Our solution

We combat sex trafficking, debt bondage, forced labor and child labor by partnering with on-the-ground organizations who rescue, rehabilitate and reintegrate survivors of slavery and human trafficking. We free people from many backgrounds and walks of life - girls, boys, women and men. As a small organization, we are flexible and responsive to our partners’ needs.

We provide education, job skills training and community prevention programs in vulnerable areas. Our programs create long-term, systemic change, and provide pathways to a better life.
