WHAT WE DO
Nazarene Compassionate Ministries projects around the world.
Global Anti-Trafficking Fund
About the project
Human trafficking is modern-day slavery — a system in which both children and adults are bought and sold through force, coercion, threats, deception, or abduction. Human trafficking is criminal enterprise that results in forced labor and sexual exploitation. It is a global problem that affects people from many backgrounds or situations. However, people from poor families are especially at risk because traffickers prey on those who are vulnerable.
The Church of the Nazarene has a presence in many countries where children and adults are vulnerable to trafficking. In these areas, NCM partners with local churches in anti-trafficking efforts that range from prevention and education to protection and rehabilitation. NCM’s strongest engagement with ending human trafficking is through prevention and providing economic and educational opportunities to lower the risk of poverty-induced trafficking.
Economic and educational opportunities lower people’s risk of being trafficked. Child Development Centers help children succeed in school and learn how precious they are to God, which in turn helps them see themselves as valued. Women’s self-help groups and skills training programs empower members to improve their household finances, which lessens their children's risk of being trafficked. Programs that focus on orphaned children bring children into families and keep them off the streets where they are vulnerable to abuse and “too good to be true” offers of employment elsewhere. Nazarene Compassionate Ministries also partners in a ministries that help survivors of trafficking by offering rehabilitative services and skills development.
By giving to the NCM Global Anti-Trafficking Fund, you are offering true freedom in the name of Christ.
