GIRLS ONLY

PCI’s San Diego-based Girls Only! program focuses on empowering young girls through the promotion of positive self-esteem, development of life skills, and inspiring positive motivation.

Girls Only! seeks to build resiliency in girls by providing them with inspiring mentors and collaborative peer guidance, interactive lesson plans and a place to be understood and feel safe. This unique program encourages young girls to learn to love and honor themselves, giving them the resources to find alternatives to the kinds of abusive relationships that often lead to involvement with trafficking, substance abuse, sexual assault and, eventually the criminal justice system.

KAJAL’S STORY

Kajal was only six years old when her grandmother left her and her sister at the Old Delhi Railway Station in India. Her sister was quickly sold off to someone, leaving a young Kajal alone.

Vulnerable and scared, she was left to sleep in the railway while working as a carrier.

She was lucky to meet one of PCI’s employees from a nearby drop-in center before she fell victim to a predator’s advances. Left in those circumstances, she would have been incredibly vulnerable to human trafficking and physical abuse.

WHY PCI NEEDS YOUR HELP

WORKING TOWARDS A BRIGHTER FUTURE

PCI’s programs that focus on the empowerment of the most vulnerable populations are an advancement in fighting human trafficking.

We know that women and girls who lack access to resources such as housing, education and income are at increased risk of sexual violence and exploitation.

By improving their circumstances through work towards eliminating gender discrimination and improving gender equity, we can create a brighter future for all..
