What do we do?

10KW equips human trafficking survivors with the education, skills, and jobs they need to stay safe and stay free.

What makes 10KW different?

Most economic empowerment programs for human trafficking survivors focus on short-term, low-wage (and often low-dignity) jobs that leave them vulnerable to re-trafficking and further exploitation. We help survivors get real jobs — safe, sustainable, and significant — which create real opportunities that lead to real freedom. Forever.

10KW invests in empowerment.
