Short description:
Since 2000, The Future Group's principal work has centered on confronting human trafficking and the child sex trade in Southeast Asia. Given the trans-national nature of this crisis, there is increasingly a focus on North America and Europe as well.

The Future Group works to:

1. Prevent human trafficking by working with source countries to address root causes including deterring the demand side of the industry;

2. Protect trafficking victims including rescue, rehabilitation and, when appropriate, repatriation and reintegration efforts; and,


3. Prosecute traffickers and commercial sex-users in criminal proceedings.

To provide assistance and education to persons in need including small business training, life management skills, counselling, and other support services to assist victims of abuse to become more independent in the community.


To relieve poverty in developing nations by providing medical and other basic supplies to persons in need.


To educate the public, professionals, and local businesses about prevention of and responses to abuse by offering courses, seminars, literature, conferences, and meetings and by collecting and disseminating information on that topic.


To provide support for those affected by debilitating diseases, illness, and conditions by offering education and counselling and by establishing mutual support groups.
