What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

An estimated one million children in India have been trafficked for commercial sexual exploitation. 80% are female. Extreme gender violence is also rampant with a child raped in India every 2.5 hours. Most of these victims have been abused emotionally, physically, sexually, and economically; tragically, only a tiny fraction are rescued. But even after rescue, the traumatic experience of severe abuse and exploitation can lead to multiple follow-on adversities including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, addiction, social isolation, school failure, poverty, violence, further sexual abuse and criminal behavior. Studies have shown that sex trafficking victims are often psychologically and emotionally disabled by their early 30s. Early intervention is critically important to restore them to mental and socioeconomic health, and to prevent this vulnerable population from being re-trafficked.

Charting impact

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

EmancipAction is an international, non-profit organization working to end child sex trafficking around the world. We aim to bring freedom, healing and justice to hundreds of thousands of children who have been sexually abused and exploited, while we build up the system to break down the business of sex slavery.

We are combing the globe to bring together the best thinkers and practitioners to test a groundbreaking approach to breaking the business of child sex trafficking. We lead focused projects that increase alignment and coordination among the government, NGO and private sectors, to create measurable, lasting and scalable impact.

EmancipAction works with and through a network of strong partners in the non-profit, public and private sectors to create significant, strategic and scalable change.

We work in a project format. We bring together a small group of key stakeholders from each sector to explore the data, establish joint goals, implement global best practices, test new initiatives and make strategic investments. We start small, measure for impact and scale what works.


We are combing the globe to bring together the best thinkers and practitioners to test a groundbreaking approach to breaking the business of sex trafficking.

We are not about building an organization, but rather, building up a system of interventions that will endure. We aim to prevent child sex trafficking in the future and keep our communities safe.

Millions of children around the globe are currently held captive for commercial sexual exploitation. We work with best in class partners to help find and release more children; to provide healing and hope for victims; and to empower victims with the skills and opportunities to build a reimagined life.

FIND AND RELEASE

Finding the children has become increasingly complex and challenging. With ever improving mobile communications, "johns" no longer need to visit a red light district to purchase illegal sex with an enslaved minor. He can have her delivered to the venue of his choice - and the girls can be held anywhere.

EmancipAction is working with new technologies and new approaches to to finding the victims so we can get ahead of the traffickers.

PROVIDE HEALING AND HOPE FOR SURVIVORS

Quality aftercare for survivors of sex trafficking is rare in many countries, oftentimes resulting in high rates of re-trafficking. The challenges of rehabilitation from this kind of deep, compound trauma are enormous.

Without very high levels of physical and psycho-social/spiritual care, the prognosis for rehabilitation is grim. Experience shows, however, that with appropriate and intensive individualized care, survivors can experience transformation. EmancipAction invests in building high quality emergency aftercare centers which have proven to have dramatic, positive implications for a survivors' long term rehabilitation.

EMPOWER VICTIMS WITH SKILLS AND OPPORTUNITIES

EmancipAction is working to support the development of customized educational and life skills training programs for survivors of sex trafficking. Partnering with some of the most forward thinking practitioners of 21st century education, EmancipAction is investing in building an educational program which leverages the best of technology and distance learning techniques to meet the unique needs of trafficking survivors.

EmancipAction also works with private sector companies to connect survivors with job skills training programs and internships to provide opportunities for a "reimagined" life.

EmancipAction works in both private and government residential care homes to build capacity among lay counselors to deliver trauma informed carefor severely abused kids. We do research to establish effective, scalable models of care that leverage lay counselors to deliver evidence-based modules on health promotion, problem solving, emotional regulation and distress tolerance. We invest in technologies, like our monitoring and evaluation Caregiver App, support scaled implementation. We focus on what we are good at and partner with other best in class organizations to round out our model of transformational care.
