PREVENTION

the need.

Around the world, children are consistently one of the most vulnerable populations to be trapped in human slavery — a vulnerability that increases if the children are orphaned, uneducated or economically disadvantaged. We believe the only way to protect future generations from cycles of exploitation is to prevent them from occurring in the first place.

Free for Life developed a first-of-its-kind Prevention Curriculum to empower at-risk youth across languages, regions and cultures.

Traffickers are often not masked strangers taking children from their homes. More commonly, they look like family members, friends or significant others.

This is why the curriculum was created to teach youth about healthy boundaries, safe support networks and how to prevent, identify and respond to potential trafficking situations they may encounter.
