Our Mission, Commitment & Plan
The rescue and restoration of human trafficking victims and the elimination of modern-day slavery
Commitment to Meeting the Needs of Trafficking Survivors
We partner with organizations and individuals globally to meet the needs of trafficking survivors and those who are considered to be at high risk of being trafficked. We partner by providing financial, emotional and spiritual support.
- Free for Life is committed to not only the rescue of trafficked girls, but their restoration. We fight for each and every girl to help them regain their sense of dignity, hope and love.
- Free for Life believes border monitoring stations are the most crucial point for intervention, between freedom and slavery.
- Free for Life believes that ‘the victim’ is the true expert on warning signs, risks, and trafficking prevention. This is why 90% of our staff at our Border Monitoring Stations are recovered victims, that have a heart for saving other lives!
- To maintain border monitoring stations staffed with trained personnel to prevent trafficking across the Nepal-India border.
- To provide shelters offering medical services and psychological and emotional support to restore stability and self-worth to rescued female trafficking victims
- To present educational opportunities to female trafficking victims, as well as those considered to be high-risk for trafficking, for the purpose of creating sustainable livelihoods.
To focus our efforts in 4 main areas: Shelters, Stations (Border Monitoring), Scholarships, & Community Building.
Shelters – Sanctuaries that become loving homes for rescued girls fostering health, stability and self- confidence. 100% of all needs met at our rehabilitation shelter are free of charge.
Stations (Border Monitoring) – Free for Life partners with PRC at a border monitoring station in Krishnanagar on the Nepal / India border
Scholarships – Scholarships are given to young women that have been victimized by trafficking as well as those considered to be at high risk. These scholarships are focused on higher education, as well as job skills training.
Community Building – Free for Life has graduated five classes of young women through our Tailoring Program. This program teaches the women a trade, as well as provides them with the tools like anti-trafficking training and skills like literacy to help them lead fuller, more productive lives. This builds stronger communities more resistant to the ploys of the traffickers.
What is the root of trafficking in Nepal and India? It is the vulnerability created by poverty and a lack of resources. At FFL, we want to go to the root and help the most at-risk communities for trafficking at every level: prevention, intervention and restoration.
