2022 was a remarkable year for freedom. We took our work with local partners to new heights, bringing us closer to ending sex trafficking. The impact of our efforts reverberated across the globe, with more women and children rescued, additional safe homes established, policy work expanded to Spain and Mexico, and more aftercare support provided for survivors.
Our community helped fuel our mission to accelerate and resource the fight against sex trafficking and exploitation. Here's how:
More survivors empowered and employed. 3,311 survivors were empowered with strategic job training—917 employed as a direct result. For many, this means living out a dream and ending the cycle of generational trafficking in families.
More people set free from exploitation. Since 2012, 843,965 victims, survivors, and at-risk people have been profoundly impacted by the Atlas Free global network—an over 30% increase from 2021.
More kids back in school. 11,102 women and children were empowered with educational assistance to combat vulnerability and build brighter futures. Our favorite stories are where trafficking never happened.
