Family and friends play a crucial role in preventing trafficking and supporting victims/survivors. Become familiar with the signs of trafficking and stay alert to potential trafficking scenarios.
Supporting the efforts of an organization fighting human trafficking is one of the biggest ways to make a difference. From dinner parties to trivia nights to bake sales to half-marathons to celebrating a special occasion, there are countless ways to fundraise for a cause you care about.
At Ally Global Foundation, we make fundraising easy! Our website makes it simple to start your fundraiser, share it with friends and family, and track your progress towards your fundraising goal—all within 3 minutes or less. Your time and creativity can go a long way towards helping prevent human trafficking and provide aftercare for survivors.
Traffickers often target people who are emotionally vulnerable, going through a tough time or don’t have a strong support system around them. As a mentor, you can have a positive impact on someone’s life during their formative years. Consider volunteering with a community-based mentorship program like Big Brothers, Big Sisters.
Based on the true story of one survivor, The Twelve Thousand is a powerful short film for raising awareness about human trafficking. The film features no professional actors, only Nepalese nationals—all of whom have been affected by sex trafficking. The Twelve Thousand can be streamed online for free at any time.
Bonus Idea: gather your friends and family to watch the film together and use the small group discussion guide to facilitate meaningful conversations.

Though trafficking can look different in different countries, one thing remains the same: traffickers always prey on vulnerability.
The more children, youth and parents understand how trafficking takes place, the better chance we have of stopping trafficking before it even happens.
