EMPOWER THE POOR
Some people are so poor, they’re even willing to sell their own children into the sex-trade to survive. Armor of God isn’t okay with that. We’re offering them a much better alternative…
According to the United Nation Millennium Report of 2012, “There were 456 million workers in the world living below the $1.25 a day poverty line in 2011. This means there are millions of poor people around the globe desperate to find a way to support their families financially, especially in rural areas. So desperate in fact, some are willing to sell illegal drugs or even their own children into the sex industry.
The Bible teaches us to be kind to the poor and offer them help in time of need. “Those who oppress the poor insult their Maker, but helping the poor honors him” (Proverbs 14:31 NLT).
We help the poor become independent through our self-sustaining projects.
Armor of God is compelled by God to help empower the poor and destitute, especially in rural areas where extreme poverty exists. We believe in offering them a hand up, not a handout. In other words, our goal is to teach them to become self-supportive over time through our many self-sustaining projects. These programs help families earn a good, stable income and offer them much better options other than illegal drugs or sex trafficking.
In short, Armor of God believes in providing hope and stability to the poor and vulnerable worldwide.
Armor of God Rescue staff will when possible start to travel extensively to churches, conferences and seminars raising awareness about sex trafficking, at-risk children and families and our role in combating and stopping modern day slavery in our generation.
Our goal is simple: get in front of as many influencers as possible, so they, in turn, can be advocates for those enslaved, poor and destitute
