Building Strong Foundations: The Pillars of Consider the Lily, Inc.
In the vibrant city of Manila, Philippines, life in the Alpas and Amaris homes is making a profound impact on the lives of vulnerable young girls who have faced unimaginable hardships. As an organization, Consider the Lily is committed to providing aftercare support for Filipina girls who have experienced exploitation, abuse, and trafficking. At the heart of our mission are three strong pillars: prevention, education, and prosecution. Let's delve into each pillar and explore how they contribute to the transformative work of our organization.
Prevention: Safeguarding Innocence
Consider the Lily understands the importance of safeguarding children and partners in preventing exploitation and abuse before they can ever occur. By focusing on prevention, CtL aims to create a protective shield around children, ensuring their safety and well-being. Through community outreach programs, educational initiatives, and awareness campaigns, we endeavor to empower families and communities with the knowledge and resources needed to identify and combat child exploitation. By addressing the root causes, we strive to break the cycle of abuse and foster a safer environment where children can thrive.
Education: Empowering Minds, Shaping Futures
Education holds incredible potential to empower survivors and shape their futures. Consider the Lily places great emphasis on providing high-quality education to the girls in their care. We firmly believe that education equips survivors with the essential skills, knowledge, and self-assurance required to lead independent and successful lives. From primary education to advanced degrees, CtL wholeheartedly supports the educational journey of each girl, ensuring they have the tools they need to achieve their dreams and break free from the chains of their past.
Prosecution: Seeking Justice for Healing
Consider the Lily firmly believes that seeking justice is an integral part of the healing process. The organization stands alongside survivors, offering unwavering support as they pursue legal action against those who have caused them harm. By working closely with legal authorities, providing compassionate legal counsel, and offering emotional assistance, we stand as a steadfast ally for these courageous young girls as they face their perpetrators in court. Through prosecution, CtL seeks not only justice but also closure and a profound sense of empowerment for survivors, helping them reclaim their lives and rewrite their stories. As an organization, we want to shine as a beacon of hope, healing, and restoration for young girls who have endured unimaginable trauma. Holding focus on the pillars of prevention, education, and prosecution—and working together with our supporters—we are making a lasting impact on the lives of survivors and their communities. With a heartfelt approach rooted in faith and a steadfast commitment to defending children and putting an end to sexual abuse, we aim to provide a nurturing haven where girls can heal, grow, and ultimately find freedom. As we reflect on the tireless efforts of the CtL Family, let us acknowledge and express gratitude for the part each person plays in creating a world where every child can thrive, free from exploitation and abuse. Together, we will continue to build a brighter and safer future for these deserving survivors.
