Hope is Rising, Plans are put together!

Staffs in the middle of their zoom meeting;
Give Chances presents Trampoline Project as a checkpoint for a new life for these brave young women. Pastor Hyemin Jeong, the representative of SOOM: Center for Sex Education and Counseling, will be leading a 10 days vision/healing trip from May 17th to 25th, 2022, travelling around NYC, Washington D.C., Niagara Falls, and New Jersey. Participants will meet mentors along the course and recreate their visions and goals.
We are more than excited to have them with us! Plans are being scrutinized and finalized to every detail, and we are confident in the positive energy that this will instill in the group.

The Trampoline Project at Give Chances is designed to help some selected young individuals from South Korea who emotionally and/or financially suffer. Through the collaboration with local welfare centers at Korea, we offer them a chance to travel to the US, expand their vision, and have a break from their everyday sufferings to recover and move forward. This year, we have decided to dedicate our support to a group of four young women. Their solidarity comes from having been through a tunnel together. In 100 words, their story:
In Incheon, South Korea, four victims spoke about their experiences with Kim, their pastor who had been sexually assaulting and harassing them and more young female adults for the past ten years. Through a lawsuit, Kim has been convicted to five years in prison for sex offenses. The victims have been physically and emotionally scarred, and no punishment will completely reverse the psychological effects of what they endured because of Kim. For sexual assault survivors who have fallen back against their will, we hope to provide the support for them to gain resilience and leap forward into their lives.
