January 2016 Freedom Forum

Freedom Forum is a monthly visual round-up of insight into Freedom 4/24 and the fight against human trafficking.

3 Ways You Can Help Us Bring Freedom in 2016

We are so excited about the year ahead and the abundant opportunities it is already bringing as we work together to bring freedom and justice to girls and women around the world.

This year, we want YOU to experience our work in a new and personal way.

Here are 3 simple ways to engage in 2016:

#1: Experience Our Work From the Ground

This year, Freedom 4/24 is leading a trip to all three of our international partners in India, Uganda, and Thailand. These trips will connect team members with unforgettable experiences and relationships as they witness what is being done to fight sexual exploitation and trafficking in each country, as well as how the girls in each location are being rescued and restored.

  • India: In April, our team will connect with our partner, Freedom Firm, to host a camp for teenage survivors of exploitation and trafficking.
  • Uganda: In July, our team will spend time with the girls at Christine's House, who are finding freedom and restoration at this safe house.
  • Thailand: In December,the team will help throw Christmas parties for girls and women in the red light districts so they may learn about the permanent freedom offered at Beginnings, our partner in Bangkok.
Our India trip is now full but limited spots are open for Uganda and Thailand. To apply for a trip, email Emily@Freedom424.org.

#2: Use Creativity to Fundraise

The women you see in this photo are beaming as they graduate from Christine's House, our safe house in Uganda. This would not be possible without fundraising! Last semester, Liberty Christian Academy partnered with us to support Christine's House and raised more than $45,000! To accomplish this, students challenged each other, gave up Christmas presents, and more.

Fundraisers don't need to be BIG! Simply use your creativity or resources to help raise awareness and funds in any amount. Every dollar counts. Give your birthday or your graduation. Go without makeup. Run a race. Start today by emailing Emily@freedom424.org to set up your fundraiser!

#3: Run or Ride for Freedom

Along with the opportunity to fundraise, Run 4 Their Lives and Ride 4 Freedom give anyone a chance to get a little exercise while helping to raise awareness and funds for Freedom 4/24 and our domestic and international partners. We are offering these events all over the country, so sign up for one near you at Freedom424.org.
