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 19,000 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 750 suspected traffickers, and 54% 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.

Our Values Guide How We Work

Love Justice is driven by three biblical core values that shape every program and management decision we make.

Be the Kingdom

All our work is done through local churches. We strive to live our faith in Jesus Christ and His gospel by following the directives of the New Testament in how we live, work, and relate to one another.

Help Those Who Need It Most

Jesus said, "Whatever you do for the least of these, you do for me." In response to this teaching, our goal is to find and help the most desperate and needy people in the world.

Do Much with Little

We strive to find and implement the strategies that make the greatest possible difference in the lives of as many people as possible with the limited resources we have been entrusted with.
