What We’re Doing For Freedom
FFI recognizes that exploitation is a multidimensional issue, and so we employ a multifaceted approach to combat the problem of oppression.
FFI values developing local capacity and God-given potential. We partner to create of safe homes, schools, and a community centre for at-risk children, as well as in teaching how children can be protected from sexual abuse. FFI also works to raise international awareness to stop the demand for sexual exploitation before it starts.
FFI is committed to protecting vulnerable children alongside local law enforcement, and so FFI helps run the Child Advocacy Center Phuket. We also meet victims of sexual exploitation in the midst of the brokenness around them in order to extend friendship, care, and hope, assisting with international repatriation when needed.
For Freedom International believes in empowering survivors of exploitation, and so we provide training and dignified vocational opportunities in the baking and salon industries, alongside counselling, discipleship, and courses in life skills.
