Summary

Beauty for Freedom (BFF), exists to empower survivors of tracking through creative expression and skills training. Through our programming, BFF has empowered and supported 2000+ survivors of trafficking and at-risk youth in the United States, Cambodia, Ghana, Haiti, India and the Dominican Republic. Support our program as we expand with a job readiness program for survivors in the US and SE Asia which will include resume writing, image consulting and job interview prep for 15 survivors.

Challenge

Human Trafficking - The Issue There are an estimated 27 million adults and 13 million children around the world who are victims of human trafficking. Nearly 80% are victims of sex trafficking and 19% are victims of labor trafficking.

Solution

Rising unemployment leads to greater trafficking vulnerabilities and a high risk of re-trafficking. Self-esteem building through skills training is the perfect tools for supporting survivors of trafficking to experience positive growth in their lives. Survivors served at BFF express the desire for gainful employment but have very few opportunities. Job training can help survivors rebuild their lives while providing them with stability and putting them on the path to socio-economic independence.

Long-Term Impact

BFF's goal this year will be to graduate 15 participants from our job readiness program, broker internships and entry level jobs for all participants while creating a scholarship and stipend program which will cover the transportation and materials costs for all of our graduates. By providing opportunities for job readiness, mentorship and skills training, BFF will be creating the possibilities for successful internships and career path development while tackling recidivism.
