Rescue a child. Transform a family. Do it again tomorrow.
Many Dominicans live on less than $2 per day. With that little money, many people have to go without meals, new clothes, and education. These vulnerabilities leave people desperate for work that will provide more money, but it’s hard to secure a job without education. That’s where human trafficking comes in. As is true with any tourist destination, there’s a demand for commercial sex. Whether natives are lured into the industry by promises of a better life or choose to do it themselves because they have no other choices, sexual exploitation is often one of the only options people see to provide for themselves in the Dominican. At Crossover Cups Mission, we know each person has inherent worth because they were created in the image of God. We want to come alongside children in the Dominican to disciple them, provide for them, give them an education, serve them, and empower them to choose a vocation that they desire for their lives. We want to give them all the resources they need to build a life they dream of and prevent them from having to choose sexual exploitation from the lack of other choices. When you partner with us, you’re giving a child their humanity back. You’re empowering them to choose what they want to do with their life. You’re giving them food and education, but you’re also giving them the ability to dream and work towards creating a better world.
