Not4Sale was birthed with the passion and desire to do something to help children caught in human trafficking. There are more slaves today then in all of human history. However, unlike slavery of the past, it is not about owning someone, but about using them as a disposable tool to make money. It is one of the fastest growing international crimes, bringing in billions of dollars at the expense of human lives.
Children as young as three years old are illegally trafficked and sexually abused in secret rooms of public brothels. They are offered several times per day to tourists and locals alike, and earn money for their abductors and keepers. These children have no one to go to for help, and thus endure horrific abuse for many years of their lives.
Victory is now branching out on our own to start our own safe houses. We have been working for the last year to put together a team, gathering information and putting everything in place. We are now ready to launch our first home in Ensenada, Mexico. The vision of Not4Sale is to raise funds and to establish safe-houses for children who are exploited in the sex industry. The goal of our safe-houses is to provide long-term safe-havens and education to numerous young girls.
These children need a place where they know they are loved; a place where they can heal physically and emotionally; and a place where they can be children again. Our safe-homes provide a home environment where the girls will have counselling, training in a trade and a family structure with house parents and other girls.
The number of children exploited in the sex-trade industry is staggering, and the need for help is real and immediate. While we hope that one day human trafficking will be abolished, we know that right now children can be rescued and restored in body, soul and spirit.
Everyone is invited to join this fight! Together with your help, we can reach more children.
