Since 2009, we have rescued and rehabilitated 140 victims of human trafficking in Uganda. We believe that in the face of the unthinkable, there is hope. That lives can be restored and made new. That people were created to not just survive, but thrive. 

Our Mission is to Rescue and provide aftercare to victims of human trafficking. 

Human Trafficking is an international issue, affecting more than 20.9 million victims worldwide. Through research-based intervention, Willow International operates loving aftercare homes and resource centers. Our staff provide individualized case management that enables beneficiaries to participate in a program tailored to their specific needs. The goal of the aftercare program is to empower victims to heal from trauma and become self-sufficient.  Case management services include psychosocial support, educational and vocational scholarships, career development, access to healthcare, business skills training, family reunification, financial and English literacy training, and referral services. In addition, the organization promotes advocacy and prevention through education and community engagement.

Willow is a home of happiness, a home of joy, a home of life, and love. When I arrived, people were waiting for me with happiness and so much love. Everyone knew my name.
— Lillian, Survivor of Human trafficking
