The Charity's lineage can be traced back to 2013, when our founding member began collaborating with Fiet Gratia who are part of Project Rescue, a global network of people fighting to end slavery. We assisted in meeting the needs of survivors of human trafficking at the Detention Centre for Foreigners in Madrid and a safe home, by providing clothing and toiletries. We called this 'Gift of Compassion'.
But we soon realised providing for their immediate needs was only part of the answer. In 2017, we made the decision to start Life after Liberation, a charity with a focus on education, as many survivors express a desire to move on with their lives, but cannot afford the education that will enable them to do so.
Migrant Help believe there are thousands of victims of Human Trafficking living in Scotland, and we want to do something to help.
We believe education is the key to a positive and more successful future. Our desire is that through the work we do, every survivor will be given hope and a chance to rebuild their lives.
