There is no question that human trafficking is one of the most devastating and insidious crimes in the world today. There are an estimated 20-45 million slaves in the world right now—more than any other time in history.
We are on a mission to change that!
Over half of the world’s slaves are in South Asia, which is why the core of our work is based in India, Nepal, and Bangladesh. Although there are many types of slavery in this region, there is none so common and insidious as the trafficking of Nepali and Bangladeshi women and children into the Indian sex industry.
We are determined to rescue as many beautiful lives from being sold into human trafficking and slavery as possible. We are accomplishing this by working on the front lines, taking direct action through our transit monitoring and interception strategy.
Transit monitoring and interception are unique aspects to our work. We attack trafficking at the most strategic moment—while it is in the process of occurring and BEFORE women and children have been exploited or enslaved. We’ve developed a highly effective, data-driven approach to identify active and potential trafficking cases.
When one of our trained staff spots a red flag at a border or transit station, our team takes action to intercept and rescue. To date, we have rescued over 12,000 lives, not solely due to our own efforts but also due to the generous support and devoted prayer of our partners. And that number is growing every day.
You make this ministry possible!
Over the last 11 years, our amazing supporters have funded each and every one of these interceptions. Women and children in active and potential trafficking cases have been saved from a life of exploitation, abuse, and slavery.
Project Beautiful was created because we see beauty in all God's children. These are not faceless victims to be tallied up to support statistical data and reports. They are people created in the very image of God, beautifully and wonderfully made. We see and believe this in ALL people because every person has worth, value, beauty, and unique gifts. We want them to know they are priceless, and we advocate for them.
Because every life is beautiful. She is a child of God, and He knows her by name. She is worth everything to Him. She is not just a victim. She is human. She is precious. She deserves to be free. Because every life is beautiful.
