End Slavery

Photo by Andrew Nicodem / ITeams

The enslavement of human beings is a tragedy that must not be tolerated! Slavery in all its various forms has grown in public awareness in recent years. Media attention has brought it to the forefront as a priority for governments, nonprofits, businesses and churches. Many well-intentioned people have jumped into the deep end of this complex injustice with insufficient expertise and have unknowingly done more harm than good.

At ITeams we denounce all forms of oppression and have a passion to see freedom come for anyone trapped in modern-day slavery. We are committed to standing with all oppressed people and preventing those who are vulnerable from being exploited. In our integrated model of community transformation, we are committed to seeing the invisible. And often those invisible are trapped in some form of slavery (forced labor, sexual exploitation, domestic abuse, systemic injustices…)

Once we discover a person trapped in slavery, we will go to extraordinary lengths to provide access to food, freedom, and forgiveness in a sustainable way that gives them hope for lasting change. These strategies include providing refuge and food, vocational training, trauma counseling, preventative training, discipleship, basic business skills, education, government intervention and prayer.

Ending slavery requires leadership, expertise, a proven track record, and a long-term commitment to the future. We are committed to confronting these issues and building strategic partnerships with experts who will join with us in bringing true transformation.

With Jesus and with each other we change the future for the enslaved in the communities where we serve.

INTEGRATED COMMUNITY TRANSFORMATION

ENTER

When we enter a community, we seek to relate to and understand the community through the eyes of Jesus. This includes pre-training and ongoing on-field research.

EVALUATE and ENGAGE

We repeat a collaborative cycle that aims to work alongside others in the community to identify and assess both needs and resources. Alongside the community, we encourage initiatives guided by a strategy and help implement them.

EXPAND

As transformation takes hold in a community our role changes. We avoid creating unhealthy dependencies and focus on what Jesus is doing within the community. This typically leads to expansion as transformation impacts surrounding communities.
