What we do


Free a Girl was founded in 2008, based on the vision that every child has the right to grow up in a safe environment. All children around the world must be protected against every form of commercial sexual exploitation. 


Free a Girl is striving for a world free of commercial sexual exploitation of children. We do this by providing direct assistance to survivors and by tackling impunity.


In our operations, Free a Girl’s work is based on the following four core values:

  • The girls are paramount: as the projects revolve around them, we consider it essential that their input counts and that they have a say wherever possible.
  • Action-oriented: our approach and that of our partners is centred on action.
  • Fair: in how we communicate and what we expect from our partners. This is also what motivates us to do this work: we think that it is unjust that girls are being exploited.
  • Innovative: we look for new ways to fight child prostitution in both the programme and the donor countries.
