The 2019-2020 Southwest District Governor's project is Thorn. Thorn is a non-profit organization dedicated to preventing and eliminating child sex abuse and trafficking.
As of 2018, Thorn has:
Identified 10,081 children as victims of child sex trafficking
On average, identified eight children daily as victims through Thorn's Spotlight program.
38 countries using Thorn's products to find child victims internationally.
The Southwest District's goal is to raise $20,000 for Thorn by District Convention in Chandler, AZ. With 5,000 Southwest Key Clubbers, that's $4 a member. Throughout the year, the Southwest board will release information on ways you can help out either through fundraising or raising awareness.
