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

Love146 is an incredible organization doing some of the toughest work in regards to child trafficking. While IJM and other NGOs rescue young children out of sex trafficking, they bring the survivors to Love146 for long-term, holistic care that they themselves don't provide. Love146 is fighting the hardest battles on the forefront by implementing survivor care and prevention education programs. Few organizations, government agencies, or individuals take the time to fund or care about preventing trafficking and abuse from happening; Love146 does. If you are at all passionate about the issue, I would support Love146. They have offices in several countries and are growing to serve more and more children every day. I'm happy to support them as a donor and friend.

I never knew about modern day slavery until I heard about Love146 (they were a featured charity on Air1 Radio Station). Ever since I learned about Slavery (sex/labor/debt), I want nothing more then to help slavery and raise awareness. I love what Love146 is doing. God spoke to me though them.

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

... the work that they do. They help lots of people recover from slavery.

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

... do more to raise awareness. Many, many people I know do not know about Slavery. I think a TV commercial, or other marketing, would help raise awareness.
