“People want to help.
Many people would offer to help, one way or the other, but don’t know how. Our philosophy is to work hard, keep it simple and pure, and people will want to help us.” – Patrick Atkinson
By learning about the dynamics of contemporary slavery, YOU are now becoming part of the solution. Take steps to educate yourself and your family and to keep yourself and family safe:
Prevent Human Trafficking –
Now it is time for YOU to raise awareness with your friends, community groups and your school.
Teach others about the prevalence of contemporary slavery in our global world as well as in our home communities.
Keep your communication with your family, friends and community open and accepting.
Just as you care for your children, encourage others to care for their children as well, and be aware of the possibility that there could be problems in your community.
Invite a Human Trafficking speaker from the “Institute for Trafficked, Exploited & Missing Persons” to address your group.
View modern day victims of human slavery for what they are: unwillingly forced, exploited and tortured men, women, and children in need of immediate help, and not criminals, hustlers, or deviates.
Boy… Girl… Man… Woman… Infant… Elderly…
Trafficked persons can be of any socio-economic status and nationality. Human trafficking exists in every state and major city in the U.S. No community is “immune” from human traficking.
Report and Prosecute –
The Institute for Trafficked, Exploited & Missing Persons (ITEMP) is a borderless sub-program of The GOD’S CHILD Project, a non-denominational, non-political international charity.
ITEMP operates in conjunction with national governments and international law enforcement agencies to prevent, interdict, rescue, and recover victims of human trafficking.
It can take only a moment to destroy a life, but it can take years to put it back together again. ITEMP’s greatest gift to the victims of modern day slavery is the help they need to put their lives back together again. This is the long, hard slog, but it is the area ITEMP is best at.
Please consider supporting ITEMP’s mission and the GOD’S CHILD Project as a volunteer, advocate, and/or as a donor.
