You are a faith-based organisation. What does that mean? arrow-simple-bottom

We are inspired by God’s call to love all people and to seek justice. We serve all people, without regard to religion or any other factor, and seek to work alongside all people of good will.

IJM’s staff members are Christians from a variety of traditions who are motivated by the Bible’s call to “rescue the oppressed, defend the orphan, plead for the widow.” We find strength and encouragement in sharing a spiritual life together.

IJM staff are available for media interviews, but due to high demand, we are generally unable to provide interviews for student research projects or general information about the work.

Violent abuses like rape, trafficking, slavery, land theft and police brutality have an immediate and significant impact on victims. That’s why each of our aftercare services is unique, and meets different needs of the children, women and men we serve. In addition to strengthening local social services to empower survivors even when IJM isn’t on the scene, IJM social workers and our partners help individual survivors pursue their goals for restoration. This process includes elements like:

  • Immediate crisis care
  • Connecting survivors to a place of stability
  • Ongoing counseling
  • Support throughout the legal process
  • Skills training and education

As our social workers walk with survivors on their journey to safety and stability, we carefully assess how they are progressing. Our goal is to see survivors “restored”—meaning that they can function in society with a low vulnerability to being victimized again.

We have developed a validated tool, the Assessment of Survivor Outcomes (ASO) tool, that aftercare staff use to generate a baseline assessment of a survivor’s vulnerabilities and strengths, set goals with survivors for their care plan, and then measure a survivor’s progress in key areas of restoration.

IJM staff partner with local authorities to protect the poor from violence in 17 communities throughout the developing world. Our teams work in Cambodia, the Philippines, Thailand, Ghana, Kenya, Uganda, the Dominican Republic, Bolivia, Guatemala and South Asia.

IJM is headquartered in Washington, DC, and we have international advancement offices in the U.K.CanadaGermanyAustralia and the Netherlands.

IJM investigators, lawyers and social workers intervene in individual cases of abuse in partnership with state and local authorities in the countries in which they work. We work together to rescue victims, restrain criminals from hurting others, and restore survivors to safety and strength. Working in partnership with government authorities is the best long-term strategy to ensure that the poor are protected from violence.

IJM’s “collaborative casework” is this work directly with local authorities, case by case. It’s a critical part of our Justice System Transformation model.

Collaborative casework meets the most urgent needs of victims of violence, allows for the opportunity to provide hands-on training and mentoring to government partners, and provides an opportunity for our teams to discover the specific gaps in a justice system that leave the poor most vulnerable to violence.

Our work to protect the poor from violence is built on partnership. It’s a vision that is impossible to achieve alone.

IJM is a non-partisan, non-governmental, 501(c)3 organisation. We operate with governmental approval and acknowledgement, and we depend on the partnership of local government and NGO partners.

IJM’s efforts to fight injustice are primarily limited by its financial resources. However, in certain countries, government or legal structures do not currently make IJM’s casework methods feasible. IJM’s casework model of repairing broken justice systems does not work in the absence of any justice system—this prevents IJM from being most effective in war zones, for example. However, there are many other excellent NGOs that do courageous and valuable work in such situation

IJM does not take cases in Australia. We have a very specific focus on partnering with local governments in the developing world to make under-functioning public justice systems work for the poor.

Though injustice certainly exists in Australia, citizens (and citizens of other countries in the developed world) benefit from a mature legal system that generally provides effective redress for abuse. This is not the case for IJM’s clients in the developing world.
