Igniting Hope and Empowering Women and Children Sex-trafficking Survivors in Ethiopia

Our Approach


Girls and women are empowered to obtain an education, learn a trade, find work, and live life to the fullest.


Girls and women who are rescued receive appropriate care through counseling, prayer, and trauma healing practices


Girls and women who have successfully completed the Rescue and Rehabilitate programs will transition to the real world– healed, trained, and equipped to make a living and sustain themselves

Our Work

1 in 3 people live in extreme poverty. We’re on a mission to change that. Sex trafficking and poverty are intimately wedded. Our call is to tackle those issues holistically.

Our Impact

We are currently changing one life at a time by battling poverty and promoting lives of freedom in Ethiopia. At SLW, we promote a 3-step-model to fight human trafficking, that identifies the vulnerable, and at-risk; We source them with alternative resources that will help lead them into a purpose-driven life.

Meet the Team

The SLW Board of Directors consists of six members, each collaborating to support the different parts of the ministry. We rely heavily on volunteers who have a heart for sex trafficking and poverty alleviation. They partner with our board members, churches, NGOs, and businesses to advance the work. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please contact us.
