Social Impact & Success Rate
The social impact of the SA Foundation is first noticeable on a global level: As SA Partner organizations are equipped and trained internationally by the Foundation, new program plants get up and running, offering services to greater numbers of young women and their children each year. From our records we have determined that as of March 01, 2017 the social impact of the SA Foundation, both nationally and internationally, includes approximately 2,200 women and 500 children.
Ethnicities served in SA programs include:
- First nations
- South American
In addition to providing front-line and long-term services to young women escaping sexual exploitation worldwide, leaders of SA programs include in their mandate to educate others to the realities of sexual exploitation & trafficking.
Educational talks and awareness raising was provided to over 28,121 people that included: police officers, social workers, service providers, church members, business leaders, the general public and volunteers.
The hope of all the SA leaders is that young women would not be exploited in the first place. To this end, the following services were provided:
- In Nepal 6,615 women received intervention and counseling at a border monitoring station
- In Hungary outreach has been provided to 500 women still in prostitution and prevention talks were provided to 975 youth in government homes
Replication is crucial for Social Impact as it transforms lives, communities and generations worldwide!
This global impact next has a ripple effect: No matter where an SA program model is located, it becomes instrumental in educating the helping professionals involved with sexually exploited/trafficked youth, women and their children!
Next, the community at large comes to appreciate the SA program model and welcomes it in their neighbourhood, and finally the funding community begins to see the benefit of long-term services and invest in the program.
All of this success leads to other cities desiring to implement the SA program model, bringing the social impact of the SA Foundation full circle!
When fully implemented, over a 3-year program period, the SA program model generates a steady success rate of over 70%. Success in SA programs is defined as program participants that:
- Escape and stay away from all sexual exploitation and are no longer engaging in sexual solicitation
- Remain drug & alcohol free
- Live crime-free lifestyles
- Maintain school and/or employment
- Live independently and pay personal bills in a timely manner
- Are emotionally stable to the point that emotional issues no longer interfere with day to day living
- When applicable, parent adequately
