Our commitment is to end all forms of human exploitation.
Our Thematic Lines
We promote and implement projects throughout Peru and seek to fight against human exploitation, encouraging the development of people, organizations and society. These are our thematic areas:
The capture, transport, transfer and retention of a person against their will in order to exploit them undermines their fundamental rights as a human being. Our commitment is to fight against this crime.
The use of children and adolescents, both boys and girls, in sexual or erotic acts in exchange for money, gifts, food or other supposed benefits is a violation of human rights that affects the physical, social and emotional development of the people who suffer it.
