Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery that is occurring every day across the world and right here in our own communities. There are an estimated 100,000 victims of sexual exploitation in America and there are an estimated 40 million victims of human trafficking globally. Human trafficking is a $150 billion industry and the fastest growing criminal enterprise.
3Strands Global Foundation provides human trafficking prevention education to students, educators, and community members in order to prevent the crime before it starts. 3Strands Global co-created PROTECT, a statewide, standardized prevention education curriculum, to teach students the signs and tactics of traffickers so they are able to protect themselves and others from victimization and to train educators on how to recognize when a child is at-risk of being trafficked. 3Strands Global Foundation also reintegrates survivors of human trafficking and at-risk youth by placing them in jobs in the Sacramento region. In 2017, 3Strands Global employed 79 survivors and at-risk youth locally in order to protect them from future exploitation. 3Strands Global Foundation also purchases bracelets and other handmade products to be sold domestically to ensure survivors and those at-risk around the world have a sustainable job. 3Strands Global Foundation also hosts the Break Free Run, a 5K/10K Run/Walk, in the Sacramento region and the Bay Area to raise awareness and funds to combat human trafficking.
In 2018, 3Strands Global Foundation will seek individual monthly donations, grants, and collaborative private partners to support the organization's prevention education and reintegration initiatives.

Our top needs:

  2. Funding: Program - Reintegration of Survivors of Trafficking: The goal of our reintegration program is to place an additional 50 survivors of trafficking and those at-risk in a sustainable, trauma-informed job in order to support themselves, afford secure housing, and progress toward self-sufficiency
  3. Technology - Funding for Cisco online Learning Management System to disseminate our PROTECT training and curriculum materials to educators in a sustainable manner, and for Qualtrics Research online survey software to measure the impact of our PROTECT program.
  4. Funding: Unrestricted - Marketing and collateral development to communicate and raise awareness to the issue of human trafficking and the impact of 3Strands Global's programs.
  5. Volunteers - PROTECT Volunteer Educators, Tabling, Break Free Run/Event Volunteers
'My mission is to engage our community to do something to combat human trafficking. This is an unthinkable crime that many are not aware of, or choose to look the other way. The average age of a child sold into sex trafficking is 15. To have such little value for human life baffles me on a daily basis. These children are precious and are being exploited in the most unthinkable ways. At 3Strands Global Foundation, we view prevention education and reintegration programs as critical to disrupting the economy of this crime. PREVENTION EDUCATION is a powerful tool in our fight against trafficking because every child, teen and young adult is vulnerable to this crime. REINTEGRATION is key for survivors of human trafficking to break the bonds of exploitation. We MOBILIZE communities through our continued engagement activities, offering individuals and organizations the opportunity to DO SOMETHING. Human trafficking is a rapidly growing global enterprise and it is NOT OK!' Sincerely, Ashlie Bryant, CEO and Co-Founder of 3Strands Global Foundation
