Freedom is Worth the Fight

Since 2016, the Young Living Foundation has been committed to helping victims of abuse and survivors of labor and sexual exploitation. Modern slavery is a complex issue, and thus requires a multi-dimensional approach. We partner with programs that tackle prevention, rescue, recovery, reintegration, and policy reform—with the ultimate goal of enabling freedom, healing, and sustainable independence.

Slavery still exists.
Let's end it.

Your involvement has allowed us to increasingly build a world free from slavery where no human is bought or sold. Examples of forms of exploitation we are committed to help eradicate include: domestic servitude, forced labor, child abuse, sex trafficking, forced marriage, debt bondage, and forced street begging.

*Current numbers are from 2017 through June 2022. This number is dynamic and updated quarterly as we receive new information from our partners in the field.

“I would like to become an expert in social work. Most of all, I want to become a person who helps with matters relating to society. Each person has their own dream, and they need others to help them achieve it. Without help from others, I would not be who I am right now.”

Traffickers took advantage of her situation and sold her across the border. With your help, she was rescued and is now studying at a university.
