It’s one of the leading social justice issues in modern society. It exists in the shadows of nearly every country, including the United States. Human trafficking is the illegal trade of people through force, fraud, or coercion.
It is estimated that 27 million human trafficking victims suffer in the corners of our society today, nearly half of which are children. For girls, the average age of capture is just 12-14 years old.
Posing as religious leaders, successful businessmen, or sympathetic paternal figures, human traffickers enter impoverished villages around the world and convince families to give up their children by promising a better life for them. With their victims’ identification papers in hand, traffickers are able to make them disappear from the public eye. Many are smuggled into neighboring countries and sold into sexual slavery while others are forced into harsh labor environments – often for less than $100.
e3 Partners is committed to preventing these abuses and you can join us. From Thailand to Ethiopia, we are entering local villages where up to 90% of families have lost loved ones to human trafficking. Using the PricelessCube, we reveal the truth about what is happening to their children. Through the simple message that every life is priceless, we are then able to share the Gospel in unreached communities.
In just ten days, you can save a child’s life, share the story of Jesus with dozens of people, and leave behind a Gospel movement that outlives your time on this Earth. Click here to learn more about Priceless expeditions and register today.
