The Faith for Freedom App is a practical information tool for faith leaders, clergy and their staff to help identify modern slavery and human trafficking and safeguard their communities.
Produced by the Global Freedom Network, this free app provides clear, concise information about the crimes of modern slavery. It explains what modern slavery is, how to detect it, how to respond to people affected by it, and how and where to find help to address it.
The App has country-specific information as well as an international mode. The App was developed in collaboration with advisory panels of faith leaders.
We recognise that faith leaders see into the hearts of their communities and can play a vital role in protecting their congregations from harm.
The app offers information on how to identify the victims, how to help, and other resources which can assist faith leaders in engaging their congregations against these acts of modern slavery. The app has also made interfaith cooperation possible in a world where there is so much division.
It is loaded with so many resources that the Africa Methodist Council had to introduce it to its members by inviting the Global Freedom Network to speak about it during the Council’s commemoration of the 2021 United Nations International Day for the Abolition of Slavery which is annually held on December 2 to raise awareness of the atrocities of modern slavery.
We at the Africa Methodist Council are willing to spread the use of the app to all our Conferences and especially among the young people who are mostly affected by human trafficking and irregular migration. I personally use the app as a ready-made resource for speaking on the atrocities of human trafficking.
Not only does it speak about the problem but links and resources to the solution are also part of the package.
Thank you Global Freedom Network for all you are doing in God’s name for humanity.”
