Project HELP: Human Exploitation

Through an initiative called Project HELPSM, WMU® identifies a critical issue and ties in national projects that help lead the church to address it. Since the launch of Project HELP in 1994–1995, WMU has focused on a variety of universal problems over the years ranging from hunger and poverty to HIV/AIDS and racial injustice. With each issue, we seek to raise the level of awareness and provide practical approaches anyone can implement to open the door for meeting needs and sharing the gospel.

During the years 2010–2014, we explored a condition of the human spirit that has been around for ages—the misuse of our relationships with other people.

Our definition of human exploitation is the unethical, selfish use of human beings for the satisfaction of personal desires and/or profitable advantage.

Six Issues of Exploitation:
Bullying, Cyberbullying, Queen Bee Bullying
Human Trafficking—Labor
Human Trafficking—Sex
Media's Exploitation of Families and Children
Exploitation of Natural Resources for Personal Gain
Pornography

Steps to addressing the issues.

This summer we joined millions of soccer enthusiasts from all over the world to root for our team in their effort to grasp the coveted World Cup title. Team USA was not expected to do much. As a matter of fact, many thought they would not make it through the first round, but they surprised us by demonstrating just how committed they were to the game and to winning. I grimaced as one player went out with a leg injury and two others left with broken noses during the early matches. But with each game they came back more determined than ever to play hard until the last second of each game.
