Who We Are
Restoration Project International (RPI) is a nonprofit organization founded August 2nd, 2013. Moved by the large scale and global impact of human trafficking – an estimated 4.5 Million persons trafficked are sexually exploited. Up to 300,000 Americans under the age of 18 are lured into the commercial sex trade every year. About 17,500 of trafficked victims are transported into the United States each year.
Human Trafficking (HT) is a global problem which has attracted the attention of the United Nations and world Leaders. Why? Because it is an advanced form of slavery, over 21 million people are involved, and a multi-billion dollar criminal enterprise – the 3rd largest criminal enterprise in the world. It is troubling because children and women are mostly affected. This global scourge is a violation of human rights.

Millions of girls and women are trafficked for sexual and labor exploitation, including pornography and prostitution; and indentured servitude. RPI’s ultimate goal is to engage all stakeholders in social change to help rehabilitate survivors and eradicate trafficking.
What We Fight For
Our ultimate goal is to foster economic freedom and ease transition into communal life. Our programs are interwoven to achieve these goals. We begin with providing a platform for victims and survivor to receive help and or referred to where they may find help. This safe and secure space makes it easier for our girls to receive tools for socio-economic empowerment for sustainable restoration. Through our Aspire Mentorship Program we see girls empowered to pursue their dreams, reintegrate into communal; our Education Program is the driving force for social change for a long term goal of prevention and protection. We are proactive in our partnerships to identity service needs both in communities and among rescued girls.
