Have you ever wondered just how Free the Slaves helps thousands of people escape bondage each year? Well, now you can read the step-by-step procedures we follow for leading communities from slavery to freedom.
Our “Community Based Model for Fighting Slavery” is available online.
The model details the four-phase approach Free the Slaves uses to free slaves and change the conditions that allow slavery to persist. We focus on identifying and supporting at-risk communities so they acquire intellectual, organizational, legal, political and physical assets that reduce their vulnerability to slavery and liberate those in slavery.
Our basic approach is to create these assets to offset the vulnerabilities that make people easy prey for traffickers. We educate about rights and risks, organize community groups against slavery, strengthen household security, liberate those in slavery and increase the costs and risks to perpetrators. The model also explains how we monitor our activities and evaluate their effect.
The anti-slavery movement is at an important crossroads, where detailed action plans and rigorous assessments of our effectiveness are vital to showing the world that slavery can be overcome. Free the Slaves is helping lead the way.
