Three thousand children each day.
That’s how many children are trafficked throughout the world every day. This must stop. And we can do something about it.Our name Million Kids says it all. According to UNICEF over ONE MILLION KIDS are trafficked worldwide each year. Statistics like this are mind-numbing. But we cannot afford to be overwhelmed by the scope of the problem. We must provide the solution. Together we must act.We believe if the bad guys are harming that many children every year, then the good guys must reach even more. Million Kids is not just committed to helping rescue and restore children. We’re committed to helping all persons who have been victimized by trafficking to find lasting freedom and lifelong dignity.Human trafficking is an assault on human freedom and dignity that must end. Together, we can make a difference.
Million Kids works with local law enforcement and concerned citizens, businesses, and organizations to end human trafficking domestically. Locally, we serve on the Riverside County Anti-Human Trafficking Task Force (RCAHT). We help activists and communities develop effective anti-trafficking programs in their locales. We educate and engage individuals, organizations and corporations about human trafficking. Internationally, we conduct programs and work with partners to serve rescued children and to create prevention strategies. We provide local solutions while taking a global perspective on the human trafficking problem.
