About the Freedom Fund
The Freedom Fund (www.freedomfund.org) is a global fund with the sole aim of helping end modern slavery.
We are a catalyst in the global effort to end modern slavery, working in the countries and sectors where it is most prevalent. We invest in and partner with organisations and communities on the frontlines of ending exploitation.
By partnering with those at risk of modern slavery as well as visionary investors, governments, and anti-slavery organisations, we bring together the knowledge, the capital and the will needed to dismantle the systems that allow slavery to exist and thrive.
Through our investments and support, we aim to shift power, so that frontline organisations and communities can shape and drive the change required to bring modern slavery to an end.
In its first eight years, the Freedom Fund has supported over 140 organisations in Bangladesh, Brazil, Ethiopia, Indonesia, India, Kenya, Myanmar, Nepal, and Thailand.

About the program
Through our innovative hotspot model, we convene strategically aligned networks of anti-slavery NGOs in high prevalence areas around the world to multiply the capacity, impact, and influence of frontline partners. Since 2021, the Freedom Fund is supporting a portfolio of grants to NGOs and consultants to address the commercial sexual exploitation of children (CESC) in Brazil.
Building on Freedom Fund’s successful hotspot model, and with funding from the U.S. Department of State and other donors, the Brazil CSEC Hotspot program, Com.Direitos, works in direct partnership with local civil society, as well as in collaboration with local government and businesses to drive the strategic changes needed to eradicate the commercial sexual exploitation of children in the Recife Metropolitan Region. To achieve this goal, the program focuses on: Improving policies to confront CSEC and coordination among stakeholders, advancing scientific knowledge about the issue, support, information and skills to survivors and vulnerable children, and reducing social acceptance and demand for CSEC.
