Yesterday morning, NorthEast was invited to the Gems Uncovered Graduation Ceremony. Let me tell you --it could not have been more SPECIAL!
What is Gems Uncovered???
►An in-depth and extensive program that supports women/girls who are victims and survivors of human trafficking, and guides them as they begin a new, bright life.
►Their Mission Statement: To rebuild lives affected by Human Trafficking and Sexual Exploitation by offering resources, counseling, awareness and education in a safe, nurturing and loving environment. They equip each survivor with tools to enable them to soar and achieve their dreams and walk in their purpose.
During the celebration, each of the beautiful graduates were presented with CROWNS (see photos)! -- this symbolized the fact that they were born queens, until someone knocked off their crown. But now, they have reclaimed their crowns, and are ready to take on this new, bright chapter in their lives as QUEENS -- who can accomplish anything they set their minds to! NorthEast is SO proud of them and honored to work alongisde such a great program.
