South East Asia Facts:

It’s estimated that 225,000 women and children are trafficked annually in SE Asia3.

In SE Asia we support multiple teams in multiple countries, providing the training and resources for agencies to be properly educated and equipped. These teams work tirelessly to rescue women and children who have been trafficked.

Hundreds of young women, teens and children have been rescued due to the efforts of JOY and our partners in SE Asia.

We also financially support Safe Houses, restoration services and prevention programs. We believe that a holistic approach must be taken with victims of human trafficking, therefore we focus on physical, mental, spiritual and emotional healing. After exhaustive research and investigations, we provide approved partner organizations the necessary funds to educate these women and children, both boys and girls, in primary school and continuing education courses. JOY now sponsors a number of rescued girls and young women pursuing their primary and college degrees, which will break the cycle of poverty in their lives, equipping them to be valuable contributors to society. If you would like to donate to the education fund, click here.

you are worth

North America Facts:

Experts estimate at least 100,000 American juveniles are victimized through forced prostitution in America each year4. In 2014, an estimated 1 out of 6 endangered runaways reported to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children were likely child sex trafficking victims.5 Unfortunately, nationwide there are less than 200 beds in restoration homes specifically designed for victims of sex trafficking. JOY International is currently raising the necessary funds to fulfill their vision to build a Safe Village in the US that would house an additional 100+ girls. The Safe Village would be fully equipped with a devoted and well-trained staff including counselors and educators, as well as work training programs to equip the girls to integrate back into society to become productive citizens within their communities.

If you want to invest in this project and see the Safe Village happen, you can donate here:
