According to one estimate, out of 50 victims cared for in the first year, 75% feel better equipped, better informed, and ready to hold an elective office. Moreover, out of 50 victims taken in, about 15 would be ready to take legal action against their exploiters. And in total, 70% have greater knowledge of their rights and the possibilities of recourse.
