Today, an estimated 46 million people live in modern slavery. In our work, impact means freeing people from situations of horrendous exploitation. To that end, we are proud to release our 2016 Annual Impact Report.
In 2016 alone, our 98 partners liberated 4,225 men, women and children from slavery. They enrolled over 10,000 at-risk children in school, and impacted on 130,568 of the world’s most vulnerable people in our six hotspots – in India, Nepal, Thailand and Ethiopia. We are inspired by our frontline partners as we reflect on our accomplishments this year, and we recognize that more work still needs to be done.
