Eradicating Sex Trafficking
An estimated 1.2 million children between the ages of 11 and 16, boys and girls alike, are trafficked each year. And although many often think sex trafficking happens only in places other than the US, it is happening right here at home.
Over 3 million people experience homeless each year. The working poor, single moms, the mentally ill and teens live in poverty and are part of the vast numbers of homeless in the world. Homelessness can be a catalyst for, and a result of, the growth of sex trafficking.
62 million girls are not in school. We support initiatives led by women that focus on investing in education for women and girls that lead to brighter futures, economic empowerment, independence and growth.
