Help Revive a Teen!!



Rise Above Defeat needs your help!

We are now expanding and looking to help those who are in need. Our next mission is to Help Revive a Teen. Rise Above Defeat will be providing assistance to teen girls who have been involved in human sex trafficking and who are now in need of intensive therapy, rehabilitation, and reintegration into society. We would like to provide a safe and healthy home environment for these teens to live while receiving intensive therapy and trauma care. Rise above defeat is a non-profit organization 501c3 tax deductible and we are turning to you for help. It takes a village to raise a child and the world to pull together to help revive one.

What is Child Sex Trafficking? Child sex trafficking is the exploitation of minors (defined as children under 18, though teens over 18 can be victims as well) for prostitution.

The average age of a victim is between 12-14 years old. An estimated 300,000 adolescents every year fall victim to sex trafficking.
