goes to the most vulnerable & least protected to end human trafficking and all forms of modern-day oppression.

Our unique focus is the prevention of human trafficking from the countries of origin while educating and mobilizing the Body of Christ in the countries of destination and transit.
 

THE PROBLEM:

There are four primary areas of modern-day slavery into which children and adults are trafficked or sold:

THE SEX-SLAVE TRADE

CHILD SOLDIERS

FORCED MANUAL LABOR

ATT00108There are agricultural and manufacturing forced manual labor camps where men, women and children are forced to serve long hours in poor conditions with little to no wages.

PROFESSIONAL BEGGING

SI ExifThere is mafia-organized begging where women, men and children are forced into begging on the streets retaining none of what they collect. They are often forced to live in sewers, cellars or dark gutted apartments where many of them are crowded into a small room under lock and key with little to eat.

 

THE WORK:

Make Way Partners divides the work against human trafficking into two basic categories:

COUNTRIES OF ORIGIN

These are countries from which the victims are taken. They are usually economically unstable and often operating under the oppression of corrupt or indifferent governments. Eastern Europe and Africa are the fastest growing regions for exporting victims into slavery.

COUNTRIES OF DESTINATION

These are countries into which the victims are sold into slavery. These countries are usually much more economically stable in order to support the trafficking or they have a high level of sex tourism. Currently, the United States is the largest recipient of victims of human trafficking. Most of the victims brought into the U.S. are sold into the sex slave trade or smuggled in for forced manual labor.

 

THE POWER:

Make Way Partners looks to no other power than the hope of the Gospel. This hope is shared by Christians like you willing to be the incarnational presence of Christ in the world through prayer and financial support.
