Free a Girl
The international charity of this year is Free a Girl.
Free a Girl makes strives to liberate underaged girls from forced prostitution. Besides liberating these girls, they also work really hard on prevention, taking down lawlessness, lobbying & advocacy, rehabilitation and re-integration of these girls. Free a Girl co-operates with 14 organisations in India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Thailand, Laos, Iraq, Brazil and the Netherlands. In the past 11 years, they have contributed to the liberation of over 4500 girls.
The charity has two main targets: Stopping child prostitution and creating worldwide awareness for the existence of child prostitution and showing them how essential it is to liberate these girls. These two targets are clearly found in the way Free a Girl operates. More information can be found on www.freeagirl.nl.
