What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Financial instability leaves survivors of human trafficking and gender-based violence vulnerable to further abuse and exploitation. Economic empowerment services leading to real security for survivors is often lacking in other anti-trafficking programs. Our program in the Philippines is a direct response to feedback from survivors themselves – who expressed their desire for safe employment that helps them care for their own needs and those of their families. We fill a gap in the sector by providing economic empowerment services that support survivors in achieving greater financial security while being respectful and responsive to the unique needs of people who have experienced violence.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Career Counseling

Career counselors begin working with clients during the initial job readiness training and support clients throughout their entire journey in the program. Career counselors help clients discover their skills and passions, explore career options, refine their personalized visions, and create focused plans for how to achieve their goals. Our career counseling team encourages and coaches clients throughout the process of implementing their career plans, providing consistent emotional support throughout the process. We tailor our services to ensure that survivors of violence and exploitation have the support they need to achieve their goals.

All clients participate in a foundational job readiness training with two key components: career goal development and workplace skills building. Our career counselors work with clients to understand their vocational goals, aptitudes, and interests and support them in developing individualized plans to achieve their own goals. We also provide training on transferable workplace skills – such as communication, conflict resolution, and problem solving. We base our training on research conducted with employers in the local community to ensure that our clients are positioned for success.

Access to further education is often required for many of our clients to achieve their career goals. We give a variety of educational scholarships – including vocational, high school, and college scholarships. We provide academic tutoring for our clients studying toward their high-school equivalency exam, helping them earn their high school diploma. We also offer tutoring for clients in communication skills, English, Filipino, Math, and Science.

We provide short-term, part-time employment for some of our clients while they are working toward their career goals. This employment allows our clients to gain valuable work experience and receive career mentorship in a supportive workplace environment. Additionally, this employment provides much-needed income to cover living expenses for our most vulnerable clients while they are in school. Employment in our work immersion program is also available for our clients in emergency situations.

Education and skills training alone does not guarantee career success – access to the right networks is also needed. We conduct outreach to a wide range of employers in the local community and research hiring needs in industries of interest to our clients. We make connections between our clients and prospective employers, referring clients for jobs in their vocations of choice. We mentor clients in applying and interviewing for jobs, providing support in areas such as resume building and interview preparation.

Charting impact

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

We help survivors get safe, dignifying work that provides greater financial security.

Most economic empowerment programs for survivors of violence and exploitation, especially human trafficking survivors, focus on short-term, low-wage (and often low-dignity) jobs that leave them vulnerable further violence. In our program in the Philippines, we listen to survivors’ voices and support survivors in achieving their own goals. We understand the vulnerabilities and experiences of survivors of violence and exploitation and adapt our programs to their unique needs to help them stay safe.
