Listed by usnews.com as one of the “10 Service Groups That Are Making a Difference”, the International Justice Mission (IJM) is slowly but surely making a dent in social injustice statistics across the globe. The agency was created in 1997 when a group of lawyers, human rights professionals and public officials came together to work for the restraint of those exploiting people through slavery. At present, they have operations in Cambodia, the Philippines, Thailand, India, Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda, Zambia, Bolivia, Guatemala, Honduras and Peru, with the headquarters in Washington, D.C.
The IJM fights shoulder to shoulder with the local governments to prosecute slavery offenders, rescue the victims of these crimes and help fortify communities to promote functioning and healthy justice systems (www.ijm.org/whoweare).
