Shared Hope International is proud to participate in The White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives video story contest entitled “Portraits of Compassion.” The goal of the contest is to shine a light on the countless Americans who offer help and hope to others in need while lifting up their communities. The “Portraits of Compassion” video contest is a chance to highlight this vital work and inspire others to service.
Our video, “One Life at a Time,” captures the heart of Shared Hope International and reveals how Shared Hope’s founder, Linda Smith, was compelled to create an organization dedicated to serving some of the world’s most destitute. See firsthand how Shared Hope partners with local groups to help women and children who were enslaved in the sex trade by providing them with shelter, healthcare, education, and vocational training opportunities.
Through our three-pronged strategy—prevent, rescue, and restore—Shared Hope International will continue to eradicate sexual slavery, one life at a time.
