Hope for Justice
Mission: To end human trafficking and slavery, in our generation.
With more than 20 million slaves in the world—more than half of which are women and girls—human trafficking is one of the most devastating social issues of our time.
Hope for Justice uses the following four-tiered strategy to bring freedom to the least, the last, and the lost.
They train frontline professionals such as the police, care homes, doctors, and outreach programs to identify victims and/or work appropriately with them.
Their investigators work closely with local police to identify victims of human trafficking, build bridges of trust with them, and remove them from situations of exploitation.
They secure criminal and civil justice for victims and advocate for access to housing and health services and the cancellation of debts created by traffickers.
They work with victims to overcome trauma and rebuild their lives. Their restorative care homes offer tailored programs and they help develop accredited programs too.
90 Plus Percent
In fact, more than 90 percent of victims who go through Hope for Justice’s restorative programs never return to trafficking—that’s the highest percentage among nonprofits battling modern-day slavery.
Restoring More Lives in Cambodia
The D. Gary Young, Young Living Foundation’s partnership with Hope for Justice will begin by helping them expand their quality educational and vocational training programs in Cambodia, so they can help more victims restore their lives. Not only is Cambodia a source of human trafficking, it also serves as a transit country for victims from Vietnam to Thailand.
Hope for Justice also drives long-term change throughout the world, including in the U.S., U.K., and Norway. The foundation is joining the fight to help put an end to what is a grave violation of human rights.
Penh Lenh Jewelry
The Foundation is also working with Hope for Justice to sell jewelry pieces that are handmade by some of the young women Hope for Justice has rescued in Cambodia. The inspiring Penh Lenh jewelry collection was available at the 2016 International Grand Convention and will be available at future Young Living events.
Penh Lenh, meaning "whole", is on a simple, yet bold mission to empower marginalized and at-risk young women in Cambodia to pursue their life goals through quality education, vocational training, and advanced career opportunities. Each piece represents the strength and beauty of the women creating them. Click below to learn more about Penh Lenh.
