We serve children from our offices in Asia, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Love146 is working to end child trafficking and exploitation through survivor care and prevention.
We began in 2002, building and expanding safe homes in Asia and training grassroots aftercare workers with knowledge in best practices and equipping them with practical tools to be even more effective. In 2008, we opened our Round Home for girls in the Philippines, and since then have added three more additional survivor care locations, serving both boys and girls in the Philippines, the U.S. and the U.K.
However, we could only provide survivor care for so long before asking ourselves, “What can we do to actually prevent exploitation from occurring in the first place?” Our Prevention Education program has been developed to better answer just that question. Prevention Education reaches children before traffickers do. We’ve reached thousands of U.S. children in classroom and community settings, equipping them to recognize vulnerabilities and protect themselves and their peers from exploitation. In 2015, we completed & began implementing a youth curriculum, called “Not A #Number,” which incorporates what we’ve learned about effective prevention.
The trafficking and exploitation of children is one of the darkest stories and most severe human rights abuses imaginable. But for us, the hope of ending it is a reality. Love146 is helping grow the movement to end child trafficking while providing effective, thoughtful solutions. We believe in the power of love and its ability to effect sustainable change. Love is the foundation of our motivation.
