WHAT WE DO

Our Chidrens Keeper foundation is dedicated to “BEING THE VOICE FOR THE MISSING & VOICELESS” by providing a platform of hope for the overwhelming number of missing persons of colour. Together, we can and will make a difference and bring Our Children home.

Our Childrens Keepers Foundation is designed to enable the eradication of modern slavery, and sex trafficking of vulnerable individuals of all races, and most importantly Black Children. The Foundation strives to locate,recover abducted and missing individuals(Children) in Atlanta and beyond.The foundation intends to help families financially, by assisting them with private investigation & attorney fees, and sometimes burial cost. We try to really capture the inner beauty essence on the prevention side.

The objective is to prevent it from happening and prevent them from being vulnerable and susceptible to certain risk factors, then that is something we can do, to help strengthen our communities.

The perception of society was that,a sex traffic victim, usually comes from a dysfunctional home where the father wasn’t there or both parents on drugs, latchkey kids, abandoned. But research indicates that we have kids that come from homes fully functional, middle-class, where both parents are fully engaged with them and they still fall victim to sex trafficking.


Her passion for this work comes from her understanding of the old adage, “But for the grace of God, there go I”.

Research indicates that human trafficking is a $32 billion-a-year industry and is on the rise in all 50 states, where 4.5 Million of trafficked persons are sexually exploited. Up to 300,000 Americans under 18 are lured into the commercial sex trade every year.

60% of sex trafficking victims, are vulnerable black children from within our welfare system, who live in the most deprived communities in America.


Human trafficking is a global, multi-billion-dollar enterprise, where black children are at a higher risk.Every year, millions of black children fall victim to traffickers for the purpose of exploitation. This includes prostitution, forced labour, domestic servitude. A crime that shames us all, human trafficking robs black children of their dignity, dreams and basic human rights.

Everyone, especially children, should be taught to be observant of their surroundings, and not to trust everyone they meet via various social media.

OUR CHILDREN

The first 24 to 48 hours after the disappearance of a child are crucial in order to return the child back home, as they are likely to be approached by a pimp or buyer to participate in prostitution or other commercial sex acts.Trafficking is one of the fastest growing industries within the United States.

Atlanta, Georgia has the largest sex trade in the U.S according to the United States Justice Department. Not only is Atlanta known as the largest city for sex traffic, but it is also recognized as one of the top 14 cities in which children are forced into prostitution.  Each night there are more than 100 young girls exploited in the city. There are even more sold young girls sold online in the state of Georgia. The children and adolescents most susceptible to becoming a victim of the sex trade are those who are homeless, runaways, or come from broken homes. A contributing factor to Atlanta’s high rates is the heavy traffic through the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport

Even though the sex trade is the largest in Atlanta, this is not an isolated case and this is an epidemic in other areas of the U.S. Traffickers make thousands of dollars per week exploiting these poor children and young adolescents. Here are a few facts you should know about this horrific epidemic nationally.

Trafficking also entails recruitment of children for the purposes of labour and services, which is why it is often referred to as form of modern-day slavery.
