We see women and children who have been bought, sold, traded and stripped of the most basic of human rights. We see them abused and treated as a commodity, rather than a dignified human being; someone’s daughter (their offspring), sister and friend. We see young women who need support urgently.
So our story began when we saw this need and recognised our ability to ‘do something’.
We are a team that loves to get involved in the little & the big! Our Founder & CEO, Kristi, believes wholeheartedly in the idea that “you can’t do everything, but you can do something”. It’s the little ‘somethings’ just as much as the big ‘somethings’ that create change! To think that one person can eliminate world poverty or end Human Trafficking is, well let’s be honest, unfortunately unrealistic. But it is realistic to say that every single person has the ability to ‘do something’, and together, it is ultimately the efforts of individuals which change the world.
With a year of research and experience in India and Greece throughout 2013, we wanted to establish a model that helped fill a need in the area of working with survivors. When we learnt about the tragic statistics of re-trafficking and girls going back into the trade because of lack of skills and knowledge, we had to step in and do ‘something’. Check out Our Model here to learn about how we aim to be a part of survivors’ restoration and reintegration back into community, breaking the cycle of re-trafficking.
At Offspring, we believe that in some capacity we are all called to seek justice and defend the defenceless. We are all called to give generously. We are all called to love others more than we love ourselves. When this happens, we see change and we see others brought to freedom. Because Every Life…is Worth Fighting For!
