ABOUT

RESCUED… NOW WHAT?

Being rescued from victimization is the vital first step towards recovery from sex trafficking. But what happens next? Unfortunately, over time, far too many survivors are pulled back into “the life”, often due to economic desperation. Without the skills or know-how to support themselves in today’s global economy, they see no other option.

Survivors need hope – and they also need tools, guidance and direction if they are to not only survive, but THRIVE in their life beyond sex trafficking. This is where Qualified steps in.

OUR MISSION, OUR DREAM

 At Qualified we unearth dormant dreams and activate occupational purpose.

Our dedicated volunteers and expert staff are committed to guiding our participants towards the future of their dreams. Our dream is to create a world in which every survivor lives out her inherent purpose, changing the trajectory of future generations.
