The Freedom Fund is a leader in the global movement to end modern slavery.  We identify and invest in the most effective frontline efforts to eradicate modern slavery in the countries and sectors where it is most prevalent. Partnering with visionary investors, governments, anti-slavery organizations and those at risk of exploitation, we tackle the systems that allow slavery to persist and thrive.  Working together, we protect vulnerable populations, liberate and reintegrate those enslaved and prosecute those responsible.


The Freedom Fund has programs in northern India, southern India, Ethiopia, Thailand, south-eastern Nepal and central Nepal. We currently support and fund approximately 100 organizations in these regions, the vast majority of which are frontline, community-based NGOs. We also work to influence global policy by commissioning and sharing research and amplifying the voices of our partners.
