The problem

Each year, millions of men, women and children are victimized and exploited for labor and sexual purposes. Hoping for a better future for themselves and their families they are lured by false promises into a life of slavery and deprivation. Since 1999, our team has been working in South East Asia and the United States to empower individuals and organizations striving to bring an end to this inhumanity.
