That's why since 2012, we've made it our mission to put sexual exploitation out of business. Not only does human trafficking remove our most basic human rights, but it prevents children from getting an education and women from employment opportunities, damages the economy, affects public health, and harms families. Freedom means dignity, hope, health, and safety, especially for women and children. We're here to make that happen.
We know that effective work requires effective people, so we work with local experts who understand the vulnerabilities in their communities and culture best. Where we don't see a program in place, we build what's needed and share the knowledge with others to elevate the whole movement.
But freedom is changing everything for women like Claudia, Priyanka, and Chesa. Read their stories.
