End Trafficking in Japan

Shared Hope International (SHI) awarded subgrants in each of the locations examined in the DEMAND. project totaling $124,000. Subgrants funded projects for public awareness and outreach to at-risk and exploited women and children and for direct care and shelter to victims. Subgrants were funded by the U.S. Department of State, Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons. The market in Japan continues unabated, even in spite of economic upheaval. Now you can help put an end to it.
