A Birthday Barbie

Restoring a Stolen Childhood

Selling liquor and drugs in her family’s bar as a child, Carli quickly had any glimpses of childhood taken away from her. She was addicted to the drugs and found herself delivering and self-medicating. At 10 years old, she had been a victim of labor trafficking since she was a little girl. Soon after, her family started sex trafficking her as well. We met Carli in an aftercare home after her rescue. She has been able to get help with her addiction and funds for her education.
