There are more than 40 million people held against their will in slavery today 

Human trafficking is a 150 billion dollar industry 

1 in 4 human trafficking victims are children 

Human trafficking is a rapidly growing industry that affects our most vulnerable populations, particularly women and children. While many want to help, the barriers to locating and supporting community-run nonprofits abroad are high. Spero exists to eliminate those barriers.

Spero works to connect generous donors here in the U.S. to international organizations we vet and promote working on the issue of trafficking in their community. Spero is not here to reinvent the wheel. Instead, we exist to maximize the impact of donors' generosity and give a voice here in the U.S. to small international organizations already making big changes but need an effective way to share their stories and raise funds. Spero is the bridge that stewards responsible and effective generosity to under-served change-makers fighting trafficking around the globe. 

The Spero model is cost-efficient, empowering to the people we aim to serve, and gives donors the peace of mind that their donations are being used responsibly towards programs making a significant, lasting impact. 

This Give to the Max Day, we hope to raise $3,000 to fund our three partner agencies, Catalyst, Good Bureau, and Valoare Plus. 

Together, we've already created a huge impact: 

  • Support the rescue and rehabilitation of over 60 underage girls from sex trafficking

  • Feed over 1,500 vulnerable people in Delhi, India, during the COVID-19 Crisis 

  • Helped fund training and mentorship for 20+ Entrepreneur and Nonprofit leaders in and around Bucharest working to provide preventative programs for youth to stop sex trafficking before it even begins 

  • Spoke at a conference for 5,000 youth that brought together some of Romania's most influential leaders to educate the students on what they can do to prevent human trafficking in their communities. 

  • Funded programs focused on educating vulnerable youth about the dangers of trafficking in new regions of Romania.

With your gift, we will continue supporting this work, helping expand programs and services with the ultimate vision to end human trafficking across the globe.
