Justice Initiatives

Justice Initiatives prevents trafficking through a nine month holistic training program for vulnerable women.  Poverty is a major push factor for trafficking.  In 2011 ReachGlobal began partnering with nationals in West Bengal, India to train and equip impoverished women with income generating skills.  The fourth group of women is now going through the nine month training program.  Most of the women in the training program are mothers in need of income to provide for basic needs of their children. The training program equips women with crucial skills for: income earning, life, basic health and raising self-esteem.  Every morning the women begin their day with a Bible lesson and prayer.   Praise God that lives are being transformed through the power of the gospel.
