Child Slavery Prevention
How We’re Making Freedom Sustainable.
Set Free is entirely dependent on the generosity of donors, churches, and businesses to fund our work overseas, and our incredible partners are on the front lines living out their callings and counting on us to provide their funds. With consistent, reliable gifts coming in through the Cornerstone members, our partners are able to know their regular work will be taken care of and allow them to dream about what else God wants to accomplish through them.
40% Indian Children Enslaved Each Year
01 Children Forced to Work as Payment
Exploiting the poverty and desperation of parents, lenders offer loans with terms that allow them to take children as payment. When families cannot repay their loans, agents remove the children and force them to work in mines or brothels.We’re Stopping the Cycle →

02 Set Free Pays the Lender
To stop this cycle of slavery, Set Free intervenes by repaying loans directly to the lenders, receiving the paid-in-full paperwork, and eliminating the opportunity for the lender to claim children as payment.Working with the Family →
98% Of Loans Repaid In Full
03 Family Repays Set Free
After Set Free pays the lender, the families repay us at terms they can afford, either in cash or the equivalent of rice or firewood, which we use to care for children we’ve rescued who, for various reasons, have been unable to reunite with their families.Reinvesting in Others →
04 Set Free Reinvests for the Future
When families repay Set Free in cash, we put those payments back into our program to pay off loans for other families, creating a sustainable model of freedom and prevention that secures a brighter future for the families we serve.Get Involved Today →
