We partner with countries that are serious about measurably improving human trafficking enforcement, but lack access to the model or the specialized expertise to do so. We implement our model in coordination with our Partner Countries’ governments over an extended period of time until the model is self-sustaining and the justice system is fully equipped to stop traffickers.
Our approach to combating trafficking fills a gap in the global anti-trafficking response by stopping traffickers in their tracks. When traffickers are unable to continue their illegal operations, they can no longer seek out more vulnerable people to exploit.
As justice systems implement our model, they stop traffickers and move cases through to trial more quickly. This reduces the amount of time a survivor is waiting for justice and waiting to move on to a new life.
