NEW! Drop Down Now Included In Vertex

This month another new addition to the Vertex Framework is the S5 Ultimate Drop Down. This is a feature that was seen in several Shape 5 designs. Many have asked how to add to other designs so we decided to build this into the framework so every design here on out will have this functionality. Be sure to read more about this new feature here: Features:

  • Customize almost everything! Shadows, borders, gradient, opacity
  • Contains 6 module positions drop_down_1, drop_down_2, drop_down_3, drop_down_4, drop_down_5 and drop_down_6
  • Auto adjust to the height of your content
  • Set your own open and close text
  • And many more features!

Straatwerk’s outreaches to women trapped in prostitution started in the 1980s in the harbour of Cape Town.

In the late 1990s the focus moved to women on the streets and subsequently we have also had the privilege of being involved in child-focussed family outreaches. The cur- rent ministry grew from these opportunities.

Our aim is to see local churches engaged in

  • the prevention of those at risk of entering prostitution; and
  • the restoration of those who have been involved in prostitution.

We assist churches by:

  • communicating prayer information;
  • coordinating the Valuable to Jesus prevention campaign;
  • creating and leading outreach opportunities to mobilise and train;
  • running Project Restoration; and
  • developing Journey of Hope resources.



Can you see her? Will you let God show you?
Her face instead of her clothes
Her eyes instead of her body

Can you see her? Will you let God show you?
She has a name instead of a label
A broken heart instead of a hard one

Can you see her? Will you let God show you?
The image of God instead of an object of scorn
Her worth to the Saviour when there’s no worth to the world

Can you see her? Will you let God show you?
His heart of forgiveness instead of your heart that judges
His blood that covers instead of our rules that condemn

Can you see her? Will you let God show you?
And when you do see…what then?

The message of the dolls

  • you are lovingly handmade by the Almighty God;
  • there is no one like you;
  • you are extremely valuable, no money can buy you;
  • and God wants to keep you safe in the palm of His hand.

Why boys also get dolls

Sexual abuse, prostitution and pornography can happen to boys as well. They also learn that real men take good care of women and children.
