    Juan's Story
    By - Haley Reynolds - Volunteer
    It is often hard to imagine the atrocities that victims of human trafficking experience, especially when those victims are children. This case is no different.  We can’t use his real name, so we’ll just call him Juan.  Juan lived on a small farm in a cattle ranching community of Guatemala.  When...

    By - Nathan L. Powell - ITEMP Director of Operations

    Restoring Hope to Those Who Need It Most
    By - Nathan Powell - ITEMP Director of Operations
    This beautiful smile belongs to Claudia, a diffident yet cheerful young woman who maintains this smile despite having endured more hardship in her fourteen years than most have in their lifetime. A mother’s love is something that most of us take for granted, but Claudia never had the opportunity to assume a blessing...

    Dreams born in a garbage dump
    By - Megan Kadrmas - Director of Benefactor Services
    She sat on the rotting garbage as if she were a queen seated regally on top of a gold-gilded throne.  She knew this place, she said, and she has had dreams here.  Maria Paula, the young queen of this smoky domain, is all of 10 years old.  Her voice is deep from constantly breathing the smoke and toxic fumes...

    New Year's Resolution Time!
    By - Claire San Filippo - Operations Director
    The end of the year is the perfect moment to reflect on the work that has been carried out during the year. Despite our hard work, 2.5 million people are being trafficked right now.

    Education, a Priceless Gift
    By - Claire San Filippo - Operations Director
    There are gifts you remember. This year, Ana will remember hers. And she’ll remember us. Because to Ana, ITEMP is the closest thing to Santa Claus she has ever experienced. Better than she dreamed of, she says. And if there is one thing—probably the only thing—that Ana has never lacked, it’s dreams....

    Promises to Carlitos
    By - Megan Kadrmas - Communications Coordinator

He was only 7 years old but had already lived a lifetime of trauma and abuse. Carlitos was sold by his desperate mother to a man who did unspeakable things to him. He was placed in a loving foster...

    On Human Rights Day, Do What's Right!
    By - Claire San Filippo - Operations Director
    Young women and girls forced into prostitution? Invisible. Men forced to do dangerous and tiring work for little or no reward? Invisible.  Children worked to exhaustion and vulnerable to abuse? Invisible.  Here in Guatemala, ITEMP works directly with victims of human trafficking. However, we also try to raise...

    Have you ever been to a garbage dump? 9-year-old Mario most certainly has. Before we rescued him, Mario spent most of his time working in one.

    FRESH START FOR BROKEN LIVES
    By - Zuzana Jankechova - ITEMP Support
    Help us break the bitter chains of slavery and exploitation! When a group of tourists brought 7-year-old Noemi into our clinic on the outskirts of Antigua, Guatemala, she was dirty, wearing rags, and way too small for her age. Her little face was twisted in pain, but she wasn’t crying like most children would be. In...
