Personal liberty is something most of us take for granted. Because we are free to speak, worship, work, travel and conduct ourselves as we wish, we assume these freedoms extend to every person on the planet—as indeed, they should.
However, a look at statistics quickly proves that assumption wrong. It is estimated that over 35 million people are currently enslaved around the world. This number is higher than at any other time before in history.
In addition to this horrifying problem, many find themselves enslaved to invisible jailers including poverty, homelessness, and addictions of various kinds. We partner with and develop programs designed to address these pressing issues in tangible ways.
