Slavery, exploitation and human trafficking – many people think these were a problem from years ago, and exist only in history books or epic films of former times.
The sad truth is that there are more people caught in slavery today than at any other time in history. The United Nations estimates that more than 27 million people are enslaved right now, with the majority being women and children, many in sexual slavery.
With over 50 projects in more than 30 countries, Freedom Climb brings hope and transforms the lives of women and children who are exploited, enslaved and trafficked.
Projects supported by Freedom Climb have one or more of three focuses: rescue and rehabilitation, prevention, and development.

Our initial goal is to affect the lives of 10,000 women and children by supporting projects that break the cycles of poverty, shame, slavery and despair.
We are hosting a Freedom Climb at Crosslands, Hornsby Heights on October 17th, from 1.30pm to raise funds for the Jogini girls of India, girls caught in ritualised prostitution often from as young as 10 years of age.
Participants can register on line at: http://www.freedomclimb.net.au
