Who We Are
Footprint to Freedom is a survivor-led organization run exclusively by survivors of human trafficking to create spaces and programs that develop the agency and leadership of survivors of trafficking to support recovery from trauma and to sustain their reintegration into society.
The organization champions survivor-led initiatives to combat human trafficking in the Netherlands and East Africa (Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda, and expanding to Burundi and Tanzania). Our general activities focus on six-interlinked approaches: Prevention, Education, Empowerment, Engagement, Reintegration, and Advocacy.
We focus on survivor leadership, empowerment, vulnerability reduction, and recovery rather than rescue with an eye toward the long-term health and well-being of survivors.

- Human rights and survivor inclusion
