Women of Vision is delighted to announce our next conference call where you can dial in along with other women from all over the country. Friends are welcome!

More than one billion children live in poverty worldwide. A hundred and fifty million are street children. Almost two million kids are exploited in the global sex trade. Over a million boys and girls are trafficked annually for child labor. Trafficking is the use of fraud, force, or coercion to exploit a person for profit.

Reading these heart-wrenching statistics can be difficult. But Bill Forbes has devoted his life to championing World Vision’s response to the abuse and exploitation of children. Bill worked for World Vision in Cambodia for eight years, providing leadership to the Peace and Justice program. He studied at Fuller Theogical Seminary and Cornell University. Now based in Federal Way, WA, Bill’s current role includes monitoring programs which address child labor, street children, child trafficking, children affected by armed conflict and gender-based and domestic violence.

Join our host Angela Mason and listen to Bill’s inspiring and uplifting stories as he explains how World Vision is at the forefront of creating prevention strategies as well as restoring hope and happiness to many children.

Simply call our toll-free number at the scheduled time: 1-888-257-4733, Access # 627-372

Looking forward to joining you on the call!
