Children who were recently rescued from slavery in May. Rescue is only the first step, theses children need medical care, counseling, clothes, food, and shelter.

A message from our founder, Thomas; Meet James Kofi Annan

The Many Hopes RENEW 100 campaign will rehabilitate and reintegrate 100 of the 150 children we are rescuing between now and April 30, 2022.


Covers full care and rehabilitation for a rescued child in our recovery center. This provides everything from food, clothes and medical care to therapy, education, and classes about laws and rights and how to identify and combat abuse of themselves and others when they see it.


Facilitates a child’s reintegration with a family and 2 years of monitoring and support.


The Problem

More than 800 million children are living in injustice and oppression (slavery, sexual abuse, abandonment) that they can’t get out of. Charity alone will not solve this.
We need more than charity.

The Mission

Equipping children to become men and women who break cycles of injustice.

Our Vision

We believe in a world where outside charities are no longer needed because children who survived injustice themselves are leading the fights for justice that prevent millions of other children from suffering what they did.


We rescue children from injustice (abuse, slavery, abandonment) and equip them to be adults of influence able to defeat the causes of what they survived so other children don’t have to.

We believe that lasting change comes from within. From within a person, a community or a country.

We believe that children born into poverty are not a problem to be solved, but a solution waiting to be unleashed.

If we join them and provide access to that opportunity.

Long Term



We organize 1-2 trips per year to our programs in Africa and Latin America. The Ghana visit helps supporters and abolitionists understand the nature and cause of trafficking in the source communities, the nature of being enslaved on the lake (the destination communities), and our rehabilitation and reintegration programs for survivors post-rescue.


Deploying your influence and network to equip a survivor to take their next step to becoming an abolitionist themselves. In the “support” phase of Arc to Influence, friends in the USA and UK help survivors access higher education, internships, and employment through introductions to their networks.



We’re able to accept donations in the form of stock, government (including municipal) debt and corporate debt. This can be arranged from most brokerage accounts.
