ABOUT HUMAN TRAFFICKING: There are more slaves in the world today than at any other point in human history. Selling women and children into sex slavery is a big part of this ongoing problem. This illegal trade of human beings is a multi-billion dollar business and is identified as the fastest growing organized crime in the world. Children as young as 4 years old are trapped in prostitution slavery, tortured, raped, and sodomized. This is a world-wide crisis, a growing global problem of epidemic proportions. BUT WE HAVE THE POWER TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. We can use our God ordained gift’s (dance) and rescue innocent children from the horrors of Human Trafficking. “Evil prevails when good people do nothing.”

How To Purchase Chaperone Daily Lunch
