13 survivors step into freedom in Uganda
Thirteen survivors, ages 12 to 17, have been rescued and enrolled in our community care program in Uganda.
Those rescued had some common factors making them particularly vulnerable to exploitation, like not having attended school this year.
Three survivors were orphans, two had lost one parent, and only one lived with both of her parents. Four survivors were trying to help their family financially while two survivors battled to care for their children.
Our reintegration programs implement unique freedom plans for each child. We provide girls with counseling, financial support for necessities like food and shelter, as well as access to education and vocational training.
45 rescued at Nepal border
Our rescue agents rescued 45 people at the border of Nepal, including saving a mother and her two children from the clutches of her trafficker.
The male trafficker promised the mother a new life abroad and provision for her kids, ages three and five, before luring her to a hotel near the border. He also convinced her to hand over her money and jewelry, saying he would arrange the trip.
After a few days at the hotel, she overheard him on the phone saying he wouldn’t take them across the border until he got a payment. Frightened, she tried to leave, but he threatened her children.
Meanwhile, the mother’s family filed a missing person case, alerting police and our team. Together, they discovered her location before rescuing her and the kids at the hotel. The trafficker fled and was not arrested.
Three girls rescued in Thailand
Three survivors bravely accepted our offer of freedom from the sex industry.
Three survivors, ages 17 and 18, were rescued from exploitation via covert operations. They chose freedom and have joined our community care program. Two have decided to pursue computer studies together and are being enrolled in classes. The other will attend high school.
45 girls safe and free in Uganda

Each survivor will receive support through our community care program including regular classes, counseling and vocational training.
