Saving one starfish at a time

FLC freshman helping girls escape child prostitution
Sharon Awino, age 13, was reluctant at first to meet with the Americans who wanted to help her. The shame of being a child prostitute – often done voluntarily to help feed the family – is great. But ultimately, Sharon became the third girl to be aided by She Has a Name, a nonprofit run by Fort Lewis College freshman Blythe Crow.
Blythe Crow is returning to Nairobi, Kenya, in May. She and the other members of her nonprofit, She Has a Name, stay in the middle of the Mathare slum.
Christine Ann Okwisa was nearly 20 and had been in the prostitution trade for several years when She Has a Name sponsored her. That’s older than the nonprofit had planned, but group members were convinced that Christine was in dire circumstances.
