BENEFITING: SHARED HOPE INTERNATIONAL
Their efforts are three-fold: PREVENT, RESCUE and RESTORE
PREVENT the demand for women and children by increasing the public’s awareness of sex trafficking and the conditions of modern-day sexual slavery.
Shared Hope International's prevention programs examine the conditions that allow women and children to be bought and sold and document the marketplaces of victimization around the world. We work to enhance awareness of modern day sexual slavery and we build international alliances to combat sex trafficking.
RESCUE women and children escaping from sex trafficking.
Shared Hope International's rescue programs are integrated into the work of local restoration centers. Through these partnerships we are able to successfully remove women and children from sexual exploitation.
RESTORE by building communities that heal and empower women and children who have been victimized by traffickers.
Shared Hope International's restoration programs are developed and operated by local partners, addressing both the immediate and long-term needs of each victim of trauma. Restoration services include residential facilities, medial and mental health care, education, job training and economic development programs.
