Every child rescued from human trafficking or abuse are welcomed the same way. They are treated with dignity, loved unconditionally and given a safe place to find healing.
As young adults begin to heal from past trauma, we encourage their unique dreams. We provide job training and educational scholarships to help individuals work towards futures they love.
A victim is forced into a situation of dependency on their trafficker and forced to provide services to customers. Human trafficking crimes include acquisition, transportation and exploitation.
Bonded labour often appears to be an employment agreement, but a worker begins with a debt to repay, only to find repayment of the loan is not possible. Their enslavement in brutal working conditions becomes permanent.
