Free the Slaves (FTS) was founded in 2000, and today the organization is considered a leader and pioneer in the modern abolitionist movement.

They have helped awaken the world to the fact that slavery still exists, why it does, and where it’s worst. They've developed a global blueprint for change to inform governments, international institutions, faith communities, businesses, and the public what they can do.

FTS helps communities chart their own path toward sustainable freedom by strengthening the capacity of grassroots organizations, government agencies, advocacy coalitions, and the media to take action. FTS supports vulnerable communities through education, mobilization, and increasing access to education, vocational training, and essential services. Currently FTS works in six countries: India, Nepal, Ghana, Senegal, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Haiti.
