Newest pilot project celebrates its first 5 rescues!

Four children, ages 13-16, have been rescued from sexual exploitation and abuse in our newest project in Africa. The seven-year-old sibling of one survivor was rescued preemptively.

All five children have joined our community care program. They will receive individualized freedom plans, health checks and counseling as they begin their path to freedom.

New projects start in a pilot phase, allowing us to take the first steps of rescue, learn more about the dynamics of sexual exploitation in the region and adapt our programs to the specific needs of survivors.

This new project is located on the edge of a slum in a large city and is staffed by local professionals ready to find and rescue children from the darkest of circumstances. We are incredibly honored to be able to rescue children in this new region and continue alongside them on their journey to stay free over the next months.

Our stalwart border agents kept traffickers from escaping out of the country with 52 victims. 23 of the survivors are children, some as young as 13 years old.

Survivors received counselling about how to spot and avoid traffickers in the future. While most survivors here decline to press charges for fear of suffering negative community stigma, one brave family of an 18-year-old had three female traffickers arrested.

40 People Rescued from International Traffickers

Traffickers were attempting to lure their victims across the Nepal border.

Border agents intercepted 21 women and 19 children as traffickers attempted to lure them across the border and into a life of exploitation. The children were as young as 12 years old and included two boys.

Thankfully, these survivors will never know what the traffickers had in store for them. Once victims disappear across the border, it becomes extremely difficult to find them again. The few that do return tell harrowing stories of abuse and exploitation.
