Nearly everything we consume - clothing, the batteries in our cell phones, the fish we eat - has forced labor and exploitation hidden somewhere inside its production, with big repercussions on local communities around the world, and the environment. Not For Sale envisions and fights for a future without exploitation and forced labor, where healthy people and the planet can function together in harmony - in a world where no one is for sale. By meeting the highest standards established by Charity Navigator, we have attained the coveted 4-star rating - demonstrating our commitment to full transparency and allowing you to give with confidence.

In 2000, David Batstone discovered there was a human trafficking ring at a neighborhood restaurant, and began writing a book about human trafficking, called Not For Sale. In his research, he met a woman named Kru Nam in Northern Thailand, who was rescuing street children from exploitation (including forced labor and sex trafficking). Kru Nam and the children were living in an empty field, begging for food, with no means to build a house. Not For Sale started as an intention to raise enough money to build a house, and today it's a village for 150 children. We took this intention around the world - building shelters, schools, clean water sources and entrepreneurial platforms.
