Organization: Free the Slaves
Closing date: 30 Apr 2019
Free the Slaves (FTS) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to ending human trafficking and modern slavery worldwide – with a focus on dismantling the economic, political and social systems that allow slavery to persist. We combine world-class research, innovative frontline community activism, targeted advocacy and compelling communications to alert the world that slavery still exists but can be overcome. We work with grassroots organizations to free people from slavery and help them rebuild their lives. We record and share survivor stories so people in power can see slavery and be inspired to work for freedom. We enlist businesses to clean slavery out of their product supply chains and empower consumers to avoid slavery-tainted products. We work with governments to implement effective anti-slavery laws and hold them to their commitments. We research what works and what does not, so that resources can be efficiently focused. Our headquarters is in Washington DC; we have operations in India, Nepal, Ghana, Haiti, Senegal and the Dominican Republic. To learn more about Free the Slaves, visit: www.freetheslaves.net.

Free the Slaves collaborates with and advocates to relevant agencies of the Ghana government to strengthen the government’s ability to respond to modern slavery.
