Sanlaap NA is a great organization that is raising awareness within North America about victims of trafficking. Their board members and volunteers are very passionate and continue growing the organization. The organization provides full transparency as to where the donations are used. I hope this organization continues to grow and continue impacting change.

Sanlaap NA is unique in many ways but two reasons particularly come to mind. 1) As many reviewers have already mentioned, they provide full transparency to how their funds are used and utilize almost 100% towards building homes and education facilities for the women in need. 2) Sanlaap NA is unafraid to bring to light the brutalities these women face in their everyday lives. Without truly hearing their experiences, donors remain involved at a surface level. I think that in exposing and allowing these women to tell their stories without censoring the truth, the process of donating becomes an education tool for everyone involved.
