Hopes. Dreams. The pursuit of a bright future. For most of us, we take these privileges for granted. After all, we view them as basic human rights. Yet across the globe exist thousands, even millions, of lives that are never afforded the opportunity to know what it is to have hopes and dreams for a future filled with success, accomplishment, and love. Watch the following video for a glimpse into what it's like to have no choice but to blindly trust the promise of a stranger in order to somehow fulfill your desire for a better life.
Every beautiful life deserves the opportunity to pursue a future without fear and oppression. Human trafficking is a devastating crime that destroys innocent lives fighting to provide for themselves and their families. Traffickers prey on the struggles and misfortunes of primarily women and children, offering them false promises of opportunity and wealth. The traffickers entice their victims with unimaginable hopes and dreams they have never had the luxury of entertaining.
To date, with the diligent support of our partners, we have intercepted over 16,000 innocent lives from the potential of being trafficked. However, there is still so much to do in this crucial fight. The task may seem daunting, but together we can stop human trafficking.
