Bordered by Afghanistan and India, Pakistan ranks as one of the most persecuted nations in the world. Many Christians are isolated. Girls are seen as less valuable, exposing the need for gospel-centered care for young women in vulnerable situations.
Through a local U.S. contact, (un)adopted was introduced to a Pakistani pastor and his wife running a home for vulnerable girls. They are changing lives through the churches they pastor, setting brick slaves free, and sharing the hope of the gospel with hundreds of people.
Our partners offer hope to girls who are at high risk because of their home situations. Through the Home, vulnerable girls are provided with a place to live, learn, and grow in a loving and caring environment. These girls are thriving under their love and leadership. Many of them are following Jesus as they grow up in a country hostile to Christianity. (un)adopted offers opportunities to sponsor these girls through our Child Sponsorship program. In addition to the Girl's Home, our partner planted two underground churches and has seen many salvations and baptisms. They provide Sunday School for children around the community and pastor conferences uniting Christians around the country. Out of their funds, this couple pays to set brick slaves free. These are men and women bound to brick slavery until their debt is paid. Our partner covers individuals' debts. Our partner also opened four sewing centers to reach vulnerable women in the community. We continue to see many lives impacted through the center as they learn of their value in the Lord, equipped with life and job skills that will serve them long term.
