At our March 4th business meeting, our guest speaker was Cathy Tollefson, Executive Director of Global Family Canada. The topic of her presentation was ‘The Daughter Project’ ( Cathy informed us that every day young Canadian girls are being lured, sold, bought and raped. This is one of the most unreported crimes. A trafficker will make $300,000.00 per year per girl and the average age is 12 to 14. They will be opening the first Canadian Shelter (Daughter Project Girls Home) for girls Ages 11 to 17 who have been identified as sexually exploited and this shelter will be in Peterborough.

The Daughter project acknowledged our support and donation via their e-newsletter
