We believe in a world where human life is valued.

In places where it’s not, we stand in the gap to love people and fight for justice.

Learn how we work

Human trafficking is one of the most devastating and inhumane crimes in the world today. We’re on a mission to change that.

What We Do

Stop human trafficking

40.3 million people live in modern-day slavery because of human trafficking*. We train and place monitors at borders and transit points to identify and stop trafficking as it is occurring, BEFORE beautiful lives are exploited and sold into slavery. To date, we've intercepted over 20,000 lives to prevent them from being trafficked. *Global Slavery Index

Put traffickers in jail

Since we intervene as the crime of trafficking occurs, we’re able to collect immensely valuable data on traffickers and their networks. Through our data analysis and investigations, we've helped authorities arrest over 800 suspected traffickers, and 53% of closed cases have resulted in convictions.

Care for the most vulnerable

We care for orphaned and abandoned children in family homes, and operate schools in some of the poorest parts of the world. We also regularly educate about human trafficking and safe foreign employment to the communities and justice systems that need it most.
