Global Orphan Prevention
“We prevent the abduction of children for purposes of the orphan trade and sex trafficking through empowerment, economic development, and education.” Giving back is very important to us at This IS Idaho Springs, and this is the perfect time of year to give a little extra! That’s why we’re partnering with 12 great charities in the Denver Metro area, such as Global Orphan Prevention, to highlight the great work that’s happening all year round!
What They Do
Global Orphan Prevention has been working since its founding to eliminate child trafficking around the world. This effort translates to aiding economic development in third world countries, keeping families together, and raising awareness and education on the issues. Much of their focus has been on educating and equipping the people of at-risk regions through women empowerment programs, equal education opportunity for girls, and creating economic alternatives for those in poverty.
Global Orphan Prevention is working to combat the orphan trade and child trafficking by looking at the root of the issues: poverty and lack of education. By setting up more accessible schooling, microenterprises, and empowerment programs, people are better equipped to protect themselves and keep their families together.
The impact of Global Orphan Prevention is worldwide in scope. They are working in remote and underserved areas to combat a real and widespread problem. As they are making strides against the orphan trade and child trafficking, they are also combatting poverty and illiteracy. Global Orphan Prevention is working holistically to protect and prepare families across the world. To get involved in their efforts, visit their website and see how you can help.
