Human Trafficking is one of the fastest growing crimes in the world according to leading experts.
Interviews with rescued victims indicate that 12-14 years old is the average age a victim first becomes forced into sex trafficking. (Estes & Weiner, 2001)
200,000-300,000 children in the U.S. are at risk every year for commercial sexual exploitation (Estes & Weiner, 2001)
Runaways & thrown away children are vulnerable to traffickers due to unmet physical & emotional needs.
Child pornography is one of the fastest growing crimes in the United States. (FBI) Pornography is linked to human trafficking as both a source of supply and driving the demand for child sex trafficking victims. (Porn Harms)
HOW ONELESS WORKS:
ONEless leads a movement of freedom for the defenseless to make one less orphan and one less human trafficking victim through advocacy, awareness, education, and direct aid. ONEless demonstrates the love of Christ by meeting the needs of the vulnerable and oppressed.
ONEless is both Proactive and Reactive in the fight against Human Trafficking aka modern day slavery
Proactive – We want to do everything in our power to keep children from falling prey to human trafficking.
Education - We educate both students and adults on what human trafficking is, how they can protect themselves from becoming a victim, and how to recognize the red flags that someone may be a human trafficking victim.
Adoption Grants- We provide adoption grants to aid in the adoption process. An adopted child in a forever family makes the adopted child no longer vulnerable to trafficker once he/she ages out of the orphan system.
Homes of Hope - In partnership with you, ONEless creates long-term solutions to prevent child trafficking and to bring hope to the world’s most vulnerable. Through the creation of sustainable homes in for orphans, vulnerable children, and widows, we help create new families, provide education opportunities, and demonstrate Christ’s love.
Reactive – Restoration & Recovery for Victims of Human Trafficking
Care Kits - Victims of human trafficking are often rescued without clothing or undergarments. They also need basic toiletries. By supplying these basic necessities, we can all be involved in showing compassion to those who have suffered. Click here for a list of Items Needed for Care Kits.
Supporting a Safe House in SE Asia – We support Home of New Beginnings, a holistic relational ministry that seeks to address the spiritual, emotional, physical and educational needs of women and children who desire to leave the sex trade.
