Yes, we can!
Most kids get lured into the dark world of sex slavery because they don’t know the deceptive tactics of traffickers. Someone shows up in a village and offers to educate the girls. “Just sign here,” he tells the parents, who never see their daughters again.
A trafficker offers a teenage girl a job as a model, waitress, or nanny. She has no idea she’ll really be forced into sex slavery. She’ll be threatened, beaten, and raped over and over, night after night, until she dies of AIDS.
How to stop the traffic
Wherever kids and parents receive awareness training, the rate of child sex trafficking plummets. Unfortunately there’s not enough training — nor is it available to those who are most at risk.
That’s why we created a global campaign called the Born2Fly Project to create awareness about child trafficking -- with the ultimate goal of ending it. Our mission is to educate children and their parents about the dangers of child sex trafficking through a strategic, far-reaching, age-appropriate campaign.
Our goal is not just to prevent kids from being trafficked but to help them fulfill their dreams. Born2Fly sets kids free to soar so they can dream big dreams and make a difference in the world around them.
