Rescue


How do we rescue children from sex trafficking?


Day and night, gents enter some of the darkest places on the planet in search of children trapped in sex trafficking and exploitation. Once identified, our agents work relentlessly to bring these children to freedom. Each child’s rescue looks different, but typically falls into one of four rescue types.

Covert


Our rescue agents go undercover in brothels, bars and on the streets to find children being sexually exploited. Once found, we build trust with them and offer a way out.

Raid


Our rescue agents identify child-sex-trafficking victims and gather the evidence needed to build a legal case against their traffickers. Then teams work alongside law enforcement to free victims and arrest offenders.

Survival

By visiting communities or receiving intelligence, rescue agents discover children being sexually exploited within their communities or on the streets and intervene to rescue the child.

Border Rescue


Rescue agents work at border crossing stations and actively identify trafficking victims. They will detain and question travelers and take action as needed to rescue those found to be victims of human trafficking.

Working together

Partnerships


Our rescue operations are sometimes executed in collaboration with other organizations. Learn more about our strategic work with partners here.

Who We Rescue


Our agents constantly fight to bring freedom to children caught in sexual exploitation. In the pursuit of children, we are often given the opportunity to rescue adults out of labor and sex trafficking situations too. All people are valuable, created in the image of God and are worthy of rescue and freedom.
