International Justice Mission is a global organization with a proven solution to end violence and trafficking for good.
With your help, IJM works with local authorities in 24 program offices across 14 countries to combat slavery, violence against women and children, and police abuse of power.
And it’s working. To date, IJM has helped protect over 7.3 million vulnerable people. Last year alone, more than 7,200 people were rescued from slavery. Thanks to partners like you, more people are protected from violence every day – and we will not stop working until all are free.
Help make justice unstoppable. Join the movement.
Strengthen Justice Systems
We offer training for government officials combating slavery, equipping them to respond to cases of slavery sensitively and proactively. Together, we design improvements that serve survivors and deter other potential traffickers.
Rescue and Restore Victims
We identify brothels, homes, factories, fishing boats and farms where people are trafficked, and partner with local police to conduct rescue operations. We then walk with survivors on the path to restoration, developing care plans focusing on physical health, trauma counseling and economic self-sufficiency.
Bring Criminals to Justice
We work alongside justice system officials to build strong cases against traffickers and hold them accountable under local laws. We aid public prosecutors by collecting evidence and researching legal precedents.
Scale Demand for Protection
We convene and equip champions—from grassroots community leaders and survivors of trafficking to global corporations and development institutions—to call on governments to protect people from slavery.
But it doesn't stop there. We're not only working all around the world to free people trapped in slavery, we're protecting them from brutal violence:
Forced Labour Slavery
Forced labour slavery uses deception, threats or violence to coerce someone to work for little to no pay.
The nightmare of sex trafficking thrives when women and children who are vulnerable aren't protected by their own justice systems.
Sexual Violence Against Children
Sexual violence is a global epidemic that leaves millions of children around the world terrified in their homes, schools and neighbourhoods.
Online Sexual Exploitation of Children
Millions of children become victims of online sexual exploitation, which is a form of sex trafficking where customers search online and wire a secure payment to an adult who sets up the show.
Police Abuse of Power
Poor people in the developing world are abused by corrupt police who extort bribes and brutalize innocent citizens.
Widows and orphans in the developing world are particularly vulnerable to land theft. A house and a small patch of land are often their only source of shelter or food.
IJM partners with local authorities in 24 program offices in 14 countries to combat slavery, violence against women and children, and other forms of abuse against people who are poor.
