In keeping with our investment roots, we take our role in evaluating our impact very seriously. We direct resources to anti-slavery initiatives across the world where they can make the biggest difference. We measure what works, we learn from unexpected results, and we share our knowledge. You can find a PDF of our latest impact results here.
Transparent results, published online
Every quarter and annually we publish the latest data showing what impact our partners have achieved through the Freedom Fund’s support. Our 2015 Annual Impact Report can be viewed here and our 2014 Annual Impact Report can be found here.
Below we have highlighted results up to the end of Dec 2016 for the 101 organisations we are investing in as part of our six operational hotspot programs.
Number of people liberated from any form of slavery, be it through gradual change of circumstance or shorter “rescue event”. The Freedom Fund’s approach is to only support liberations where services for survivor recovery are provided. We formalised this policy with partners in July 2016. Prior to this date a small proportion of reported liberations may not have included follow-up support.
Survivor recovery services are provided (by Freedom Fund partner or other agency) to ensure the individual can resettle with their family or independently, and can access socio-economic and legal assistance to ensure their freedom can be sustained.
