Revelation 21:4

“He will wipe every tear from their eyes..”

Our Story

Wipe Every Tear started in a high school teacher's classroom. As a basketball coach and a father to five daughters and a son, Kenny Sacht had his heart broken for the injustices of the sex trade. It started with the commitment to support one girl. Then everything changed when we met Rebecca Angeles, our Filipino director. One girl quickly became four. Then in 2012 Wipe Every Tear secured the Hope House, the first home for our lovely girls. By providing the good news of a safe place to live, a warm meal, education and discipleship, the lives of young women and girls are being restored. We have grown from one house and four girls to currently caring for over 70 girls with six houses in two countries.
