Human trafficking is the fastest-growing crime in the world, generating more profit than McDonald's, PepsiCo, and Disney combined. We're on a mission to change that. Help us build a global movement that puts sexual exploitation out of business.

Purpose

Like an atlas, we build pathways that unite people and partners around the globe. For over a decade, we've chartered the course that connects people like you to mass impact: protecting the vulnerable, empowering survivors, and stopping trafficking before it has the chance to start.


Mission statement

Accelerate and resource the fight against sex trafficking and exploitation.

As a nonprofit, we are building a global movement uniting funders, adventurers, and everyday people with the best local organizations in the world. We specialize in finding and accelerating the most effective frontline initiatives and creating resources and tools to scale the fight against human trafficking.


Statement of faith

The work we do is informed and motivated by a deep faith in Jesus and a commitment to His teachings.

This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth. 1 John 3:16-18

We believe that all people are created in the image of God with inherent value. They are worthy of love and our best efforts to affirm that value. Our programs serve all people, from all backgrounds, without discrimination of any kind.

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8

We advocate for the vulnerable and exploited because we believe there is hope for a restored life and a better future.

"The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free" - Jesus, Luke 4:18
