WHO WE ARE
The Freedom Project India (TFPI) is a registered Indian non-profit (reg no BNS-4-00701-2013-2014) that seeks to end slavery in every form and build empowered, safe communities with youth as the change agents.
Founded in 2013 as a justice agency seeking to work among the underprivileged, TFPI has since impacted over 500 youth through sport and education and rescued 150 women and children from slavery. .
“Our Vision is for slave free, safe and empowered communities that are thriving hubs of trust and harmony, where family relationships are nurtured and every individual has an opportunity to develop to their full potential."
We are committed to seeing the cycle of poverty broken, the enslaved set free, the oppressed delivered, the perpetrators brought to justice and justice and mercy prevail. .
To build safe communities that are engaged, informed, empowered and equipped, using the youth as agents of change. To end slavery of every form through the rescue and restoration of those in bondage while building a community that is aware, informed and active to stop this evil.
We believe in and value freedom and equality as basic human rights. Those trapped in slavery have been denied these rights, and we are committed to restoring their lives to be lived to their full potential.
WHAT WE DO
The Freedom Project India aims to improve holistic outcomes for families including children, youth and women from vulnerable communities through programs promoting child protection, family values and relationships, preventive health, education, sport, skill training, income generation and capacity building.
TFPI - ENDING SLAVERY
Our justice program secures freedom, justice and restoration for girls, women and children trapped in commercial sexual exploitation , child labour and bonded labour and protects thousands more from exploitation.
TFPI does this by equipping and building a community of people who will be aware and alert to prevent the trafficking of persons whether it is at source , destination or in transit and expanding our unique partnership model and casework experience to increase government-led rescue operations across the state of Karnataka.
Our justice program also runs a Rapid Assessment Centre (RAC) for women survivors of human trafficking. The beneficiaries undergo both short-term and long-term individualized rehabilitation programs that aims to reintegrate them back into society. The program commits to stand by each victim/survivor of trafficking for as long as they need our support.
TFPI - Sports
Our youth empowerment program works with 500 young boys and their families in 6 underprivileged communities across Bangalore, through the facilitation of a sports program, livelihood training, career guidance and job placements, and family-based relationship building initiatives, creating citizen role models and agents of change to contribute towards positive, sustainable outcomes for the target communities.
This is achieved through a process facilitated by the project team of coaches and counsellors building relationships with the youth and their families on a daily basis through professional football coaching and home visitations, to encourage social change within the families of the youth and their communities. The project team also works with the families in a support capacity to develop their employability prospects, thereby encouraging economic independence, and improved livelihood outcomes for the young men.
