Wisdom Doesn’t Always Come With Age

Youth Can Stop Human Trafficking

Last year, 17-year-old Malala Yousafzai was awarded the Nobel peace prize for her global advocacy for millions of girls being denied a formal education because of social, economic, legal, and political factors!

Josiah was 8 years old when he became king, and he reigned 31 years in Jerusalem. (2 Kings 22:1)

Ryan Hreljac built his first well for kids in Africa when he was 7 years old. Today, Ryan is 20 and his foundation has brought access to clean water and sanitation for more than 714,000 people!

When Om Prakash Gurjar was 13 years old, he was awarded the International Children’s Peace Prize for his work in bringing freedom and education to Indian children.

Some young, bright people have proven that wisdom doesn’t necessarily come with age. Youth have demonstrated their ability to change the world with their creativity, energy, and ideas.

At ZOE Thailand, we have 40 students at the ministry school with the majority of them being 20-26 years old. They are creative and engaging, and regularly do local outreaches to reach as many people as possible with the love of God and spread human trafficking awareness.

ZOE is working to open a home for trafficked children and teens in Los Angeles.

Next year, we will be launching our outreach tool “My Generation, My Fight” to not only actively engage the young generation to join us in the fight against human trafficking, but also engage every generation to help end modern day slavery.

If you would like us to share at your high school, college, or youth group, please email Hanne.

Be encouraged that no matter your age, you are capable of making a difference!
