Some institutions and organizations that are working to combat human trafficking include:
One success story in the fight against human trafficking is the work of International Justice Mission (IJM). IJM is a non-profit organization that works to rescue victims of slavery and human trafficking, bring perpetrators to justice, and restore survivors to safety and dignity. In one case, IJM worked with local authorities in the Philippines to rescue 16 young girls who were being exploited in a cybersex trafficking ring. The girls were rescued and the perpetrators were arrested and charged with trafficking-related crimes. Following the rescue, IJM provided the girls with medical and trauma care, legal assistance, and long-term aftercare services to help them rebuild their lives. Thanks to the efforts of IJM and its partners, these 16 girls were able to escape a life of exploitation and abuse and have a chance at a brighter future.
