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.
We bring rescue
We’ve rescued more than 49,000 people from slavery and other forms of oppression.
We help restore
Our aftercare programs have helped restore thousands of survivors to wellness.
We’ve helped local authorities arrest more than 3,800 suspected slave owners and other criminals.
We are helping justice systems to protect more than 150 million vulnerable people.
We’re working all around the world to free people trapped in slavery.
We don’t stop there. We protect the poor against brutal violence in the developing world:

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.
Rescue is not only possible. It's happening.
