TGIF Episode 3 - 3Strands Global Foundation
3Strands Global Foundation
A World free from Human Trafficking, that's 3Strands Vision!
3Strands Global Foundation's story began on May 25th 2010, when a group of world-shakers founded the Break Free Run in response to a tragic event. A young girl was taken from a shopping center parking lot and trafficked for 8 days. This happened right here in our area. The girl had been spending time with her friends in a shopping center parking lot; talking, laughing and having fun, as teenagers do. Through quick action by the local and state authorities this young girl was recovered and escaped what would be a lifetime of pain.
Some months later, Ashlie - Co-founder, President and CEO of 3Strands asked her, "Where could we have been to prevent this from happening?" She responded with, "In school. If I had learned what human trafficking was and the tactics that traffickers use, I would have know how to protect myself." This response later sparked the creation of the PROTECT prevention education program, which has gone on to educate over 35,000 students.
