Global Education Philanthropists FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Global EP Will Reveal Big Announcement on World Day Against Human Trafficking
Non-profit has quickly adapted its efforts to counter new human trafficking challenges
ST. GEORGE, Utah, Friday, July 24, 2020 — Global Education Philanthropists (Global EP) is an anti-human trafficking non-profit based in St. George with operations and partnerships spanning the globe. On July 30, the non-profit will announce a new project in conjunction with the World Day Against Trafficking in Persons.
Human trafficking is the world’s fastest-growing crime. Occurring domestically and around the world, human trafficking takes many forms. These forms include: forced labor, the use of children as soldiers, domestic servitude, sexual exploitation, and organ donation.
The official announcement will be made on July 30, World Day Against Trafficking in Persons. Volunteers from all places and backgrounds can be involved in this new project. “The movement is starting. We are building an army. To join in the fight follow us on Instagram and Facebook to hear the announcements and to get updates” CEO Cammy Bowker said on July 24. Global humanitarian trips and local human trafficking aftercare support are some of the organization’s past initiatives.
Global EP has taken a strategic approach to the fight against human trafficking. Unlike many anti-human trafficking organizations, Global EP does more than just fund rescues or extractions of victims. With the average victim returning to the trafficking life 7 to 15 times, Global EP focuses on prevention, education, and aftercare in addition to extractions. The organization connects victims with empowering resources, such as trusted aftercare centers and scholarships for higher education.
Global EP is already recruiting volunteers for its PEARL initiative. PEARL is an acronym for: Prevention, Extraction, Advocacy, Reintegration, and Lead. Through its own programs and strategic partnerships, the non-profit is making PEARL a reality to lead the anti-human trafficking movement.
Some ways the non-profit is already accomplishing PEARL is by empowering human trafficking survivors through medical, emotional, and life skills assistance. Global EP works closely with its partner Adaptive Ops to support extractions. The non-profit also has a subscription option on its website that uses donations to directly keep survivors employed. Each subscription order comes with a bracelet signed by a survivor and includes their escape date.
Global EP further reduces exploitation through:
- Higher education scholarships through the Global Education Foundation, which enables survivors to attend university or vocational trade school.
- If needed, scholarship placement in a mental health care facility.
- Lifelong mental health support, rehabilitation, and legal resources.
- Supports extractions through its partnership with Adaptive Ops.
