A Free Woman - Trafficking Prevention


In many parts of the world, children and women do not have support systems or financial security because they lack education or an advocate. Unfortunately, this lack often leads to all forms of exploitation, including sexual exploitation. Children may quit school or not attend at all, they may be forced to beg in the streets or sort through trash for something to sell or eat. Young boys and girls might be coerced into becoming house servants or pick vegetables under the hot sun. Without protection, there is little hope of escape from these desperate circumstances.

But there is hope. With help from DFN’s loving and caring workers, vulnerable women and children receive all they need to secure a bright future – safety, counselling, education, skills training. You can promise to provide a future filled with dignity, freedom, and hope.


You promise full Community Care to girls and women vulnerable to various forms of exploitation. You empower girls and their families to receive education and/or skills training so they are economically self-reliant and able to create a bright future for themselves. And you provide access to resources such as counseling, healthcare and legal support. In short, you make sure children can grow up safe and sound and give families the resources they need to thrive. 

You provide a comprehensive and holistic program aimed at changing risk factors inside communities, and you enable our on-the-ground teams to do their work. Experts agree that impact is longest-lasting when help comes from within a local community. Our teams live and work in the communities they serve, and they are committed to driving change.



Joining Promise is the very best way to provide community care because it provides initiatives that lift vulnerable children, women, and men out of poverty. Members of Promise provide opportunities such as education and skills training bring that break the chains of injustice and discrimination.  This is whole care for the whole community.
