We at JFY are passionate about fighting human trafficking, mentoring at risk and underprivileged youth and encouraging micro-businesses globally. But we can’t sit back. We know it is imperative that we GO–and we want to bring you with us! So…we are offering a mission trek that will feature digital capture on the ground. Translation: come ready to make a documentary that we can post on YouTube and unleash on the world!
Focus For 2013: Eastern Europe
Looking ahead, we will be taking teams to Russia, Ukraine and Moldova in the summer of 2013. Australia has been and will continue to be one of our most popular outreach locations, so we are planning on leading a team there as well.

A great deal of attention has been paid to women’s rights as it pertains to the workplace. There certainly is much to be said for that.
But what about a woman’s right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?
I was deeply disturbed, as no doubt millions were in recent weeks, to hear of the brutal gang rape of a girl in New Delhi around Christmas. This young mother was hospitalized and eventually died from her internal injuries. We linked a story about it on our advocacy site: Justice Sought In India Gendercide Case.
Then there was the story that broke this week regarding the latest statistics from Planned Parenthood, as record breaking numbers of abortions have been performed these past three years by this organization–the direct result of a surge Federal funding of abortion on demand. The numbers are staggering.
[quote type=”center”] In the US alone, 54.5 million babies have been aborted since 1973. Over half of these children who we never given the opportunity to see the light of day were girls. These young ladies were denied life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Can we see this as a violation of women’s rights? [/quote]
We’ve added a new page to our site under the statistics section: The War On Girls Is A Fact Of Life. In it we details a few facts that underscore our point that gendercide is a major global problem. We hope you will join us in speaking out against global gendercide.
