About Rapha International
Our mission is to end the trafficking and sexual exploitation of children through aftercare for survivors, prevention for the vulnerable, and awareness for all.
Rapha International is a public benefit 501(c)(3) nonprofit committed to ending the trafficking and sexual exploitation of children. Founded in 2003, Rapha continues to rescue and rehabilitate children, while bringing them to lasting freedom. Love • Rescue • Heal is more than a slogan to us. It’s a way of life at Rapha International.
We are Christians who take seriously the Scripture that reads: “Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth” (1 John 3:18). And it is with compassion energized and sustained by love that we act on behalf of victimized children wherever we find them.
Though we are committed Christians, we offer aid without requiring those that we help to embrace our faith. When Jesus fed the 5,000, he did not withhold from those who refused to believe. He gave freely, and so do we.
No child deserves to be trafficked. No child deserves to be sexually exploited. Rapha International’s vision is to see children living safely in communities without the threats of trafficking and sexual exploitation.
Rapha International seeks to…
- prevent the trafficking of children before it starts
- rescue children who have already been trafficked
- operate safe houses for the healing of these children
- train and re-integrate children who come into their care
