“Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could only do a little.”- Edmund Burke
The global issue of sex trafficking is substantial and it is not going away. In 2017, The International Labour Organisation estimated*:
It is easy to turn away from difficult subjects; “the problem is too big, too difficult, it's not mine, it's not here...” but it is.
IIT, collaborating with local expertise, aims to intervene, prevent and limit the underlying causes through building and supporting community centres; through education and skills training, which are paramount in avoiding the ‘poverty trap’ - the fertile breeding ground for sex trafficking; to rehabilitate survivors through a vocational training rehabilitation centre and to break up the networks and bring the perpetrators to justice.

“For to be free is not merely to cast off ones chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.”

On recognising a problem, we conduct the necessary research and scoping to ensure we fully understand the needs at hand and the environment and culture in which they exist.
We work with experts to create solutions to combat the issue at hand and make a sustainable change. Wherever we can, we employ the local community to deliver the solutions.
We ensure the results of our work are monitored and we only create sustainable solutions. We hope our projects and beneficiaries become self-sufficient so in turn they can create positive contributions to society.
