About The Apple of God's Eyes

Apple of God's Eyes in Nepal ministers to girls and boys who have experienced the rejection of their families and the horrors of life in the Red Light District.

The ministry has four rehabilitation homes for 160 children, most of whom were previously trafficked into the sex trade themselves. Others of the kids were at risk of being trafficked, are the siblings of those who have been trafficked, or were vulnerable in other ways. Today, these girls and boys live in loving homes, where they learn the Gospel and how Christ's death and resurrection means He made a way to be free from their sin and shame. Each home has a grandma figure, a family pet, and mixed ages as a way to reestablish family normalcy.

The children are given extensive biblical counseling, an excellent education at the Apple of God's Eye school, vocational training in skills that are valuable to the culture, and most importantly—hope for the future that comes from new life in Christ.

As the kids grow up in the homes and trust in Jesus, they are given responsibilities as leaders in the ministry. The older ones take mentorship roles in the younger ones' lives as they worship the Lord through their work in His name.

In addition to their primary work in the homes, Apple of God's Eyes is involved in outreach to remote villages of Nepal where they provide free dental care, awareness training about human trafficking, and the Gospel. Also, the ministry runs a for-profit bridal shop, which, in time, will help off-set costs of running the ministry. Plus, girls from the homes are trained in sewing, baking, hair styling, make-up, and business skills as they work in the shop after school.

Meet the Directors: Silvio and Rosmari

Silvio and his wife Rosmari first traveled to Nepal from their home in Brazil for a short-term trip to help out with counseling children rescued from the sex trade for one year. But during their time there, they were so filled with love for the kids they were meeting that they decided they couldn't leave! So, in the year 2000, Silvio, Rosmari, and their son moved to Nepal permanently.

They began with one home, and one by one the girls came to them after being trafficked themselves or because they were at risk. As Silvio and Rosmari's hearts grew, so did their Apple of God's Eye family.
