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.

Have you ever taken a spiritual survey of your city? I’m not talking about going door to door with a pencil and paper to count how many Christians live in your area. Just drive around and look to see what’s there.
