Mission of A Breeze Of Hope Foundation
Breeze of Hope’s mission is to restore the lives of those who have suffered childhood sexual violence by providing them free, holistic support; to eradicate sexual violence through transdisciplinary prevention strategies; and to promote healthy, comprehensive childhood development.
The program will create a new interdisciplinary team at A Breeze of Hope’s center that will provide 70 girl victims of sexual violence with a safe and comfortable environment in which they can rebuild their lives and dreams and develop the skills they need to live successful, economically independent lives.
