Like our SBS alumnae, the phoenix is the ultimate symbol of strength and renewal. She lifts herself from the ashes of poverty and becomes a strong blaze of hope and prosperity. What if we could reduce the vulnerability of human trafficking by bringing economic prosperity to communities prone to predators. That is Freedom Phoenix.
While SBS partners represent all kinds of focus areas (healthcare, children’s education, environment, etc), Freedom Phoenix represents SBS’ effort to partner with anti-human trafficking organizations. With your help, we can leverage our proven entrepreneurial training as a tool to fight and prevent trafficking. We will light it on fire!
SBS can help organizations operate beyond a symptom strategy and champion a preemptive solution to human trafficking to target the heart of the problem:
“We are delighted to partner with SBS as they empower women through life-changing work. Women who don’t have dignified work will sell their bodies to feed their children or succumb to the lures of traffickers who promise jobs and income for themselves or their daughters – only later selling them into the sex trade. SBS prevents those shackles of slavery and shame before they ever start by empowering women to do work they’re proud of, provide for their families, and live joyful and free.” – Jernigan Foundation

While SBS is proud to partner with every kind of NGO, the Freedom Phoenix initiative invites the anti-human trafficking community to partner with us and add SBS to their current, invaluable work in order to shape lives devoid of trafficking’s tragedies. Freedom Phoenix scholarships are available.
Together, we can spark more attention and resources to prevention and protect women and children from being trafficked in the first place.
