Where we work
Slave Free Earth works in the country of THAILAND, on the island of PHUKET, in the city of PATONG. Sadly Thailand has come to be know to many as "The Brothel to the World". Thousands upon thousands of men flock to Thailand each year to participate in the extensive sex industry. While prostitution is technically illegal in Thailand, the authorities mostly turn a blind eye to it, allowing it to flourish. The prevalance of the sex trade places countless women and children at risk for exploitation.
The city of Patong is well known for it "nightlife". It is here that we seek to establish a permanent presence. We provide support to women already ensnared in this dehumanizing industry. We also actively work to prevent young women and children from being trapped in the sex trade.
Who we are
Slave Free Earth was founded with one goal in mind; to join the fight against human trafficking, also known as modern day slavery. Our President, Cathy Henderson, lives in Thailand and works alongside several other like minded people to provide vocational training and support to women who are looking for a way to exit the sex trade.
The six member SFE Board of Directors, includes people from all walks of life. We have businessmen and women, homemakers, pastors and healthcare professionals. Each member brings passion and unique gifts that together make a team committed to making a difference in the lives of those trapped in slavery.
Believing all forms of prostitution are violence against and oppression toward women, SFE seeks to liberate women and children from the sex trade.
The overarching philosophy of ministry for Slave Free Earth is to follow Jesus’ directive and do our part in establishing the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth. We believe that to do this requires the loving presence of SFE personnel in the places where women and children are being exploited, actively working for their freedom.
