Who we are
We are men and women committed to the abolition of all forms of slavery and human trafficking. In response to the horrific business of child trafficking in Southeast Asia, Frontline for Justice has sought to partner with other ministries working to bring freedom and wholeness to the women and children so victimized.
FFJ partnered with the Cambodian Hope Organization (CHO), in Poipet, Cambodia, from 2005 – 2011. Our vision has now expanded to include local ministries, as well as other ministries in Thailand and Cambodia.
Frontline for Justice advocates for women and children at risk of, or enslaved in, the injustices of sexual exploitation, trafficking, and slave labor. Our guiding principles are the prevention of trafficking, and the protection and restoration of its victims.
Prevention: Prevention takes many forms, all working to end the cycle of poverty. Poverty leads to vulnerability, and vulnerability to exploitation. If it is acceptable to sell your child or to buy a girl for a night, the cycle will never end. At its very roots, trafficking is a moral and spiritual problem.
Protection: Protection goes beyond simply rescuing and housing a trafficked child, it also includes programs designed to educate villagers on the dangers and duplicity of traffickers. A well informed village is able to protect its children, and to recognize the lies of the traffickers.
Restoration: True restoration must include the freedom to hope. Girls. Women. Orphans. The innocent who have been devastated in brothels need more than one night raid and one day of healthcare. To be truly rescued, they need solutions for a brand new life that will last a lifetime. (Agape International Mission) Through life skills training, education, counseling, and medical care, the child is given earthly hope. But restoration includes something far more valuable than earthly hope, it includes eternal Hope as well. Christ’s love and His offer of eternal restoration.
