What we aim to solve New!

Human trafficking as violence against girls and women have been called the greatest injustices of all time. The debasing view of girls in the developing world has left us void of 200 million murdered girls over the past decade, driving human trafficking. Of the 45 million slaves in the world, we now see that 99% of all sex slaves are female, with a disturbing trend toward victimizing younger girls from impoverished families. She Is Safe prevents, rescues and restores women and girls from abuse and slavery in the highest-risk communities across the world, equipping them to build lives of freedom and faith for a strong future.

Charting Impact

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

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

Every at-risk girl safe, free and equipped. Our goal is that every high-risk girl would be free from slavery and equipped to become the woman God created her to be, making their contributions to shape the mindset of the next generation of boys and girls about the dignity and value of every person.

We research to identify communities where the degree of risk for the sale of girls is extreme, and identify potential local partner NGOs and churches in those places to:

Prevent – With indigenous teams in high-risk communities, we provide income-generating alternatives to the practice of selling girls - along with a transforming view of every person as created in God's image.

Rescue – In red-light districts, garbage dumps, refugee camps, border towns and conflict zones, our Christ-centered local co-workers offer pathways to freedom into safe locations.

Restore – Rescued girls are brought to restoration homes for healing, new life and to gain skills that equip them to create lives of dignity and purpose.

From our years of building successful, replicable programs, She Is Safe now sees approximately 15,000 girls and women prevented, rescued and restored each year in India, Indonesia, Lebanon, Mali, Myanmar, Nepal and South Sudan by partnering with local churches and NGOs. The training and support of indigenous women enables us to multiply a workforce and our impact year by year.

In the U.S., we raise awareness and advocates to mobilize an informed base of thousands of supporters, volunteers, praying friends and workers. Our staff of 20 members includes leaders with decades of experience in international development, as well as country directors and sector specialists. Executive Vice President, Daniel Rickett, Ph.D. is a recognized leader/author on making cross-cultural partnerships successful at achieve agreed upon goals.

Our rigorous systems of setting and tracking benchmarks equips our international team to track progress of our work in twelve month increments. From these evaluations, we are able to gain lessons, make important adjustments, report to donors, and determine the needed additional resources to expand our reach and impact.

Our replicable, self-sustaining signature program, She Is Safe Transformation Groups, serve about 5,000 women in four countries. The follow-up course on Micro-enterprise Development helps to make their micro-businesses successful. 60,000 children, their teachers and parents, have gained 10 Tips to Safety, along with a Hotline for Help, school supplies and underthings for girls. 660 Syrian refugee girls meet weekly with our co-workers, the girls focus on income generating skills, rather than being forced into child marriages. Since 80% of slaves are female, and most are from and remain in the developing world, we need to continue to grow our capabilities in these areas to equip at least twice as many girls and women each year. If we are to dramatically reduce slavery and shine the light of the love of Christ, we need to exponentially expand our work for girls in the highest-risk communities.
