Shared Hope International exists to rescue and restore women and children in crisis. We are leaders in a worldwide effort to prevent and eradicate sex trafficking and slavery through education and public awareness.
Sexual Slavery. The term preferred by Shared Hope International in reference to human trafficking. Shared Hope expresses their reasoning, “Speak to a victim, and you will not hear that she was “trafficked.” You will hear that she was traumatically raped and brutalized by someone whose sole purpose was to take away her personhood and convert her body into cash. You will hear her tell how men of every age and description act out their violent fantasies on her, and how she becomes both a joke and a criminal in the eyes of her community. Hear her story and it will be clear that she has no one in the world to be her defender.”
Shared Hope International is a fantastic non-profit organization that works with local organizations to fight sexual slavery. Since 1998, they have conquered the world of human trafficking through three action-oriented imperatives: prevent, rescue & restore, and bring justice. Within these three actions, they specifically help the victims of the sex trade, offering safe shelter, therapy, spiritual and physical healing, education and vocational training, and strong dedication to transforming policy and legislation within the law to provide protection and justice for these victims. While working hand in hand with victims, they also promote community awareness, offering many different training sessions on specific issues or for specific audiences.
