We are excited to partner with Fly Fishing Collaborative (FFC). This is an amazing organization "Mobilizing the Fly Fishing Community to create sustainable solutions to human trafficking."
In their own words:
FFC exists to use our passion for fly fishing for a good and just cause. According to United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), human trafficking is the world’s third largest enterprise after drugs and weapons. Over 2 million children are affected annually. Studies show that children caught in sex trafficking are victimized by 100–1500 perpetrators each year. We formed the Fly Fishing Collaborative to mobilizing the world’s fly fishing community to use the skills we have to provide children the protection and healing they need from the injustice of sex-trafficking.
The money we raise at our local fly fishing events, the selling of our FFC branded products, and through your direct giving is used to build sustainable aquaponics farms which provide resources (fish and vegetables) to women and children who would otherwise become currency, literally needing to sell themselves as a livelihood, in a broken world.
Every $15,000 we raise provides a sustainable aquaponics farm for an orphanage or safe-home. Equipped with food, water, and fresh produce, they’re then able to put their time towards empowering local leaders to care for additional children that would otherwise be sold into slavery.
