Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

In 2018, the Department of Justice in concert with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) reported 23,500 endangered runaways in the United States and that 1 in 7 of them, a total of over 3,300 children, were likely victims of child sex trafficking. Nationwide, there were more than 424,000 missing children reported to the FBI in 2018. Extrapolating from the cases worked by the NCMEC, we estimate that over 60,000 children are likely victims of child sex trafficking in the United States each year. Most of these children are native US citizens that were recruited via social media from lower- and middle-class families. If nothing changes, these children will be trapped in an endless cycle of exploitation and violence; however, if we can educate children to recognize human trafficking solicitation then they can protect themselves.

Charting impact

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

Saving Jane empowers survivors of all forms of modern day slavery and human trafficking to live the life that they want to live.

Saving Jane is committed to ending all forms of these crimes through raising of the public’s awareness, education, the transformation of lives of impacted individuals, and the creation of systems, technology and policies to protect and support impacted individuals or prevent the formation of social conditions conducive to trafficking.

In 2022, Saving Jane will educate 1,000,000 parents and children about how to avoid having being groomed into a trafficking situation.

Saving Jane has partnered with a major educational software company to provide an app that educates teachers and parents about the signs and methods that traffickers use to groom children to attract them to sex trafficking scenarios.

Parents will have a special version of the curriculum that will teach them how to look for the signs that their children are being groomed and children learn how to recognize the grooming activities and let a trusted adult know about them.

In addition, Saving Jane uses our Abolitionista! comic book workshop program and curriculum to educate at risk children directly both online and in person in partnership with public schools and other NGOs such as the Girl Scouts.

Our team consists of multiple experts in human trafficking and education, the author of Abolitionista! - Thomas Estler, and a team of committed volunteers dedicated to the prevention of trafficking of children.

For 2022, the Abolitionista! children's workshop program has been embedded into a learning management system to be delivered electronically to classrooms without the need for a live workshop coordinator. This new method will allow us to reach hundreds of schools and thousands of classrooms starting with summer school 2022. The workshops are aimed at ages 10 through 18, covering grades 4 through 12.

Saving Jane has been granted a vendor license for the New York City Department of Education, granting access to 1822 schools each having a discretionary budget capable of supporting up to 16 workshops per school of up to 30 children each, for a total annual capacity of over 874K children - over two thirds of the nearly 1.2M NYC public school students.

In addition, Saving Jane is working with other charities who have relationships with other schools and school districts in the State of Florida, where Human Trafficking Education is mandated by state law.

For parents and teachers, Saving Jane has developed the Human Trafficking 101 training course derived from licensed coursework developed by Florida State University. The course is distributed on the 1Huddle training platform, who has donated their software to support Saving Jane's mission. The platform is scalable to millions of users and is made available to the public at no cost.

In 2019, Saving Jane performed over a dozen workshops and educated hundred of children with our Abolitionista! comic book curriculum.

In 2021, the workshop program was fully adapted to be delivered online via Zoom to children who were not necessarily in a classroom environment and further developed into a learning management system for distribution without a live workshop coordinator. In addition, the coursework from FSU was developed into a app based program for use by the general public to provide human trafficking education to parents and teachers.
