There are an estimated 40 million men, women and children in slavery around the world, and that number is increasing every day.
International Justice Mission (IJM) is dedicated to ending slavery worldwide. As the largest international anti-slavery organization, IJM works with local justice officials, community partners and advocates across the world to stop the abuse of vulnerable populations. Because of IJM’s work, families have been freed from slavery, girls from brothels and children from cybersex trafficking.
1 RESCUE AND RESTORE VICTIMS
IJM searches for those in forced labor, working with families to identify taken individuals, while coordinating with law enforcement and local police to aid in rescue efforts. Rescued victims have many needs, including physical and psychological recovery. IJM provides resources for survivors as they heal from their experiences.
2 BRING CRIMINALS TO JUSTICE
Searching for and prosecuting traffickers is vital to ending sex trafficking. By working with law enforcement, IJM supports local systems in locking away these criminals and ending the cycle of slave owners and trafficking.
3 STRENGTHEN JUSTICE SYSTEM
By improving the laws and systems in place, IJM works to stop the abuse of people in poverty. IJM provides training, mentoring and support for local law enforcement, judges and government officials to empower them to stop human trafficking.
The Venverloh Family Foundation has dedicated its voice, time and resources to IJM’s mission since 2014.
The Venverloh family believes that through the work of the organization and its foundation in the Christian faith, we can stop this violent injustice and end slavery and sex trafficking in our lifetime.
