Every day, countless people are sold into slavery, as slave owners make a profit off their misery.

International Justice Mission is a global organisation with a plan to eliminate the slave trade everywhere.

Strengthen justice systems

Slavery still exists because traffickers can freely exploit people. We provide training, mentoring and support to local law enforcement and community leaders to stop the cycle of violence and protect people from ever experiencing abuse.

We’ve seen slavery reduced by up to 86% in places we’ve worked.

Over 85,000 people have been brought to safety from slavery and violence.

Our proven Justice System Transformation model

Think of the justice system as a pipeline. In broken systems the poor are not safe. The UN estimates that nearly 4 billion people live outside of the protection of the law. Many justice systems are broken, corrupt, under-resourced, and overworked.
