Web 2.0 And helping women globally

In responce to my llast post. How do we go about actually going about putting a stop to the huge epidemic of sex trafficking. Well, I know that there are a lot of people who have taken their time of their day to raise awareness on sex trafficking and what people should know, but that is not enough. In my opnion, I think that in order to actually make a difference is if we actually target the core of the problem. Just like how undercover cops go in and actually being apart of their investigation is how they catch their bad guys, well, so if we actually were under cover "activist" getting girls who are on the streets already and getting their trust so that you may be able to help them escape from the life that they are faced with. So now, the question you would think of after that is where do we put them after we have rescued them, we can't just leave them and let them struggle for themselves. We need to create a safe haven for them that they may come to, a place where their pimps or owners may be restricted from entering.
I know that advocating about sex trafficking is very vital to those who are not in that situation. I speak for those who are already slaves to this sickening pervetion. Women, children who are already slaves to sex is really hard for them to let go and move on because some one has stolen every thing from them, scared them from the inside/out it is not like just hitting a person and it is over, NO. It is more than that, the damage that rape alone does to a person scares them for a long time. So, if we can actually raise money to get psychiatric assistance in those safe havens so that we can help them get on their feet and get about the world so that they may not relapse, due to the amount of drugs forced apon them for the time of being in the streets or something like that.
I would like to be one of those people who actually go to the layer of "devil" and actually helping these women get out. I believe in the saying, "In order to change someone's life, live in their shoes to know how to save them". I understand completely what they are comign from and what they are going against and the emotions that they had to shut off to survive. There is never a lost person, other wise they would not be alive. By lurring in with their strengths is the best way to actually get them out of the streets. There are so many things that a person can do to actually start a path of stopping sex trafficking. If someone is on boar with this mission or cause please let me know or write back and tell me if you would think this is a goid idea to raise funds to starting places for these people to go after being rescued and actually giving them therapy after.....
