Our vision at the Freedom Fund is a world free of slavery, and our mission is to mobilise the capital and knowledge needed to bring this about. We will use this blog to post updates on our work, comment on important slavery issues and developments, and engage in a lively discussion on the most effective ways to tackle this crime.
We believe in the power of collaboration and partnership. We believe in working with other organisations – particularly those based in communities devastated by slavery – to bring people out of slavery. We want to learn what works and what doesn’t, and what can be replicated and scaled. We will embed openness and accountability at the heart of our programs. This means we will be transparent about our work, and share our findings and our successes and failures. We encourage scrutiny of our efforts, and invite your comments and criticism.
It’s shameful that slavery still exists in the 21st century – and that every country is besmirched by its evil. But together we can end this crime against humanity. We invite you to join us so that we can complete the work of those visionary 18th century abolitionists and end the nightmare of slavery once and for all
