My sponsored child from Brazil mentioned that she is in the "Resgate Project". I looked this up online and it appears to be an organization that helps women who have been sexually exploited or working in slave-like conditions. Is this what she is talking about?

Hi Karen! Project Resgate or 'Project Rescue' is a separate organization, not associated with Compassion International. Luzia mentioned to you that she is in the 'Resgate Project' because the church that we partner with in her area, Primeira Igreja Batista em Governador Luiz Rocha, named the Child Development Center that your child attends, Projecto Resgate.

Although Luzia was not talking about this organization in her letter to you, I want to assure you that in our partnership with her local church, our program promotes a safe and healthy environment where she is known and loved by caring adults and offered security, love, and protection. Our staff members are trained in child protection, and, in turn, provide training to children in our program and their families. Local staff are also prepared with a plan of action should they become aware of abuse or exploitation with any of our children.
