Overview

AHT_Overview.jpg

For the last decade, the number of individuals trapped in the vicious industry of human trafficking has increased with every passing year.* It is estimated that as many as 40 million people in the world today are being bought and sold as modern-day slaves. Women, children, and even men are being captured, exploited, and abused on a daily basis in every country around the world.

The statistics are staggering. Human trafficking generates $150 billion worldwide, with the United States leading all other countries demand. Roughly 70% of victims worldwide are female. 25% are children. They have been identified in every single US state, and more than ever are reaching out for help.**

These numbers are just a few of the overwhelming many, and they are only rising. But hope is not lost. Now is the time that the fight for the lives of these 40 million is now a rising concern for organizations, churches, and leaders across the globe. The Tim Tebow Foundation is committed to advancing this fight for the lives of those who have been trafficked or who are at risk of becoming victims. Though the Foundation has served in this space for years, we are burdened to go deeper.

Why It Matters

AHT_Why_It_Matters.jpg

At TTF, we believe every human being is uniquely and perfectly created by God in His very own image. We believe that God has a plan and a purpose for every single person upon the earth which is designed to be reflective of the true beauty and freedom found in Him alone. Human trafficking is an offense to the sanctity of human life. It is not only a crime, it is pure evil. We believe it is on all of us to confront this global atrocity, and fight like never before for the millions desperately in need of true healing and hope.

Global Strategy

In partnership with organizations in both the US and abroad, the Foundation is actively fighting against human trafficking in three ways. First, we are proactive. We believe that the implementation of programs designed to preserve and strengthen a healthy family unit is key to lowering the trend. Secondly, we are reactive. We are working in conjunction with rescue organizations on the front lines, those actively involved in the literal rescue of those who are enslaved. And finally, we are committed to supporting the survivors’ long-term recovery through relationship by providing them with comprehensive resources needed for healing, including sharing with them the life-changing message of the Gospel, so they may overcome the vicious trauma and abuse they have suffered.


Her Song

TTF recently united with Her Song Jacksonville under the leadership of the TTF Board to fortify the work being done at the local level to increase prevention awareness, rescue more victims, and serve more survivors in their journey to true freedom. Equally as important however, by serving together, the TTF and Her Song are leveraging the independent strengths of each organization to replicate the impact being made locally on a national and international scale. Working with several other strategic partners in this space, the combined efforts of the Tim Tebow Foundation and Her Song will multiply the assault on this darkest of evils.

How You Can Help

Frequently Asked Questions

What countries are you serving in? Which organizations are you partnering with?

TTF is currently serving both domestically and internationally in 8 different countries. For the safety and security of both the victims and the rescue operations on the front lines, we are unable to disclose more specific details such as names or locations.

What type of work is the foundation doing to impact the crisis?

The foundation is engaged in three phases of impact: proactively through international community resource centers that come alongside at-risk families providing training and support to strengthen the family unit, preventing them from being taken advantage of in their vulnerability or having to turn their children into commodities out of desperation; reactively through support of rescue operations that extract victims from the darkest of places and bring them to safety; and relationally through a holistic community of care that addresses survivors’ physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual needs in long-term residential settings that nurture their healing and give them the tools for a life of freedom.

How can my organization partner with yours?

At this time, we are focusing our efforts on deepening our impact through our current strategic partnerships.
