Impact statement

The work of Love146 focused on four areas during the 2014-2015 fiscal year: Survivor Care, Prevention Education, Professional Training and Empowering Movement. Our Survivor Care programs served 79 children through Love146's aftercare facilities, 16 of whom were reintegrated this year. We supported five youth in ongoing support services, and 43 youth received rapid-response one-time meetings. Within the Prevention Education, Love146 developed a multi-level prevention education curriculum, Not a #Number, designed to teach youth how to protect themselves from human trafficking and exploitation. Our curriculum reached 3922 youth. An additional 592 professionals and community members received prevention education training. Through our Professional Training program, we certified 41 professionals to facilitate Not a #Number, and trained 525 professionals in the UK on trafficking, issues in working with trafficked youth, including the legal framework associated with trafficked youth. Finally, through the Empowering Movement, Love146 directly impacted 330 individuals (trafficked or highly at risk of being trafficked) through housing support, street outreach, and community outreach.

Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Self-reported by organization

  1. What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
    Love146's three-year strategy (FYs 2015-2017) calls for scaling, deepening, and sustaining our impact to combat child trafficking and exploitation, and to restore survivors with excellence. We aim to scale our impact by reaching every child in every US school to be reached with prevention education. To facilitate scaling, our goal is to see 5,000 implementations in the next three years, impacting over 100,000 children. We aim to deepen our impact in our Survivor Care programs in the US, the Philippines, and the UK. Our goal is to serve from 37 to 45 children in the US and the Philippines. In the UK, we will influence changes in survivor care quality at a local and national level through our trainings and support of foster carers, social workers, and trafficked children. Finally, we will sustain our impact by diversifying income.
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    Scaling: Scaling will happen through our national curriculum, Not a #Number. Love146 will conduct Professional Training of curriculum implementers and Professional Training of Trainers. We will be supported by a state-of-the-web-based metrics and fidelity tracking system. Implementation of Not a #Number will be funded by curriculum/training revenue and targeted grants and organizationally fueled by supporters around the US.

    Deepening: Deepening our programmatic impact will be seen in the US as we serve trafficked youth with Love146 specialized case managers. In the Philippines, we will serve trafficked children in our residential homes and throughout the reintegration process. Specialized care for trafficked children. For those who provide specialized care for trafficked children in the UK, we will increase our trainings to reach five localities within foster agencies, thus improving standards and quality of care for trafficked children at the local and national levels. We will continue our support of trafficked children by working directly with them and their social workers.

    Sustaining: Sustaining our impact will be accomplished through the continued refinement of program plans, the creation of new development plans, and the increase of other income streams.
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    Love146 is fully capable of fulfilling the objectives of the above strategy, given sufficient resources to hire needed staff who will either provide direct services for programmatic implementation or indirect support of our programs specifically and the organization overall.
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    Love146 will continue to monitor and evaluate its goals and objectives on a quarterly and annual basis. Our progress or lack of progress will inform any adjustments that need to be made in our programmatic and organizational / development efforts.
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    Love146 continues to conduct professional trainings Not a #Number facilitators. Love146 is currently working on the development of the Professional Training for Trainers curriculum. While Love146 continues to offer direct services to trafficked children and professional training to those who work with trafficked children, we have not brought in sufficient resources to date to grow beyond our current capacity.
