Mission:

The trafficking and rape of children for profit is one of the darkest stories on the planet. This physical, mental and emotional trauma leaves children broken and scarred for life. Interventions for these children are critical to their survival. This is why Love146 exists. Love146 works toward the abolition of child sex trafficking and exploitation through aftercare, prevention and advocacy. Love146 trains aftercare workers, multiplies safehomes, aids socioeconomic development programs in high risk communities and provides a voice for these victims of modern-day slavery. Founded in 2002 (as Justice for Children Intl.), Love146 is a registered public charity. Love146 is a 501c3 non-profit organization.

Results:

Philippines Prevention Work Update Our prevention partner in the Philippines has been working with us on an educational animated video, “Red Leaves Falling,” for at-risk children and communities. The project is going well, and the studio hopes to be 90% finished with the video by the end of the year. Once the video is completed, which we expect in the first quarter of the new year, it will be shown in the Phillipines to children, teenagers, and adults in schools and villages. It may even be translated to be shown in other countries as well.  Philippines Safehome Update Our Love146 safehome project in the Phillipines is making way! The opening for the Pink Home, part of our aftercare project in the Phillipines,has been postponed until the new year. We expect to open sometime in January as a transitional home for girls before entering the long term shelter. As we are anticipating the Pink Home opening, we have hired an architect and put a deposit on the land for the long term shelter as well. Cambodia Prevention Work Update Our partner organization in Cambodia shares an update about the advocacy work they are doing in the region of Banteay Maenchey. This province borders Thailand in the Northwest corner of Cambodia, and = because of its high risk for trafficking, regular training sessions are held for the community to raise awareness about the issues of trafficking and sexual abuse. Our partners have recently been able to identify five traffickers operating in the area and has provided information for their arrests.

The round home, love146's safe home for survivors of trafficking and exploitation in the philippines, is uniquely built and designed to facilitate the restoration and holistic health of every child entering its doors. The approach to running the home is attuned to the needs of the exploited and traumatized child, which include both the needs of ordinary children as well as children who have been wounded in many ways, lack hope, are broken, lack opportunities and self-worth. Love146 journeys with these survivors, aiming for a holistic reintegration, providing them with continued livelihood, educational, and therapeutic assistance after returning to their communities.

the love146 us prevention education program provides education and resources to help protect and empower at-risk and exploited youth in connecticut, maryland and texas. Through three levels of programing - prevention 101, tell your friends and my life my choice - love146 teaches youth in schools, group homes and other community settings to recognize common recruitment tactics, signs of exploitation and where they can receive help.

adults who work with children are crucial in the fight to end trafficking. In asia, through our certificate training in aftercare program (ctpa), love146 conducts intensive trainings that empower grassroots caregivers with the knowledge and skills necessary to provide children the kind of specialized care, which is important to the restoration of survivors. In the united states, love146 also provides targeted, comprehensive trainings for adults in contact with at-risk children to equip them to identify and prevent the commercial sexual exploitation of children and to intervene appropriately should victims be identified.

love146 seeks to rise up and equip new abolitionists as well as give greater momentum to effective grassroots efforts. Through our asia capacity building program, love146 works to decrease the incidence of child sexual exploitation by building capacity in local organizations/individuals through training, mentoring, organizational development and academic support, research and financial support. Through our task force program, love146 empowers groups of volunteers to engage in the abolition movement and become activists for local and international efforts to end child trafficking.
