“…Slavery is the darkest hole of poverty…”

– Kevin Bales

END MODERN SLAVERY

At Engage Now Africa we recognize the great urgency to act to end modern slavery and help those most vulnerable to exploitation. To prevent and combat this global problem ENA has formed strategic and dynamic partnerships with survivors, local community leaders, Non-Governmental Organizations, International anti-slavery organizations, governments, and law enforcement agencies to implement comprehensive long-term solutions in prevention, intervention, prosecution and rehabilitation.

Enslaved individuals are forced to work without pay and under the threat of violence while traffickers make nearly $150 billion a year. They are found in brothels, massage parlors, factories, mines, farm fields, fishing villages, construction sites and homes. Many slaves have been trafficked with false promises of jobs or education. Poverty is the primary cause of slavery.

Modern Slavery Impact Report

Help Us End Child Sacrifice

Definition:

Child Sacrifice, as defined by Jubilee Campaign and our partnerKyampisi Childcare Ministries, is the act of murdering a child by a witch-doctor or their accomplices in order to use the child’s blood, organs and/or limbs mixed with herbs and other elements in a ritual witchcraft ceremony. The witch-doctor organizes the abduction and sacrifice and this criminal act is undertaken for payment. They convince their client that this ritual murder will make their magical rite more powerful and that it will be able to fulfill their wish of gaining wealth and prosperity.

In Our Own Backyard Campaign

In the United States we have launched the “In Our Backyard” campaign, a domestic partnership-building and advocacy program created to raise awareness of human trafficking or modern slavery right here in America. Our unique program also works with vulnerable African refugees now living in America.
Learn more about our spokesperson, ambassadors, and services that are helping prevent and end modern slavery right here in our own backyards.

Our Refugee Advocate Services

We prevent the exploitation and vulnerability of African refugees living here in the United States in select cities by assisting them with integrating into their new homes and communities. We work with our local partners to connect refugees to critical services such as housing, medical, education, job training and other resources so they can become self-reliant new Americans. We have established partnerships and relationships with local governments, non-profits, universities, students, churches, volunteers, and community leaders. In Africa, specifically Ghana, Sierra Leone, Ethiopia, Uganda and Namibia we are helping people and communities internally displaced due to poverty, conflict and natural disasters with solutions to improve their lives.

“Let us ask ourselves, as individuals and as communities, whether we feel challenged when, in our daily lives, we meet or deal with persons who could be victims of human trafficking, or when we are tempted to select items which may well have been produced by exploiting others. Some of us…close our eyes to this. Others, however, decide to do something about it …”

Advocate for Refugees in the United States
Tito Momen is Engage Now Africa’s Advocate for Refugees in the United States. He has made it his mission to help end the exploitation and vulnerability of African refugees here in the United States so they can become self-reliant, new Americans. Prior to this he worked for ENA in Ghana in 2006 as a liaison officer, Self-Support Assistance Program, and spent several years working with Liberian refugees in the UNHCR camp. A refugee himself from Africa, he has now made his home in Utah where he is married and pursuing his BA in political science with an emphasis on peace and justice.

A memoir of faith, freedom, and redemption, this is an inspirational story of a man whose life decisions resulted in a life sentence at notoriously harsh Egyptian prison until his physical and spiritual release. Tito is a sought after public speaker and is featured at many public and private events. 
 
He is also fluent in Arabic and has cultivated many positive relationships with various religious and community leaders, Universities, local non-profits, and law enforcement agencies. We are proud Tito is utilizing his vast experiences to help refugees here in the United States.
