Read to Rescue
Through sponsored reading, you can rescue girls from slavery and abuse in India and Nepal.
When a concerned 11-year-old learned that girls could be enslaved and sold, she prayed a heartbroken prayer. She asked God to give her an idea of what she could do to help. Fortunately, that prayer was answered: kids as sponsored readers.
Children now have a way to help Free for Life rescue girls by doing one simple thing — reading books. Each child asks friends and family to sponsor them at $5 for each book they read in a month. Since it costs about $1 a day for a girl to experience freedom and new life, 6 books can mean an entire month of rescue, prevention or restoration.
