ABOUT US

Set Free Foundation aims to serve individuals that are caught up in trafficking-in-persons or

who may be vulnerable to being trafficked. We believe that every person deserves the

opportunity to live in freedom and safety and to have opportunities that provide dignity,

hope and respect. It is inconceivable to us that any one person should ever be allowed to

deny another their basic rights, whether it be through fear, exploitation, deceit, or physical

and emotional captivity.

In tackling Human Trafficking, which is one of the world’s largest and most complex human

rights issues, SFF seeks to combine a strategic approach together with providing practical

hands on solutions. We approach this challenge by investing our time and resources

collaboratively, ensuring that thorough research is done on the communities we serve and

striving to drive behavioural change that will impact the lives of people living in

modern slavery today.

We believe all people matter, irrespective of social standing, race or religion, and each of us

can and must, do everything in our power to end modern slavery.

CORE VALUES

Our Work

Set Free Foundation (SFF) has operated as a non-profit organisation since 2014, with a focus on supporting survivors of trafficking in Bulgaria, assisting with:
- repatriation
- job-skill empowerment
- long-term mentorship

Concurrently, SFF focused on communities around Bulgaria that are vulnerable and at-risk to trafficking in persons by focusing on:
- building relationships
- raising awareness to the problems of trafficking in persons in Bulgaria
- training on trafficking prevention

Through our ongoing collaboration and networking, SFF continues to play a role in assisting survivors from all around the globe relocate and connect with trustworthy organisations working locally on the ground within their native country.

SFF aims to broaden our focus to serve and work with aging out orphans, who continue to be a community of the most overlooked, vulnerable and at-risk members of our society.

 

Ageing-Out orphans & Human Trafficking

Human traffickers target young people who are vulnerable and at risk – particularly those who do not have a support system around them. Loner’s and homeless youth present a low-risk proposition to traffickers and are relatively easy to lure from either the orphanages or the streets with promises of love, protection, food, and financial security. Because of their vulnerability, children and teens with no place to call home and no one to care for them are easy prey for traffickers.

Scale of Care

Through a combination of support strategies, including educational programs, job training and, medical services, counselling, legal support and soft-skill training, we help young people embrace and unlock their full potential. Our focus ensures that the practical aspects of housing, food and support are sourced and provided while concurrently ensuring that a support mentor or team journeys alongside each youngster - supporting them as they learn to overcome barriers to independence and reach for their dreams.

Liberty & Vitality

Our Vitality Program aims to provide a 3-fold approach to supporting aging out orphans.

1. Connecting with & developing relationships with orphanage staff & residents and raising awareness around the problem and risks associated with trafficking in persons.

2. Establishing Drop-in Centres in key locations across Bulgaria, providing onsite support, training, job-skill empowerment & mentorship

3. Liberty House provides an optional safe living environment in a secluded location, with onsite training and care
