In Cameroon, one in five girls between the ages of 15 and 19 have been raped or sexually abused. It’s rarely talked about. And it’s happening to girls younger than 15 too. These girls need to heal. They need to know they are loved and cherished by God.

The Esther Project is a unique Bible-based trauma healing programme. It’s a holistic ministry where women study the Bible and receive a copy of God’s Word; learn vital life skills, like how to make things and run a small business; and allow God to heal their emotional and psychological wounds.
