PROJECT EXODUS HOPES TO RAISE AWARENESS OF THE PLIGHT OF THE BRICK KILN WORKERS; AND THE FUNDS NEEDED TO HELP RELEASE THEM, ONE FAMILY AT A TIME.
This project was started in conjunction with Mary and Pastor Zahid Kenny, VfA partners, who have been working in these brick kilns to set up churches and schools.
Our Vision is to provide the resources needed to see these families set free from years of slavery providing hope for the future.
Our Mission is to provide the means to buy families out of the brick kilns; to rehome them and to set up at least one member of the family in a business as soon as they are released.
welcome to Mary Zahid Kenny
Mahreen Zahid Kenny (or Mary as many call her) is a Pakistan Christian currently working with refugees in Bangkok. She is the founder member of REACH PAKISTAN, a Christian charity in Pakistan where she has responsibility for the education program of slave children living in bondage at brick kilns across the Punjab province. She is also a member of the Vision for Asia global family.
We have invited Mary to our Trustees meeting on the 7-8 October to share more about the work, and she will also be touring around churches in the UK to speak about her work.
We look forward to having Mary and her children in the UK with us in September and October 2016.
