Bringing Dignity and Hope
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.
We see all people as created equal and advocate to treat everyone with dignity and respect
We serve & add value through authentic relationships. Trustworthiness & integrity are key
We believe that attitude breeds success - doing it well is doing it right.
We have faith that nothing is impossible with God at our side
We understand that we are stronger together, networking and partnerships are key to our work

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.
