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.
Target demographics: prostituted and sexually exploited minors
Geographic areas served: United States, Thailand, Cambodia, Philippines, India, Sri Lanka

I have to respectfully disagree with w_65_j's assessment that this is an inefficient organization. Love146 has achieved a multi-year Four Star rating with Charity Navigator, which simply doesn't happen at inefficient organizations. Also, the organization places a very high value on transparency, accountability, and outcome measurement. All of their financials, program proposals, and annual reports are easily discoverable on the website. After working for almost ten years in the non profit sector I can confidently say that Love146's level of transparency and accessibility is the exception rather than the norm, unfortunately.

As both a longtime donor to Love146 and an attorney specializing in non profit governance and management, I feel utterly confident investing in the work of Love146. I cary high expectations for quality outcomes, which they consistently meet.

In summary: great organization, great people, great work.

As a graduate student studying Nonprofit Organization Management I highly admire and recommend this organization. The people working there are working for considerably less than people performing the same level of work in the private sector. These individuals are committed to their goal of ending modern day slavery. They spend their money well, including administrative and fundraising costs. How is an organization to do their work without spending money in those two areas? They cannot. For an organization doing as much work as Love146 is doing with the size staff they are working with and in the area they are working is mind blowing.

How does this organization compare with others in the same sector?

Very Well
