The mission of the Touch of Life Foundation is to restore, heal and empower survivors of human trafficking. Additionally, we strive to educate and advocate for combating modern-day slavery through social enterprise led by youth. We welcome you to join us in this important mission.
Our Human Rights Movement
Awareness is crucial to combat modern-day slavery. The Touch of Life Foundation has led numerous campaigns to raise awareness about child trafficking and child labor that has produced real change across the world. Through social media outreach, educational events, fundraisers, and volunteer opportunities organized by our dedicated members, we work to continue to raise awareness about this dire issue and encourage leaders and decision-makers across the globe to implement laws in their respective countries to severely punish perpetrators of this growing illegal trade.
Touch of Life Foundation is a student-led non-profit (501c3) organization who aims to help rescue and protect underprivileged women and children from exploitation, labor, and trafficking. Our goal is to educate and empower these individuals to fight for their rights, ensuring they have access to freedom, equal rights, and education. We are committed to combining local efforts with global needs. Based in the United States, our transformative Human Rights Movement mobilizes people from all over the world to take action and create a meaningful and lasting impact. At the heart of our work is every child’s right to freedom.
Highlights and Ways to Help
TOLF Board Induction
We express our sincere gratitude to Kailash Satyarthi, the 2014 Nobel Peace Laureate, for inaugurating the Touch of Life Foundation Student Board of Directors. During his inspiring speech, he shared his personal journey and the mission to eliminate child labor and trafficking in his lifetime. He encouraged everyone to make a difference by contributing their individual efforts, just as a single hummingbird can help extinguish a fire. Join us in the fight against child labor and trafficking by doing your part.
Wall of Freedom at the Bal Ashram
It is truly amazing to see the artistic abilities of these talented children rescued from child labor! Upon arrival at Bal Ashram, they receive education, art and music classes, vocational training, as well as medical and psychological care. They are showered with love and support to help them recover physically and mentally, empowering them to live fulfilling lives. The "Wall of Freedom" is a beautiful expression of each child's unique perspective on freedom.
Our foundation greatly relies on fundraising efforts and we would like to express our gratitude to all those who have supported us. Thanks to bake sales, annual shows, donations, and sponsorships, we have been able to provide support to victims of child trafficking and labor. We are proud to have recently sponsored the construction of a basketball and volleyball court for rescued victims.
Outreach and Education
Our foundation strongly believes that the most effective solutions for societal issues originate from within, and thus our goal is to raise awareness to make this a global reality. In order to accomplish our mission, it is crucial to educate the public about the dangers and repercussions of child trafficking. No community is immune to this heinous crime.
At the Touch of Life Foundation, we prioritize partnership and have established a supportive environment with helpful resources. By collaborating with other organizations, we have been able to make a greater impact in our fight against child trafficking and child labor. We invite you to join us in this cause and become a part of our efforts.
Advocacy and Legislation
Advocate to government officials to encourage social media companies to put more resources into identifying inappropriate content and encourage lawmakers to implement stricter laws with harsher penalties for crimes committed against children.
