Marici’s Holistic Solution

Marici’s holistic solution reduces child sex trafficking by over 80% in highly affected regions.

  • Intelligence Collection: Infiltrating and raiding child sex trafficking networks
  • Aftercare: Rehabilitating rescued survivors
  • Legal: Prosecuting criminal syndicates
  • Community Building: Mobilizing communities to drive government action

Intelligence Collection

We have built a unique ability to identify traffickers, understand them, and disrupt them.

To collect intelligence, our undercover teams cultivate sources and we embed our team members in child sex trafficking networks. Using this intelligence, our analysts map these syndicates’ activities, connections, victims, and locations leveraging the world's leading intelligence analysis software. We then design custom takedown strategies for each syndicate. Our intelligence teams meticulously collect the evidence that our legal team needs to shut down these networks.

Once a network is flagged Ready to Raid, we:
STEP1Partner with police units, providing them with intel.
STEP2Raid the syndicate’s locations.
STEP3Arrest and prosecute the criminals, shut down the establishments, and liberate the survivors.
In 2020, despite global lockdowns, we eliminated 15 criminal networks, which saved 630 girls from being trafficked. We also mapped another 700+ criminals in 70+ networks. We are taking down 50 of these trafficking networks this year to save 6,300 girls from being trafficked.
STORIES FROM THE GROUND
Intel Collection

One of our female undercover operatives gathered intelligence on a spa that was engaged in sex trafficking. She cultivated an employee there who introduced her to the kingpin that was running multiple spas. She managed to build trust and get hired to work under the kingpin, even getting promoted to being her bookkeeper. She has been embedded in this network for months and has mapped a number of child sex trafficking networks connected to the kingpin and many locations across the city that are selling girls. This kind of intelligence fuels our operations and gives freedom to survivors.

Aftercare

Childhood is all about fun, laughter, and learning. When a girl is sex trafficked, all of this is taken from her.

She loses her home, her family, and her future. Our aftercare team brings the power of true healing to uplift these children into joy, peace, and love. Our counselors use the best science-based therapies to move them past their trauma. Our educators activate their natural curiosity with play-based learning and gamified digital classrooms.

We bring their aspirations to life through career counseling, training, and support with job placement in their field of interest.

These programs restore the fun, laughter, and learning that make childhood so precious.

Our aftercare team takes care of the health needs of the survivor from the moment she is rescued throughout her aftercare journey.
Case work covers every aspect of aftercare support and is all-encompassing in a survivor’s rehabilitation process. It includes continuous follow ups by social workers and counsellors to holistically move her through our aftercare services. We provide psychological counselling, design her educational and skills training journey, monitor her progress in all our programs, support reunification with families when safe, and ensure successful reintegration.
Our team conducts home investigations which help us understand how the survivor was trafficked. Meetings and counselling sessions are conducted with parents of survivors to ascertain whether reunification is possible. In many cases, for a plethora of reasons, reunification is not possible and the survivors’ potential for future success is better accommodated within the environment of the shelter home.
Our gamified AI-based digital learning program brings more fun into the shelter homes and teaches survivors conversational English in 6-12 months in an exciting, personalized way. The ability to speak English is one of the most powerful economic tools our girls can be given.
Our team uplifts our survivors through this therapeutic program filled with joy, healing, and inspiration. This includes music, art, dance therapy, an online fitness program, problem solving and leadership training, festival celebrations, wilderness camp, board games, storytelling, magic shows, movie nights, theater, healthy cooking lessons, gardening, meditation, journaling, and play of various forms.
Our mentors empower survivors with professional and life skills. These healthy and positive mentor-mentee relationships help them overcome their pain and suffering and set them up for future success.
Career guidance starts off with psychometric tests of the girls, followed by career counselling sessions with mentors. These sessions are conducted on a one-on-one basis, with an experienced career counsellor who provides 360-degree insight, training program identification, and job placement support.
“Hello. I have learned lots of things. I have learned to talk in English. I have learned how to use the laptop because of the English program. I will keep learning while I am here. Thank you for giving me this opportunity.”
Sasha

Rescued survivor who couldn’t speak English 4 months ago.

“I am not guilty of my past, but today I feel it is my duty to speak the truth and save hundreds of other girls.”

Testifying against her traffickers

Community Building

We leverage the transformative power of social movements.

We use our criminal network disruption activities to show communities the horrors of the child sex trafficking happening in their neighborhoods.

We then mobilize communities to demand sex trafficking hubs are shut down, businesses involved in sex trafficking be held accountable, and governments take strict action against trafficking networks.

We launch protests, media stories, and coalitions that demand an end to this heinous exploitation of children. We recruit decision makers to shut down sex trafficking operations.

This community force drives strict government action, corporates to clean up their act, and high impact regulations. We turn communities into the frontline of defense against this crime, creating a sustainable impact and systemic change.

Presently, the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the livelihoods of millions of people and as a result, supply for underage girls is at an all-time high. This is the perfect storm for sex traffickers to prey on desperate families. We're currently deploying emergency solutions to protect vulnerable children by setting up village child protection units in rural communities badly affected by sex trafficking. These village protection units track vulnerable children and families to ensure children do not get trafficked.

In 2020, we ran grassroots community movements in 12 major cities to successfully keep known trafficking hubs closed, saving over 1,500 girls from being sex trafficked.
STORIES FROM THE GROUND
Social Movement

No community believes that little girls should be raped. In one city we work in, when the community saw a news story about a young rescued girl who was held in a brothel for six months and raped everyday, they stormed the area, occupied it, and demanded that the police shut it down. Their actions led to the complete closure of the establishments and many future children being saved.
