We envision mercy and compassion for the disempowered, healing for the abused, and recovery for victims of exploitation

We operate on the guiding principle that people who are harmed in a relationship are also healed in relationship.

Traffickers and abusers usually target vulnerable people, using lies to prey on those desperate for a better life. Trafficking in Persons (TIP) is not just a crime; it’s a human rights violation.

Ending TIP is an extremely complex challenge but one we are working around the world to address. We design prevention, protection, aftercare, and advocacy programs to create a path to restoration. Critical to this is working at all levels of society—from raising awareness at the household level to the education of law enforcement and social workers to advocacy at the highest levels of government.

In addition to providing hope, opportunity, and services for survivors of trafficking and building the capacity of survivor-facing resources and organizations, we work to undercut the systems and people responsible for trafficking in the first place.  Achieving inclusive agricultural and economic development and building environmental sustainability is necessary to successfully put a stop to TIP.
