Genesis House: Call for Volunteers

Genesis House is a shelter for women, established by Freedom Foundation, to provide decent accommodation and the chance for rehabilitation and reformation to displaced, homeless women including former commercial sex workers. The initiative is designed to proffer an effective and lasting solution to the alarming and growing trend of prostitution among young females in Nigeria, especially in Lagos state. Genesis House recently became a safety net to Nigerian deportees from Italy.

Despite the effort of the NAPTIP Agency, various international bodies and NGO's to create awareness of the risk and exposures faced by repartees' as well as provide support to them, it has become obvious that the fight against this societal degradation is still a running battle which we at Freedom Foundation will continue to fight.

Would you like to get involved at Genesis House? Do you know a young woman who is in trouble? Are you interested in supporting Genesis House with either cash or in-kind contributions?
