Why We Need Hope
Human slavery is not a history lesson. Right now, many women, children and men are trafficked -- forced or manipulated into service -- for work or prostitution. It is estimated that 49.6 million people are currently enslaved worldwide, more than the entire population of Canada. Find out more.
Hope is our action plan to end modern slavery, because everyone deserves freedom to hope. Check out our Hope Parent Training Video located on the DMK for more information.

Human exploitation and victimization is a complex issue. Learn more here.
Since 2016, doTERRA Healing Hands has collaborated with trusted and professional partners to activate a comprehensive action plan for prevention, rescue, and restoring dignity and hope.
Advocates of hope, people just like you, are taking action in three ways:
Taking personal responsibility to prevent human trafficking in our local communities through education and protecting our most vulnerable.
Supporting local experts, task forces and law enforcement who are professionally trained to perform responsible rescue operations.
