Girl holding sign "I am an empowered girl"FAIR Fund, a D.C. based international nonprofit organization, works to prevent human trafficking and sexual violence in the lives of youth, especially girls, around the world. FAIR Fund builds the capacity of communities to better identify and assist youth aged 11 to 24 who are at high risk or have been exploited via human trafficking and sexual violence. FAIR Fund has active programs in Bosnia, Chicago, Illinois, Serbia, Russia, Washington, D.C, and Uganda.  Educating youth about how to keep themselves safe from sexual violence and human trafficking is a critical step in ending youth trafficking and exploitation. FAIR Fund utilizes two core curriculums that focus on rights based education and building lasting relationships with high risk youth.

FAIR Fund helps young girls worldwide avoid and escape commercial sexual exploitation and trafficking through community training and leadership, prevention education and compassionate care for high risk and trafficked girls.  Trafficking generates an estimated profit of $32,000,000,000 per year worldwide.  The U.S. Department of State’s Trafficking in Persons Report states that 12.3 million men, women and children are in forced labor, bonded labor or forced prostitution around the world.  Human trafficking is not only a problem around the world but also in the US.  According to a 2001 U Penn study, an estimated 150,000 to 250,000 children are at risk of commercial sexual exploitation a year.  Annually, FAIR Fund identifies between 35 and 50 child victims of domestic minor sex trafficking, in just the metro DC area, through outreach and law enforcement referrals.
