January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month!
Our team has been preparing months in advance to empower and equip you to reach your community and sphere of influence with human trafficking education. We believe more people are going to be reached with human trafficking awareness than ever before.
There are currently 40.3 million people enslaved today…1 in 4 are children. These statistics may leave you with a bit of a pit in your stomach. They aren’t fun or easy to talk about. But they are necessary conversations. Because nothing will change if people don’t even know of the problem.
But the best part of Human Trafficking Awareness Month is that we aren’t stuck living with the stomach ache that children are being bought and sold in the commercial sex industry… No, it doesn’t end there! We can also raise awareness that there is hope!
We can raise awareness that children are being rescued and restored.
We can raise awareness that there are solutions being implemented all around the world.
We can raise awareness about the transformations taking place.
Whether you have been on a short term trip to Thailand and seen first hand, or heard the stories from friends or pastors, or generously volunteered and participated in our offices around the world, share your story. Why is your heart moved to do something about human trafficking?
Human trafficking awareness month can be more than sharing the heart breaking, gut wrenching statistics… You can share your experience of hope and action in this fight to end child trafficking!
