Our model is to use prevention, rescue, and aftercare for victims of human trafficking.
Human trafficking are global and widespread crimes that use women and children for profit by means of sexual exploitation, forced and bonded labour, domestic servitude, any form of slavery and removal of organs. Exploitation in the United States and other countries takes a variety of forms, but most commonly forced labour, sexual exploitation, domestic servitude, and forced criminal activity. The organized networks or individuals behind these lucrative crimes take advantage of people who are vulnerable, desperate or simply seeking a better life. The Linda Hoffman Foundation strives for the elimination of these crimes through the dismantling of the criminal enterprises that trade in people and the conviction of the main preparators. Ultimately, our work is in supporting task forces, law enforcement, and trained experts who have dedicated their lives to human trafficking rescue operations, in addition to providing education, aftercare, and finances for victims who have suffered such crimes against humanity.
When Fear strikes, do not be afraid. When evil seems to prevail, do not give up, good will always win in the end.
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” ~ Isaiah 41:10
In the United States and Africa, the Linda Hoffman Foundation is proud to a part of the anti-sex trafficking movement across the country, and we have continue to advocate for the end of all trafficking around the world. We support trafficking survivors through the process of testifying against their traffickers in court, give them support and love in the times of depression, and provide them a safe house to recover from the horrendous events of their past.
How it begins.
The victims of human trafficking are either lured in by means of a promised job, promised wealth, or promised freedom. Little does the victim know, that they are falling into a trap where they are then forced into sex work to satisfy the demands of the many men. Nigeria is plagued by human trafficking. Young women are lured to Europe by false promises. When they get to the EU, they are violently forced into prostitution and kept in a false debt of what was claimed to be owed to their debtor for getting them across the sea. An escape is almost impossible.
When will this end?
"But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty." 2 Timothy 3:1
We come together for one cause. We come together as one nation to free our people from the evil act of human-trafficking. We come together as one.
Sex Trafficking Research
Research is critical to understanding the signs of sex trafficking and the scope of its impact on victims. However, with a majority of the victims reluctant to come forward with their current situation, it becomes difficult to collect accurate data that could help put a stop to this criminal industry. For this reason, The Linda Hoffman Foundation, have collaborated with exceptional research partners to unite our experience to their analytical expertise and produce groundbreaking studies and procedures with results.
Research will always be critical in the fight to end sex trafficking on a global scale.
"For nothing is hidden that will not be made manifest, nor is anything secret that will not be known and come to light." Luke 8:17
Involving local governments to improve services for women, children, and their families is another crucial part of our work. With increasing community support, we are able to provide more and more victims with the opportunities every women and child deserves.
