How we fight human trafficking.


Raising awareness and empowering the vulnerable.

While our primary focus is on human trafficking intervention work, we are deeply committed to holistically empowering freedom through prevention work as well! Our TraffickWatch® website is an award-winning online experience that educates the general public about the realities of human trafficking locally and globally.


Bringing rescue to sons and daughters alongside local police.

Our primary expertise lies in empowering nationals to gather evidence of human trafficking, and facilitate rescue missions with local police. Since 2011, we have provided local law enforcement, governments, and NGOs with technology, investigative support, funding or training to enhance their ability to deliver justice in their own countries. We have encouraged effective collaboration among organizations fighting slavery while working within national legal systems to effectively change criminal activity by making human trafficking a more dangerous crime.


The first step in the journey of restoration.

The Exodus Road employs social workers as an integral part of our Search + Rescue teams in each country where we work. In the critical hours after a rescue, our social workers are present to care for survivors in crucial ways. We also support local, private aftercare shelters that specialize in caring for human trafficking victims.


“Thanks a lot because you’re the one who did this for me. May God bless you and your family. I'm so so happy. Thank you.”

Cathy, August 2013

The Exodus Road has been a chief partner, and we are incredibly pleased to continue to work alongside them for the freedom of sex slaves and the empowerment of local investigative and advocacy teams. As a charitable foundation, we highly recommend their work and their integrity.

Austin Bevere, Private Foundation Partner

Since I am unable to physically be the one to rescue people, I love being able to donate to an organization that is able and willing to rescue as many people as they can. The stories of rescue are a great way to lessen the gap between me and those who are caught in human trafficking. It reminds me that each person is important. No matter how far away they are or what language they speak... they matter!

Mindy, Donor

I spend a lot of time telling the story of The Exodus Road and our fight against trafficking -- trying to plant the seeds of hope and action that I truly believe are going to go out and bend the moral arch of the universe towards justice. I love talking about the heroines and heroes that I've met doing frontline work in the arenas of justice, mercy, and compassion... and I love trying to convince anyone I'm in conversation with that small and loving action in the face of fear and apathy is the only way we're going to see change.
