Giving Tuesday

This Giving Tuesday, please help rescue young girls who are victims of sex trafficking in Guatemala.

Welcome to the Canadian Bible Society’s Giving Tuesday page! On November 27, 2018, CBS will raise $10,000 to support the Guatemalan Bible Society’s “Free to Live” project to help rescue young girls who are victims of sex trafficking.

The Situation in Guatemala

Guatemala is number 1 in human trafficking in Central America  33 Children and women are caught by trafficking networks daily

The “Free to Live” project in Guatemala is carried out in state-run and private orphanages that includes 700 girls per year ranging from 7 to 18 years old. These girls are homeless, orphaned, or have been victims of sexual and physical abuse as well as modern slavery.

Project Implementation

The “ Free to Live” project, through dialogue and team work, provides weekly support that aims to bring inner healing through group sessions, fostering the development of favorable emotional conditions that will enable them to face and handle emotions and thoughts that are related to trauma, and that can lead them to create a life plan that will halt a cycle of violence they have been thrust into.

In three months, we have helped to restore 222 girls and adolescents through the Word of God. All of them have received a Bible and weekly Bible workshops in Guatemala City and Quetzaltenango.

Project Impact

The 2019 goal of the “Free to Live” project is that…

  • 600 teenage girls who have been victims of sex trafficking will hear the Good News and start a process of healing and restoration in their life.
  • 100 preteen girls who have been victims of sex trafficking will hear about the Bible and begin a journey of healing in their life.
  • 1,410 Scriptures will be distributed to these victims of sex trafficking.

How you can support

Your support today will help the Guatemalan Bible Society continue the “Free to Live” project. For $57, you will be able to provide life-changing training and Bible-based materials to 175 teenage and pre-teen girls who are victims of sex trafficking.

This Giving Tuesday helps the Canadian Bible Society raise $10,000 to support the Guatemalan Bible Society’s “Free to Live” project to help rescue young girls who are victims of sex trafficking.
