Roisin's IJM Internship

There are over 40million people trapped in slavery globally – and a quarter of those are children. It’s a multi-billion dollar industry, which operates all over the world. 

International Justice Mission (IJM) aims to eliminate this problem globally. They do this through a threefold model of rescuing slaves, prosecuting slave owners and then lobbying governments to enforce laws which eliminate slavery permanently.

Next year, I will be moving to one of their anti-sex trafficking offices in South-Asia as a Government Relations and Advocacy Intern. As part of this work I will be helping with research and policy development; lobbying members of government to get laws changed; and helping with capacity training for local law enforcement. I can’t wait to help implement vital changes that could help change thousands of people’s lives for the better.

In order to do this internship, I need to raise around £10,000 on top of money I have already saved. This will cover the costs of living overseas for a year, for example, rent, flights, food, transport etc. I would be so grateful if you were willing to partner with me this year, by donating! Any amount would be greatly appreciated!!
