We are leaders in a worldwide effort to prevent and eradicate sex trafficking and slavery through education and public awareness.

We work diligently across the world, partnering with local groups to help women and children enslaved in the sex trade by providing them with shelter, healthcare, education and vocational training opportunities. Our three-pronged strategy- prevent, rescue and restore- is producing hope. We will not give up. We will continue to invade the darkness, rescuing and restoring young women and precious children- one life at a time.
