Our foundation has completed two projects with Free the Slaves (Nepal and Ghana), and we spent a week reviewing their work in Nepal. Their particular strength is to find local groups that are finding effective ways to fight slavery and empower those groups. Extremely efficient method. They work on all facets of the problem -- community education / prevention, liberation, rehabilitation, public policy, reintegration, ... We remain enthusiastic donors from our personal funds.

I am a VA HS Senior. I completed a senior project of which Free the Slaves was the beneficiary. For my project, I hosted For“Bid”: An Auction to Stop Human Trafficking. This project not only allowed me to collect donations, but I got to directly inform over 200 people of human trafficking. In the process of completing my project, I was in contact with Mr. Lee McClure of Free the Slaves. Without his guidance and assistance, I would not have been able to complete my project. And without the work of Kevin Bales, co-founder of Free the Slaves, I would not have been able to pass my senior thesis.

Review from Guidestar

I found out about this organisation by listening to a TED talk given by its founder. He is a university professor who researched the subject of slavery in the 21st century. He discovered that ALL countries in our world have slaves (yes S-L-A-V-E-S, defined as people forced to work by threat of violence and who earn barley enough to survive) and that it can cost very little to free a slave (it costs more in some countries)! His goal is a world without any slaves.
This organization work is based on these simple rules: freeing a slave means finding him a different occupation in life & never reward the slave owner by buying the slave from him. The latter means that the workers and volunteers risk their lives to free slaves.
They have a very detailed website so check it out, I am proud to be one of their donors.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I, fortunately, am not a slave so I did not experience their work 1st hand.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Lobby governments & the filthy rich to get involved!!! Since they have a fixed number (10 billion I think) for freeing all the slaves in the world they should work to get that money.
