OUR MISSION

International Justice Mission has been working to secure the rescue of victims of trafficking in the Philippines since 2007. After a rescue, IJM partners with government and nongovernment agencies that provide shelter and rehabilitation to these survivors in an effort to bring about healing and restoration.

The primary goal of aftercare shelters is the successful reintegration of survivors back to safe communities. However, the vulnerabilities that led survivors to being trafficked are likely to still exist since survivors are often under-resourced and under-educated. Many are unable to provide for their most basic needs, including food, adequate and sanitary shelter, clothing and security, and education, thereby increasing their risk of being re-trafficked or exploited in other ways.

This is where Solid Ground International enters the story.
