My name is Anya, and for far too long, darkness was all I knew. I was trapped in a cycle of abuse, held captive by a gang who saw me as nothing more than a possession. Each day, they’d chain me up in a cold, damp room, leaving me alone until their return. Fear was my constant companion, the silence broken only by the gnawing in my empty stomach.

One day, a sliver of hope pierced through that darkness. A kind neighbor, Ms. Lee, noticed the stench emanating from the abandoned building next door. With a hesitant heart, she peeked inside and found me, a trembling mess, chained to a wall. Ms. Lee didn’t hesitate. She contacted the authorities, and that’s when Radiate Coalition became my lifeline.

Radiate Coalition is more than just an organization; it’s a beacon in the storm, a community of fierce advocates who fight for girls like me. They became my family, providing not just a safe haven but also the emotional and medical support I desperately needed.

Through Radiate’s programs, I learned that I wasn’t alone. They offered counseling to help me process the trauma I endured, therapy to heal the physical and emotional scars, and education to empower me to dream of a brighter future. I started attending school again, a simple joy I never thought I’d experience.

But there are countless Anyas out there, girls trapped in the shadows, yearning for a chance to escape. Radiate Coalition relies on the generosity of donors to continue its vital work. Here’s how your contribution can make a difference:
