Love Justice International, formerly Tiny Hands International, was born with the opening of Salvation Children's Home in Chitwan, Nepal in 2004. Our mission is sharing the love of Jesus Christ by fighting the world's greatest injustices. We care for orphaned and abandoned children in family homes and operate schools in some of the poorest parts of the world. And because human trafficking is one of the most devastating and inhumane crimes in the world today, our unique transit monitoring strategy operates around the world. We train and place monitors at borders and transit points to identify and stop trafficking as it is occurring BEFORE people are exploited and sold into slavery. To date, we've intercepted over 20,000 individuals to prevent them from being trafficked. Through our data analysis and investigations, we've helped authorities arrest hundreds of suspected traffickers, and 53% of closed cases have resulted in convictions.
