About Hope for Justice:
Hope for Justice exist to end modern slavery by preventing exploitation, rescue victims, restore lives and reform societies. With 32 locations in 9 countries Hope for Justice uses a evidence based approach to tackle the challenges with human trafficking in both Asia, US, Africa, Australia and Europe. Last year they rescued over 2000 victims and re-integrated about 1000 children with their parents. I have personally visited their programmes in Cambodia and was struck by how young some of the girls in the program where. Knowing that a 6-year old was rescued from the sex-industry felt so both so wrong and so right. Wrong that she was there in the first place, and right because now she has hope for her future. Please see their year in review for more information about their amazing work: http://hopeforjustice.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Year-in-Review-2018-19-desktop-optimised.pdf
