LITTLE ROSE WARM SHELTER

Protecting and empowering girls and young women since 1992

Our story

Past

The Little Rose Warm Shelter (LRWS) was founded by HCWA in 1992 with the intention of rehabilitating, caring for and protecting girls aged 12-18 who were at risk of or who had been victims of abuse. Through its history, the LRWS has received funding and support from both local and international organisations, associations and individuals. This involvement from sponsors has been, and continues to be crucial in the survival of the LRWS in providing shelter, rehabilitation and education to abuse survivors.

Present

The LRWS continues to protect and care for young girls by providing them with shelter, as well as physical and mental rehabilitation. The girls receive a range of services including health care, psychological therapy, recreational activities, education, vocational training, job placement, life skills training and gender education. In addition, there is a strong focus on family and community integration. This rounded approach to rehabilitation empowers the girls, while creating awareness within the communities on how to prevent the abuse of children and care for victims of it. A fundamental element of the LRWS’s on-going efforts are our close relationships with local authorities and a network of collaborators who share the same views of preventing child abuse and child labor exploitation.

Social Enterprise is a crucial part of the LRWS being able to provide for the girls. The Little Rose Bakery makes an assortment of delicious baked goods that can be purchased through their website.

Future

Due to a lack of funding and Covid-19, LRWS is in serious need of funding and support in order to achieve our goals for 2021-2022. To donate today please click here
