Girls leave their homes because of families difficulties, death of a parent, promises of opportunities for work, and the lure of lights for the big city. Yet when they arrive in Kampala, the capital city of Uganda, they quickly realize it is not as they had hoped. They have no resources and no where to turn, so they end up on the streets vulnerable to abuse, domestic servitude, prostitution or trafficking to another country. Good Samaritan Sisters and their team go out on the streets nightly to find these girls and rescue them. They offer them a home, medical care, counseling, spiritual guidance, and the opportunity to learn a skill or two that they can use to earn income. When possible, they help to settle the girls back home in a way that enables them to help the family. In a nut shell, they restore the girls dignity and renew their hope!
