What is the goal?
The goal is to educate people through the power of social media about sex-trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation that is occurring in our country and simultaneously raise money that will go towards sex trafficking relief and restoration of survivors. Our goal is to raise close to $180,000 so that our first group of girls can be welcomed into our program and receive a 1-2 year wrap-around program full of 24/7 care, therapy, medical support, opportunity, life skill guidance, education, and more.
Where will the funds go?
Hidden in the beautiful hillsides of Oklahoma, The Demand Project has developed one of the largest residential campuses for underage girls surviving human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation. Mount Arukah - which means restoration - is a place of safety, hope, and recovery for girls as young as 11 years old.
What do we need?
We need YOUR support to spread awareness and to help us raise funds to provide these young girls a program at no cost to them. Other facilities that offer similar services can cost up to $3,000 a month. But The Demand Project is different. We don't believe a survivor should have to pay again for the insidious crimes done to them.
Help a survivor begin a new life. Be a part of the solution.
Who is The Demand Project?
The Demand Project is a 501(c)(3) organization that has been fighting sex-trafficking and sexual exploitation on all sides for over 8 years.
We work in everything from the prevention side of sexual abuse, sex trafficking, and sexual exploitation to the prosecution of traffickers and the rescue and full restoration of survivors.
Our CEO, Kristin Weis has been appointed by President Trump to serve on the Public-Private Partnership Advisory Council to end human trafficking.
The Demand Project believes in educating, equipping, and empowering the community on how to stay safe against child predators who seek to harm children. We provide in-depth presentations that will give you insights on how predators operate, how to keep children safe online, and how you can stay educated on any emerging technological trends.
We believe that law enforcement plays a key role in stopping child predators, protecting children, and rescuing victims. The Demand Project has developed strategic relationships with various law enforcement agencies that target child predators and individuals who commercially traffic people against their will. We direct funds to these agencies and are able to help fund additional arrests and operations.
The Demand Project also believes there is a place for Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO’s) to be of assistance to law enforcement in the rescue of sexually exploited victims. This can only happen with a collateral partnership between both organizations. The Demand Project has built such a relationship between VAST (victim advocate support teams) and key law enforcement agents across Oklahoma and the country.
Lastly, The Demand Project believes that rescuing a victim from sexual exploitation is only the beginning of an extensive process for a victim to become a survivor. Donated community resources become imperative to the survivor’s successful recovery once they transition out of the shelter and reintegrate back into our community. One of the major ways that we help survivors do this is through Mount Arukah and our Journey wrap-around program.
