Free the Captives is excited to launch our new literacy program, Read to Lead, that will break the cycle of poverty and change generations within teen trafficking victims’ families. The sad reality is that many of our teen trafficking victims are coming out of this environment with unplanned pregnancies. To create a better life for these children, we want to help them develop a love for reading.
We have created a list of new books that we are seeking for Read to Lead. This list will change quarterly. Donate these books by:
- Mailing them to Free the Captives, 2211 Rayford Road, Suite 111-418, Spring, TX 77386
- Putting them in a book drop.
- Attending a Royal Tea Party with your child.
- Donating funds, and Free the Captives will purchase them for you.
Donate these books from our child tested and librarian/parent approved reading list. We are looking specifically for new, board books for infants and toddlers. We would love for you and your child to pick out a book from our list once a month, pray for our teen trafficking victim and her child, and donate the book. Every month, this is a great way for you and your child to make a lasting impact together.
