Free for Life in Action
FFLI works in the 4S Model focusing on four areas to include: Shelters, Stations (Border Monitoring), Sustainable Programs and Scholarships.
Stations (Border Monitoring)
Stations are defined as any physical location in which an individual may come into contact with a trafficked victim. FFLI works through stations to identify and potentially intervene on behalf of a trafficked individual. This is done through educational materials and individuals trained to identify potential victims. For example, FFLI has border monitoring stations in Nepal established along unsecured or “open” borders with high rates of human trafficking. The border monitoring offices also serve as a planning center for external rescue operations.
FFLI uses the term ‘shelters’ to refer to both temporary and long-term shelters. Shelters are safe places for survivors, where their immediate and long-term care needs are met. Immediate needs include: food, clothing and shelter. Long-term needs include: counseling, health care, education and skills training, etc.
FFLI provides scholarships to individuals who have survived human trafficking. Scholarships allow individuals to access programs and resources, and include some the sustainable programs mentioned to the right. Scholarships are awarded for education and restorative care.
Sustainable programs are programs in which an individual is taught a trade or a skill. These programs are used for the prevention of trafficking, for the education of individuals who are at-risk of being trafficked and for the restoration of human trafficking survivors. Sustainable programs include skills training, income-generating agricultural programs and community education programs.
