Human trafficking is considered the world’s second largest, fastest growing organized crime. The Not For Sale campaign estimates up to 30 million people toiling as modern slaves around the globe, with an estimated 2 million women and children sold every year. Profits from human trafficking business are as high as $32 billion annually.
The Somaly Mam Foundation (SMF) is working to end these atrocities through direct services for victims, survivor-driven advocacy, strategic multidisciplinary partnerships, and mass media and online platforms. Somaly Mam, a survivor and present-day activist, speaks at conferences, summits, and universities worldwide to share her story and address her solution: empowering survivors as the next generation of change-makers. Somaly has aided tens of thousands of women and children in knowing their rights and escaping their plight, and has been recognized as a global leader for her work.

Somaly Mam needs our support. Mozilla Firefox is giving away $50,000 to the fundraiser that raises the most. Help me win that money so that we can put an end to sexual slavery once and for all.
Thank you for supporting this important cause!
