Today over 40 million people are enslaved worldwide. 80% of those rescued from modern slavery, also known as Human Trafficking, will be re-trafficked absent safe employment opportunities. To fight modern slavery and exploitation we need a strategy that includes more than rescue, one which addresses the economic roots of the problem. Freedom Business is that strategy, but it is not without incredible challenges. Freedom Business exists to create employment opportunities for survivors of Human Trafficking and those At Risk. As of January 2023, there are around 115 Members of Freedom Business Alliance (FBA) operating in more than 30 countries around the world. It is the mission of FBA to scale the Freedom Business movement. Our vision is a job for every person healing from modern slavery and vulnerable to exploitation. As an industry facilitator for Freedom Business, FBA removes the many barriers to growth and scale that no single business can address on its own.
