Join us for a night of fine dining and entertainment…
as we break ground for The House That Love Built which will become part of the legacy of all who participate in this event.
This Gala was created as a means to raise financial support and awareness for The Agapao Movement’s fight against human trafficking. Specifically, to construct and furnish a much-needed expansion on our existing housing initiative, Grace Children’s Home, in Andhra Pradesh, India.
Since opening in July 2015 Grace Children’s Home has consistently housed and cared for 10-15 more children than the building is designed to house. The funds raised through this Gala will be funneled directly to cover the new construction work and allow for the care and safety for more children living at risk of being abducted into human trafficking.
Our Work is Critical!
We provide a home, food, clothing, education and access to medical care for children living at Grace Children’s Home – to children who otherwise were living on the streets with no family to care for them and are actively at-risk of abduction into human trafficking.
A recent headline in a national Indian newspaper says this about the area of India in which we work, “Andhra Pradesh is one of the largest suppliers of women and children for commercial sexual exploitation” (Murali, S. “The Ugly Face of Human Trafficking.” The Hindu, 28 Feb 2016.).
