Stand with us in the fight against modern day slavery.
Equity ownership, fundraising support and our voice. Our success directly impacts theirs.
There are an estimated 2 million children exploited in the global commercial sex trade each year. Human trafficking is the second largest criminal enterprise in the world and one of the largest human rights injustices being perpetrated today.
In response to the growing problem, Erica Greve founded Unlikely Heroes, a non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing and restoring child victims out of sex slavery worldwide. Since its initial founding in 2011, Unlikely Heroes’ holistic, cross-cultural, and individualized care model has made them pioneers in rescue and restoration practices for commercially sexually exploited children victims (CSEC).
Unlikely Heroes currently operates four restoration homes for children rescued out of sex slavery in the Philippines, Thailand, and Mexico. In May of 2014, as a result of their established global reputation, Unlikely Heroes was asked to send teams to Nigeria to provide on-the-ground support, counseling, and medical services to the only escaped child victims of the Chibok schoolgirl kidnapping and many of the family members who continue to wait for the return of the schoolgirls yet to be rescued.
While Unlikely Heroes is celebrating success in the international field, they are continuing to work around the clock to extend their field efforts to the U.S. for the first time. In December 2015, Unlikely Heroes is opening a residential care facility in Texas for child victims rescued out of sex slavery. Their restoration home will provide wraparound support services for ten rescued children, including housing, safety, therapy, education, life skills, medical care and legal. Their newest home is in part a larger effort to confront the problems of sex trafficking that exists locally in the States. And the numbers surrounding the issue are hard to ignore.
Despite the size of the task before them, Erica and her team are always hopeful. They believe in the strength of their program to protect human rights by giving a second chance at life back to some of the world’s most vulnerable, exploited, and forgotten people: children trapped in sex slavery.
