GET INVOLVED – BECOME A CHAMPION FOR FREEDOM!
“My values are matching those of the Foundation and getting to know each of the women here has been so inspiring. I am determined to do all I can to help them in their journey of recovery.” ~ Shylo – Refit Instructor
What does it mean to be a Champion for Freedom?
Do you believe that everyone deserves a life free from slavery? Want to see the tides of injustice changed? Join us in the fight & take a stand against sex trafficking and exploitation through using your own voice, your own gifts, in your own community!
We, at the SA Foundation, believe change starts with helping one woman and child at a time – one life saved from slavery can have a bigger impact than you know and develops a legacy of freedom for generations to come.
We need all you dedicated and wholehearted Champions For Freedom to partner with us. We cannot do this alone. Whatever your means…you CAN MAKE A HUGE IMPACT!
We want you to get inspired to take action in your world.
