stw// Human Trafficking

 

People used for labor or sex at the profit of another, is slavery.  We want to see it end.


Locally,
we seek to educate and advocate with other organizations and state authorities who are fighting this rising epidemic in our own backyard. Teams of women and men have taken to the streets to educate masses in our Stand In Events. We have hosted trainings and network meetings. We have educated ourselves and brought awareness to those we know. By working with our Orphan Care Initiative in caring for teens in the foster care system, we work to prevent the young girls (average age of recruitment in domestic sex trafficking is 12) from being abused.

Internationally, we have labored in Pattaya, Thailand which is the hub of the sex trafficking in that region. Teams have partnered with Thai groups to pray, reach out, and work to prevent thousands of children from being trafficked and rescued, stabilize and empower 1,000 girls and boys to live free of the sex trade. Through partnerships and the start of our safe transitional houses, we are seeing lives changed and restored.
