Restoring Survivors One Girl At A Time

Giving hope to girls who have been rescued from sexual abuse and trafficking


The Butterfly Project, started in 2014, provides caring homes to girls in the Philippines who have survived sexual abuse or child trafficking.  These girls, our “butterflies,” share a common experience of suffering and survival – some were sold into sexual slavery, some were exploited on the Internet, and some were sexually abused in their homes by family members they once trusted, yet all have found a loving home at the Butterfly Project. Children who have experienced such abuse need to feel safe first and foremost. When they feel safe, they are better able to work towards healing and restoration. The aftercare process in a child’s life is like that of a butterfly; the time spent in a cocoon develops them into a new creature.  The Butterfly Project is all about bringing the gift of hope through the saving love of Jesus Christ.  

By contributing to the Butterfly Project, you will provide resources each girl needs as she overcomes trauma, finds healing, and is one day ready to fly on her own.  We support our butterflies on this journey by caring for their hearts, minds, strength and spirits.


Because of the stigma of sexual abuse, and the cost of caring for victims, many children’s homes in the Philippines turn away girls who have sexual abuse in their backgrounds. Our aftercare homes provide loving, safe, and peaceful environments for each girl to begin the healing process.


We provide all children with access to psychological and counseling services to help them overcome the trauma they have experienced.  We also offer access to private Christian education to help them embrace their future with hope.


We work with our butterflies, the government, and partner organizations to help each butterfly tell her story and bring perpetrators of sex crimes and child trafficking to justice.


The Butterfly Project is a ministry of First Love International Ministries, a non-denominational Christian organization that believes in the healing, life changing power of Jesus Christ – “Therefore if anyone is in Christ he/she is a new creation.  The old passed away; behold, the new has come.”  (2 Cor 5:17).
