 6:00 pm and the dinner meeting starts at 6:30 pm. Reservations required. Below is the information for our Speaker, Dan at Worthwhile Wear.
Worthwhile Wear exists to rescue and restore girls from forced prostitution, and more importantly help prevent girls from ever entering it. We target highly trafficked areas both internationally and domestically, and offer women the opportunity to overcome two primary factors which are at the root of sex trafficking; poverty and lack of education.

This solution is offered through vocational training centers which teach women how to make wears, such as jewelry, handbags, and clothing, which are sold to provide them employment. Additionally, the women are offered free education, a safe place to stay, and restorative programs geared toward encouraging personal growth and reestablishing self-worth.

Worthwhile Wear is excited to introduce their new program; “The Well.

Providing help to the exploited women both Internationally and Domestically has always been our priority, and now with “The Well” program we will begin providing long-term aftercare and housing to women in the U.S. through partnerships with other local agencies. If you are interested in partnering with us for this U.S. based response, we would love to hear from you. Our goal is to have services available and a team in place to reach the local need by the Summer of 2014.
