Website Love Justice International

About Us: Love Justice International (LJI) is a Christian nonprofit organization compelled by Gods love to fight the worlds greatest injustices.

Program and Position Overview: LJI’s anti-human trafficking model focuses on transit monitoring. We identify, intercept, and assist trafficking victims as they are being transportedwhen victims and traffickers are the most visible and open to detectionand before they reach the destination where victims will be sold, hidden, and abused. Because the crime of trafficking has already commenced, we have access to actionable intelligence which can be used to assist police in the apprehension of suspects and to better understand trafficking methods. To multiply the impact in countries weve launched investigations teams and conducted police trainings. To date, we have intercepted over 35,000 individuals to prevent them from being trafficked. More than 1,200 arrests have stemmed from our anti-trafficking work with 33% of closed cases resulting in convictions.

To ensure excellence among our field offices in Asia and Africa, Love Justice has developed more than 30 “core processes” to implement in each office to monitor performance and compliance. These processes involve a variety of different areas, such as budgeting and financial reporting, administration and human resources, data collection and compliance, security audit and investigations, shelter care, and legal cases.
