Sex traffickers are targeting young girls in Central America -- please act.
Guatemala is a hotbed of human trafficking, and impoverished young girls growing up there are prime targets for the most depraved and dangerous traffickers in the world. Sign PetitionSign Petition
In a country where murder rates are so high that 40 children are orphaned every day, the youngest and most vulnerable girls need special protection from the gangs and traffickers that seek to exploit their bodies for profit.
Covenant House is on the front lines of this fight, offering safe housing, counseling and services to girls in need of protection at our La Alianza shelter in Guatemala.
We could help up to 67 girls and their children every night -- but the work is incredibly dangerous, and lack of funding prevents us from reaching the girls who most need protection.
At a time when more and more children are being turned away at the US border, we must provide a safe place where these girls can turn for help in their own country.
Pledge to stand up to brutal traffickers and support vital shelter and services for young victims of sex trafficking in Guatemala and throughout Central America.
