Love146 is an international human rights organization working to end child trafficking and exploitation through survivor care and prevention. The trafficking and exploitation of children is one of the darkest stories and most severe human rights abuses imaginable. But for us, the hope of ending it is a reality. Love146 is helping grow the movement to end child trafficking while providing effective, thoughtful solutions. We believe in the power of love and its ability to effect sustainable change. Love is the foundation of our motivation.

We serve children from our offices in Asia, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Love146 is working to end child trafficking and exploitation through survivor care and prevention.

We began in 2002, building and expanding safe homes in Asia and training grassroots aftercare workers with knowledge in best practices and equipping them with practical tools to be even more effective. In 2008, we opened our Round Home for girls in the Philippines, and since then have added three more additional survivor care locations, serving both boys and girls in the Philippines, the U.S. and the U.K.

However, we could only provide survivor care for so long before asking ourselves, “What can we do to actually prevent exploitation from occurring in the first place?” Our Prevention Education program has been developed to better answer just that question. Prevention Education reaches children before traffickers do. We’ve reached thousands of U.S. children in classroom and community settings, equipping them to recognize vulnerabilities and protect themselves and their peers from exploitation. In 2015, we completed & began implementing a youth curriculum, called “Not A #Number,” which incorporates what we’ve learned about effective prevention.

OUR VISION IS THE ABOLITION OF CHILD TRAFFICKING AND EXPLOITATION. NOTHING LESS.

OUR VALUES

WE HOPE

We choose to hope as an act of defiance in the face of violence and horrific abuse. Children are our teachers. Undeterred by despair and cynicism, we insist that every step is worth it.
 

WE ARE THOUGHTFUL

We are working within a very complex issue. It is worth extra time and resources to be thoughtful so that our solutions will endure and have a greater impact.
 

WE LISTEN

We welcome diverse perspectives to the Love146 table, refining our approach by listening to others with experience. We are forever learners: hearing, thinking, and responding deliberately.
 

WE COLLABORATE

We don’t reinvent the wheel. Instead, we ask, “How can we be helpful?” As specialists, we are more effective when we collaborate with other specialists. We are stronger together.
 

WE INNOVATE

We challenge assumptions. In the midst of a daily sense of urgency, we imagine, develop, tweak, grow, and evolve solutions that work.
 

WE PERSEVERE

We stick around for the long haul. Our story isn’t just about victories, triumphs, and fairytale endings — it’s about not giving up. We embrace stories that never truly end: that have complexity, struggle, beauty, and humanity.
