20,000+ children toil on Lake Volta - many have been trafficked

“There is a fire burning inside of me when I think of my past experiences. I can hear a voice yelling from the fire saying to me, “You have to fight. You must save other girls.”
1 in 4 victims of modern slavery is a child.
Kumar was one. From making bricks to building protection for his community. Kumar was forced into brutal labor in a brick kiln at just seven years old. Watch as he shares how his life has been transformed after IJM and the local government rescued him thanks to friends like you:
Over 1.6 million children are exploited and abused.
The number of children who are exploited and abused is equivalent to the population of Phoenix, Arizona. But with your support, we will work until all are free!
YOU are making an impact on human trafficking
Last year, you helped rescue 7,496* people who had been trafficked. Thank you for bringing freedom and restoration to men, women and children around the world. You are making an impact.
Because another truth about human trafficking is that when we all come together in the name of justice to fight, we can end it. Please give today.
