We Were Both Pretending
and we’re not even close to finished.
“They will be sitting, like we stand in a movie theater to get a ticket…”
This is what our India Country Director said when asked to describe the lines of men waiting to have sex with minor girls outside some Indian brothels. This video is an excerpt of that conversation.
After learning about the realities of human trafficking, a group of high school students were brave and vulnerable enough to go on camera for us. These students ages 14 – 18 chose to participate in a video project where they told the story of a real-life human trafficking survivor named Jami. The resulting video was incredibly powerful and one of our personal favorites.
We fight human trafficking by gathering evidence, utilizing technology, facilitating rescue missions, and empowering social workers to care for survivors.
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.
Since 2011, our investigative operatives have worked alongside national law enforcement partners to bring rescue to victims of human trafficking and arrests of their perpetrators. Our Search & Rescue teams are comprised of highly trained and vetted nationals–as well Western volunteer operatives (our DELTA team)–who gather evidence of human trafficking and facilitate rescue missions.
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.
When you join the Search + Rescue program, 100% of contributions made stay with Search + Rescue to be used for investigation, rescue, and aftercare work on the front lines.
