A Beautiful Refuge is an extension of Safe Refuge, a resource center for women and children in crisis based in the Philippines. Pervasive poverty and high unemployment in the Philippines leave children and young women particularly vulnerable to trafficking, malnutrition, and homelessness. For the past nine years, Safe Refuge has provided quality maternal care and childbirth services, educational opportunities and scholarships, emergency shelter, and supportive housing and aftercare for women and children.
The core of Safe Refuge’s mission is to help women gain control over their lives again and we believe that access to education and stable employment are the keys to their long term success. While the majority of women associated with Safe Refuge go back to school, enroll in college, or find employment, a handful of individuals experience greater difficulty finding good work while attempting to rebuild their lives and care for their children. These are the women A Beautiful Refuge social enterprise exists to serve.
