The opportunity to create lasting change has never been greater.

With over 40.3 million victims of human trafficking in our world, The Exodus Road needs committed partners to help us find and free survivors today.

AFTERCARE

Survivor Fund

TER’s Survivor Fund is designed to meet the individual, practical needs of survivors whom we impact directly. The fund includes educational fees, repatriation and legal fees, crisis medical care, trauma-informed therapy, and more. Launching in 2021, this fund will primarily be used on a personal, individualized basis, but could be used for survivor-focused programming, as well.

Global Operations

Double TER's Rescue Teams

In order to increase our investigative capacity, TER needs to double the front-line investigative staff. In India and Latin America, these funds would allow us to hire at least eight additional national operatives, support staff, or social workers that play critical roles in helping police rescue survivors and arrest traffickers. The remaining $50k would be used in the United States to support DELTA Team – Western volunteer operatives who deploy globally on operations throughout the year. 

GLOBAL OPERATIONS

Freedom Tech

Our teams design and deploy covert gear and cutting-edge technology in a variety of settings, and they use various platforms to better fight trafficking online. This project supports the purchase and maintenance of undercover gear, cyber-forensic software, training platforms, and other technology that increases our capacity to find those currently trapped in trafficking and deliver that evidence to police partners.

Global Operations

TraffickWatch Academy

Traffickwatch Academy leverages experts to strategically train and equip leaders to combat trafficking in their communities. In Brazil, our ten-module training course – designed for local law enforcement – will be launched and presented to thousands of officers in late 2021. In the United States, our training modules are designed for the general public to raise awareness of trafficking in America. With funding, we would create a unique module targeted specifically to U.S. students, along with additional educational resources. 

GLOBAL OPERATIONS

Rescue to India for One Year

These funds will be used to underwrite our Search + Rescue team in India. Our team of national operatives and social workers has an extensive network and strong police partnerships throughout India. They rescue an estimated 100 survivors each year from sex trafficking. Our Country Director recently won a prestigious national award for his work in justice, and our team is poised for an even greater impact. This investment would nearly fully fund current operations for one year.
