What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

There are more humans enslaved in the world than at any other time in history. 45.8 million people are affected by modern slavery and exploitation around the world. That’s more people than the entire population of California, Canada, or Argentina. Forced labor and human trafficking generates $150 billion in profits annually worldwide. That’s as much money as the combined yearly revenues of Google, Microsoft, Apple, and JP Morgan Chase. Human Trafficking is the third most lucrative crime on earth, surpassed only by counterfeiting and drug trafficking. (source) Of the $150 billion in profits, $99 billion comes from commercial sexual exploitation, and $51 billion comes from forced economic exploitation (domestic work, agriculture, and other economic activities). Women make up 51% of all persons affected by modern slavery, men 21%, girls 20%, and boys 8%. Over 12 million children are affected by trafficking. 71% of those affected by human trafficking are female.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Peru

In 2010 Not For Sale started working with an indigenous association, AFIMAD, which represents 77 communities (150,000 people) in the Peruvian Amazon to co-create community based solutions to fight human trafficking in the region. Not For Sale’s approach is holistic: focusing on the intersection of people and planet to utilize natural Amazonian resources to create global products, local jobs, reduce poverty, and increase access to social and economic opportunities.

Population(s) Served
Indigenous people

In the Netherlands, Not For Sale brings new opportunities to rebuild the future of survivors through professional culinary training, and provides nutritious meals to women working behind the windows in the city's Red Light District. In doing so, Not For Sale gathers valuable data on vulnerable areas of Eastern Europe, to creates solutions that address the origins of human trafficking for the most affected communities.

Population(s) Served
Females
Sex workers

In Romania, Not For Sale supports the work of partner, Mariana, to protect, rehabilitate and repatriate survivors of trafficking. The NFS Romania farm offers individuals in recovery opportunities for education, life skill training and new employment, to restore dignity and help re-build the future of those who have been exploited.

Population(s) Served
At-risk youth
Economically disadvantaged, low-income, and poor people

Not For Sale Thailand is the original Not For Sale project. In fact, Not For Sale was inspired to launch after Dave met and interviewed Kru Nam while writing the Not For Sale book. He committed to raising enough funds to help her build one home for the 27 kids she was looking after in 2006. A month later he was in South Africa, where Mark was living at the time, and they began to talk about starting an organization with the launch of the book in Feb 2007. They did! Now there is a village in northern Thailand that can house up to 100 children year round. Not For Sale helps support the intensive year round support of the kids - employing a team to look after the children. Increasingly however Not For Sale’s funding will be used to send kids to school and pay for boarding school and university fees. Most of the kids are from the Ahka Hill Tribe communities. + The Thai National Government named Not For Sale Thailand a "model program" for the border regions of the country. The primary way Not For Sale model empowerment is through the education of stateless children. Two stateless young adults from our program have graduated from university -- the first two stateless people in Thai history(!). Seven more are currently enrolled in university, while 45 children are attending top boarding schools with the goal of attending university in the next two years. We also have built an entire village for kids near the border of Thailand, Laos and Myanmar. This village houses between 75 and 100 kids year-round. All of the kids attend local schools -- something that was withheld from them until Not For Sale Thailand stepped in on their behalf.

Population(s) Served
At-risk youth
Immigrants, newcomers, refugees

Where we work

Charting impact

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

Not For Sale is an international nonprofit fighting human trafficking and modern-day slavery. Through directly helping vulnerable people, we grow self-sustaining social projects and purpose-driven business to end exploitation and forced labor. These enterprises create opportunities, and return revenue to those who need it most. Not For Sale is firmly focused on creating tools that engage and empower business, government and consumers in order to incubate and grow social enterprises to benefit enslaved and vulnerable communities.

Using business creation, supply chain evaluation and aftercare aid around the globe. By creating enterprise for vulnerable communities, offering social services to survivors and those at-risk to human trafficking, and evaluating the use of forced labor in mainstream supply chains, Not For Sale works to make sure no one is for sale.<br/><br/>International Projects: Our first rehabilitation center in Thailand grew to five additional social projects: Peru, the Netherlands, India, South Africa, and Romania. In all six projects, we work to provide safety and stability services to survivors while targeting the root causes of exploitation by providing skills training, education, and job opportunities.<br/><br/>Social Enterprises: To address economic vulnerability in highly enslaved communities, Not For Sale creates mass-market product opportunities to generate jobs and provide skills trainings for at-risk individuals and survivors in need of a sustainable income.<br/><br/>Supply chain evaluations: We assess the role of specific brands in the global rise of forced-labor, offer resources to companies looking to improve their supply chains, and inform consumers of the social impact behind their purchases by publishing easily-accessible information

To date, Not For Sale has supported more than 6,050 men, women, and children worldwide out of situations of exploitation, of whom approximately 68% are female and 79% are below the age of 25. Approximately one third of survivors assisted are individuals rescued from the sex trade, while others are rescued from forced begging and bonded labor. Not For Sale stops human trafficking in its tracks by disrupting the cycle of exploitation and using local markets to empower the most vulnerable communities. Not For Sale is the only anti-human trafficking organization that is harnessing the power of business to fight the root cause of modern slavery.
